January in review (plus the giveaway WINNER)

At the beginning of this month I shared with you my New Year's Resolutions. Now that the month is over, I can't wait to show you how I've been doing!

One of my resolutions was to lose 50 pounds by 2012. I broke that huge goal into 12 mini-goals: to lose 5 pounds a month. I also made the goal to workout at least 3 times a week.

I'm so happy to report that I have been sticking to my goals and am quite on track. I've been doing Couch to 5k and strength training 3 times a week and Zumba once a week. I've also been strictly following Weight Watchers, tracking all my food and sticking to my points allowance. I've been eating a lot of fruits and vegetables (about 7-8 servings a day) and have eliminated all liquid calories from my diet.

So what did all that get me?

I have a lot more energy and I generally feel better.


I've lost 9.5 pounds!!!!

Here's what my month of weight loss and workouts looked like:
