Updates, No Meat, Running Goal, Yoga Goal

I feel good about how the Workout Warrior Challenge went. I completed the final fit test the other day. Before the challenge, I did the fit test in 11:07. My goal was to complete the final in 10:00. I am proud to say I did it in 10:05. Not bad 🙂 I do feel stronger, faster and more fit from doing the challenge. I have had a couple of peeps ask me about doing another one. I would love to do something so I will keep you posted.

If you read my last blog post you will know what my new goals are for November and December. It is now day 6 on the “no meat” plan for 17 days. I have to say it is really not hard to be without it. I have made a couple of great meatless entrees over the weekend. I made the Mexican Stuffed Peppers (I have blogged about this before) and a new recipe last night, Eggplant Parmesan (recipe to come soon). It was delicious! I had fish the other night, so pretty easy so far to be meat free. I feel great too.

My running goal has started off good. I ran short distances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I took off yesterday which I feel like I should have done a run but that is in the past. Today is a new day, so I will make the most of it. I only have about 192 miles left 🙂

Yoga is my favorite. Started a new yoga class last Thursday, Power Yoga. I love it but some of the yogis were a little ruffled. I think when something completely new is introduced people tend to get a little worked up. Once we do a few classes, things will go smooth. As far as my Scorpion and Firefly pose goals, I am working away on meeting that goal. I will begin to post some pics of me attempting these soon.

Have you set your new goals! Shout them out! I would love to hear about them 🙂

I did say I would post a before pic of me to see if there are any changes that are noticeable physically by December 31, 2012. Here it is.
