Back to my Happy Place (WW #3)

January got off to a crazy start, and before I knew it I blinked and here we are, midway through February. The weather has been uncooperative and there have been a few events that led me to not feel like going down to the trail to run. But this weekend, the stars finally aligned!

Okay, so obviously the weather wasn’t perfect – it was a little overcast and a lot humid, but there was a great breeze and I got in quite a few miles, and my soul felt like it finally took a giant exhale.

I’m still going strong 💪🏼 with Body Beast. I recently finished the Build Phase, and boy am I not sad to see it go. Those workouts just weren’t my favorite. But now I’m in Bulk Phase and the workouts are shorter and more focused and that makes me happy. It’s also a lot easier to do a 20 – 30 min workout at 6am (ok, really make that 6:20 most days) than it is a 40 – 50 min one.

We’re not going to talk about my weight, which has been … what’s the opposite of a free-fall, cause yea, that, for months now, but I’m gaining muscle for sure and feel stronger, so that’s all most of what counts!
