In the past couple of months I've set all sorts of personal exercise milestones. The two I'm most proud of are running a sub 8 minute mile and being able to do 40 continuous motion push ups in a row. I wanted to die after running that mile, but it felt good to push myself to my limit. Running has always been a weakness of mine and I still don't enjoy it. When it comes to the pushups, I'm trying to get to 50 in a row. I'm not quite there yet but I could barely do 10 good ones at the end of September, so I've made a lot of progress on that.
As far as weight goes, I'm not focused on losing anymore. I'm pretty happy at this weight, but do need to continue to shed excess fat around my midsection. Like I said in June, it's really more about body fat percentage now. Building muscle will help with that so I may add some free weights or something at some point. As long as I'm seeing improvement with just body weight exercises, I'll likely just stick with those.
I'm hoping that with the various vaccines out there that COVID will become just another thing we deal with like the common cold or the flu. That will allow things to go back to normal and that will result in less stressors and a better mental health overall. I would like to start incorporating more self care outside of exercise, but I don't know what exactly that is yet. Meditation has never really stuck and alone time to doing things outside of exercise is basically non-existent with three littles ones and a house to maintain. That being said, I want to make a couple lifestyle changes soon as a part of my 2021 resolutions so I might have something in mind.
