So...guess what?! I'm amazed! After some *pretty* careful eating the last couple of days, a great workout (finally) last night.... I'm DOWN 1.8!!! Seriously?! I was so stinkin' happy when I stepped on that scale this morning! I was honestly hoping to maintain. I'm not gonna pretend I didn't *know* what I was dealing with. I know I've mentioned before - I weigh myself all the time...haha. At one point this week, I was UP 5 pounds! Not cool!
Anyway - I'm doing the happy dance! After a few days without exercise and a little bit of being a sicky, I realized that this is normally where I may throw in the towel. Not on purpose, but, the momentum slows, and actually going out to exercise turns into thinking about going out.......then to wishing I were going out, but I don't wanna....then to "Ohmygosh my pants are too tight!" It's a week like this that you have to dig in a little deeper and act on those desires, think about how far you've come, and get busy!
Last night I did my first C25K workout in just about a week! Again, a little under the weather, so I didn't push myself TOO hard. I stopped 1/2 way to stretch and then continued on. I wanted to stop SO bad! The last 2 minutes sucked so bad, because it was uphill. I was determined, though. I finished that run!! That was all I was planning to do last night, BUT I ended up bumping into my walking buddy on her way out, so I turned around and walked all the way back around where I had just run! Another 2+ miles! Calories burned: 1001! :) AWE-SOME! :) I felt great!
I'm so thankful for the success I'm experiencing! I asked for God's help with this - and hey...He's been faithful! :) I know that He wants me to be healthy...and I'm pressing on to see this journey through. I mean, why stop now? He's given me this help - why be lazy and let the weight pile back on? It'd be kinda like a slap in the face, right?!
Until next time! :)
