I snapped 2 photos at the gym on Monday after my run:
That's how I feel lately.
I've been lifting a lot in the last 4-5 months, and I'm putting on some more muscle. See that shoulder in the first photo? I've NEVER had that before! And that photo was from just after running - not after lifting where I'd maybe look a little more "jacked."
But as that 2nd photo shows, I also have a bit more chub than I usually have. I've been eating better overall, but I've been snacking more. I'm up about 5 pounds from where I was last year. Yes, some of that might be muscle (even on my legs from the exercises I posted about on Monday), but there's plenty of extra chub too.
I was going to instagram those 2 photos together...
... but I didn't have the guts to post that to everyone I know on Instagram. (Like former students and lots of friends who don't read my blog.) But to keep things honest, I felt like posting it here.
We'll see if I can work on cutting out some of the excess snacks. I'm not cutting out everything - ooooooh noooooo. But I can be a LITTLE better / smarter / healthier.
