Things I forgot to post

Yikes!  I just realized the last time I updated my weekly weigh ins was in January!  Everything is up to date now but sadly there is a lot of red in the last couple of months.  I didn't give up but I did have some bumps in the road.  

Last year I started  The Gym Jar.  Every time I worked out I would throw a dollar in.   Back in November I reached 100 dollars to treat myself.  It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted since 100 workouts is a big deal!  That is a lot of blood, sweat and tears.   Buying a shirt or even a new workout outfit didn't feel right. So I held on to the money.  In January my friend asked me if I wanted to go  see Bruno Mars.  Finally I found a reward that felt right.  I love concerts and Bruno Mars :)  I will be seeing him this July.  

Back  in February I tried  a belly dancing class, this is one of my long term goals.   I liked it but I didn't love it.  I found it to be very technical and with not enough movement.  I barely broke a sweat.  I think I just wanted to shake my booty and sadly this did not happen. 

For my birthday last month,  Rob and my Mom chipped in  and bought me a Fitbit.  If you don't know what it is, it's basically a fancy pedometer.     I love it and realize I walk a lot when I am working.  

Work days-  range between 11,000 to 18,000 steps a day 
Days I don't work-  range between 3,000 to 9,000 steps

It makes me realize I need to move more on my days off.     

On Friday I decided to treat myself to a new haircut.  I am still getting use to it.  

I found this idea on Pinterest and made my own jars.  What do you think?  

Thanks for reading :)

    I'm SO impressed that you did the $1 per workout thing...if I had done that for every run, I'd be pretty rich right now, lol!! ;)
