Does the bathroom scale reading determine a healthy weight? No. It is not the amount of weight you lose that is the most important measure of well-being but rather the kind of weight you lose. If you gain 2 pounds of lean muscle mass and lose 2 pounds of body fat, your scale weight will not have changed, but you will be in better shape. Your goal is to lose body fat and gain, maintain and/or restore lean muscle mass.

Anti-Resolutionist

Hi!  Sorry for being a slacker here on my Reclaiming Fitness blog.  However, I have not been a slacker with my workout and nutrition.  This is my third year consistently working out and eating clean.  This is an accomplishment because I am no longer the annual New Years “resolutionist” who joins the gym in January and quits by March or April.  

Fitness has become MY lifestyle!!!  

I do get annoyed with the gym being so packed in January but some of those “resolutionist” people will persevere and make it a lifestyle too!

I’m Back

I have not been active on my Tumblr account for the past 2 months.  I got a new job and it has kept me busy from posting.  However, I have not slacked off on my exercise goals.  With my new job, I changed gyms so I could meet those exercise goals.  I changed gyms with class schedules that could fit into my new work schedule.  Though I hated to leave my friends and instructors at my previous gym, I knew I needed to make the change to stay on track.

With the change, I have found my new classes have benefited my fitness goals.  My new instructors focus more on total body workout with core exercises.  I have seen my body shape up in my gut area.  This is the hardest area for me as a middle aged woman. So whatever it takes to stay on track, do it.  Even if it means leaving your beloved gym for a new one.
