It's a New Year!!!

Happy 2015!!!  I'm so excited and ready for this new year.  I'm not making resolutions, I'm not going to say how this is the year I will finally accomplish xyz.  I'm just going to continue to work my ass off and work toward the goals I've had set for myself for a number of months now.

2014 ended on a high note!  I lost 5.6 pounds and 7 inches in the month of December.  Nothing earth shattering, but losing weight at all in a month filled with parties and treats is definitely a win!  I have 2 more weeks left in the first month of my DietBet.  I have 1.5 pounds left to go to reach my goal and I have a feeling I'm going to crush it!  Wait and see!

Today I started a new workout.  It's a mixed martial arts program called Combat and I LOVED it!!!!  I was sweating up a storm and grinning like a fool.  :-)  I'm seriously in love with this already.  I cannot wait to workout tomorrow.  Who'd have thought I'd be this excited to workout!  It's a 60 day program and I intend to do my best to stick to it to a T.  If I'm able to go without missing a day, then I will finish up on March 2nd!

I also started officially following IIFYM (if it fits your macros) yesterday, January 1st.  I've been following it loosely for a while now, but wasn't doing a great job of sticking to it.  That's not going to be the case anymore!  I am intent on accomplishing my fitness goals this year!  I paid to get my macros calculated by a professional and my goal macros are: 1810 calories, 63g Fat, 168g Carbs and 144g Protein.  I will shoot for these same numbers every single day.  I feel the calorie and carb levels are high enough for me to enjoy some "fun" foods, in addition to the clean food I'll eat the majority of the time.  That's what I need, something I can stick to long term.  Plus, I've seen some INCREDIBLE results from people in the Facebook group I'm in, so it's not just stock photos but their actual personal results.  So I'm excited to see where this takes me!

 Last, but not least, I just wanted to share my FitBit end of day numbers.  Green across the board!!!  I'm going to do my best to hit these numbers each day as well.  I have a HIGH tendency to be sedentary outside of workouts and I need to improve that.

That's all for now!!  I'm enjoying having time off and look forward to another great workout tomorrow and yummy, healthy food!
