Move it Mondays


I can't believe today is the last day of January.  Where has this month gone?  Not that I am overly sad as it means we are closer to spring.  
I did really well this week with workouts.  I hit the gym 4 days this week and got in at least 25 minutes each time.  My knee was really bothering me Monday night so I didn't last long.  I have learned not to push it to far when they are bothering me or I won't be able to workout for several days after that.  I used my Wii fit 3 days last week, one ab workout and one kettlebell workout.  
And I am so excited I got my sorry butt out of the bed 3 mornings to workout before work.  Now the goal is to keep it up.  It has gotten easier to get up and workout before work.  I have realized that I don't drag into the office as much on the days I do some sort of workout before work, and most days that is when I do my abs or strength workouts.  
I am so excited to say that I lost 2 pounds since the beginning of the year.  Not a huge number in one month but I am quite excited about it.  And I took my measurements over the weekend and am down 1/4 inch, all in my abs.  I was a little sad not to see more and that nothing came off my hips but I will take the losses anyway or anywhere they come.  
My goals for this week is to get up and workout 3 days again and maybe a 4th day.  And I want to get in two ab workouts this week.  I need to start working up to more strength workouts but I know me I need to concentrate on one thing at a time and I will get there.
