After going through a few days where I was dealing with having a bad attitude (feeling angry about "having" to eat healthy instead of feeling empowered, etc) I had a great week! I worked through those crappy few days and learned a lot about myself and what I want and what it takes to get what I want. Most of all, I need to constantly re-affirm to myself that I am NOT A WIMP if I don't want to be! :)
This little growth adventure helped spur some awesome workouts (well, my awesome trainer, Ami, helped with a few of those too!) and I've done some things I never really thought I could. Ami has me jumping rope and doing all sorts of cool and different things with weights and I have pushed myself with running/jogging on the treadmill and it feels good! :) I've also snuck in some extra cardio here and there which has been really nice and energizing!
So I lost 4 pounds this week! I am now in the fabulous 140's at 148 pounds!!! :) It's pretty darn exciting to only be 13 pounds away from my goal weight! I am planning on being to my goal weight of 135 around New Years. :) WOW....not one more year will be spent being obese or even over-weight! My body will not be anywhere near perfect, but I am so much healthier and happy than I was 5 months ago! It is so amazing how much can change in just 5 short months!
If you haven't started on your journey to better health, don't wait another day! Start NOW!! You have nothing to lose, and everything (and more) to gain!!! :)
