Left hand on the barre

I wound up not doing my shoulder stretches or leg stretches yesterday. Full disclosure!

What I did do, however, was sign into PumpUp and got going on that. I set up my profile and then made my first post! This photo:


The photo on the left is me on March 28th. The one on the right is me on July 6th. I cannot see any difference whatsoever! I know my clothes fit different and I know I’m stronger so I expected to see a bit of difference. There is none!! That was a bit disappointing.

However, the people in the PumpUp community have already proven to be super nice and supportive and motivating and I can now tell myself that “I did not get out of shape in just three months time. Why would I get in to shape in just three months time?” And? Focus on what I have been focusing on, the progress I make in the gym! So, that’s what I’m doing.

But I also told myself I was going to get more serious about the food and all of that so I signed back into MyFitnessPal, I wore the FitBit, I made sure all of my apps are all talking to each other and off I went for my day.

I took the stairs at work all day.

Then this evening I went to ballet class. Not as an exercise class, the straight up ballet one. And I gotta tell ya…I enjoy it. I do. I am really very happy that I am doing ballet. But I feel like the biggest, most giant girl ever in there. I just really do. I just feel large. the largest. And I’m not! But I feel like it. And I feel like I look awkward and strange doing the motions. So you’d think I’d hate it. But I don’t! I can’t even explain. I don’t understand myself. But I did get to wear my new ballet shoes in a class, finally!


And I have tracked my food today and according to the app I ate pretty well. Apparently I need to up my protein intake and watch the other stuff. These apps better not be trying to trick me into being paleo! I will go eat cheese right now, yes I will!

You know what? Now I want cheese.

But, on a serious note, to anyone that may be reading this…what is a way for me to incorporate vegetables into my diet? Right now I hardly get any! I really should change that. So, suggestions and recipes or anything would be great. Thank you!

  1. We sneak vegetables into Casey’s diet by way of those fruit/veggie juice combo drinks. I make myself eat a salad at lunch. Or put lettuce on my sandwich in order to get at least some veggies.
