IT IS ALL ABOUT THE HERE AND NOW!!

Looking back , I have lost 100 pounds and looking forward I would like to lose 30 more BUT neither of those things are the here and now and to be honest that is all we have ...is the here and now. This time , this moment , this chance to live and enjoy. It has taken a longer time to regain my physical strength after having surgery and devoting the last 4 months to finishing my Associates degree. Instead of impatiently waiting for the future stronger "me " to arrive - I am loving the here and ...
Looking back , I have lost 100 pounds and looking forward I would like to lose 30 more BUT neither of those things are the here and now and to be honest that is all we have ...is the here and now. This time , this moment , this chance to live and enjoy. It has taken a longer time to regain my physical strength after having surgery and devoting the last 4 months to finishing my Associates degree. Instead of impatiently waiting for the future stronger "me " to arrive - I am loving the here and now me. The here and now me has brought me to this moment in time and I am going to appreciate the body that I am in. This is the body that has completed 4 half marathons, countless 5k's, assisted other friends in training for races, gave birth to 2 children, and drives me to and from work 5 days per week . This body has served me well and I must pay homage to my body instead of looking at myself in disgust for what it is not. Each morning I will stand alone with my body , look at myself and proclaim that I love my body ...it has served me well and I LOVE ME!!

Other Information:
"What is your secret to the weight loss, they all want to know; in a thousand different ways they wanted to know The Secret. And not one of them is ever prepared, truly prepared, to believe that it has nothing so much to do with chemicals , wacky diets and zippy mental tricks as with the most profound and sometimes heartrending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough rubber that comprised the bottom of my training shoes. The more molecules that I remove , the more weight I lose; it is that simple"

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon for your response to my blog about my body fat percentage. I just read it and what you say makes perfect sense! I have no way of knowing what it was before I started getting serious about getting fit. It only shows what it is right now. That is a much better perspective than my woe is me attitude. I haven't really done anything since I got the number, I'm regrouping and will get back to my routine on August 1st. I'm just giving myself some time to relax my mind, body, and spirit. I plan to get my percentage measured again in January. Thanks again!!!

Thanks for the chuckle this morning!! I'm so glad the pinwheel brought back some good memories for you! Something told me you would enjoy that little goodie. And as far as brother man holding the flag, I figure if you gonna celebrate the flag on the fourth of July, you may as well do it right!!! Hope you have a wonderful day today!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning, glad you enjoyed the spa visit. emoticon I have a couple of short races coming up, a couple of 5ks and a 4 mile race. About one a month until the half marathon is September. I understand about going overboard. I did a few days straight after I did the 15K without really giving my body a chance to rest and then I went to a TRX class one day and that was all she wrote. I was so sore and tired and achy, I had no choice but to take a rest day. Yep, we both have to learn when enough is enough! I'm really struggling right now, for some reason, the number on the scale refuses to move. I have been stuck at a plateau for months!! But I'm not going to give up! Have a great weekend!
