Push for Payoff

One of the most important lessons we end up learning when taking on our respective fitness journeys is just how STRONG we really are. We fight with ourselves, we put ourselves down, we growl, yell and cry in frustration, and sometimes we swear that we're going to give up. But we don't. We keep going, despite all of our negative thoughts. We keeping pushing for the payoff that we know we want and that we know we can reach!

One of the most important lessons we end up learning when taking on our respective fitness journeys is just how STRONG we really are. We fight with ourselves, we put ourselves down, we growl, yell and cry in frustration, and sometimes we swear that we're going to give up. But we don't. We keep going, despite all of our negative thoughts. We keeping pushing for the payoff that we know we want and that we know we can reach!

On my own journey I've learned so much about myself, my strength and what I'm truly capable of. Most importantly, though, I've learned (but occasionally need a reminder) that the changes I'm making are for me and no one else. Your journey needs to be about YOU because you are important. That took me way too long to learn. I am important. I do matter. No one can change my body but me.

As long as we all keep pushing, nothing can stop what we will achieve!

SparkPoints: 18,420

Fitness Minutes: 30,470

My Goals:
My most recent weigh-in had me at 139.7 lbs. For now, my goal is to lose 15 lbs and evaluate how I'm feeling from there.

I'm hoping those last 15 lbs will help me reach my body ideal for myself and help me to flatten stomach!

My Program:
Currently, my program of choice involves doing weight training three days a week, high(er) intensity cardio two days a week and making sure to have a day devoted to stretching!

Personal Information:
I've started a Facebook page in hopes of helping others take care of the one and only body they have and to help keep me accountable for taking care of mine! Please head on over there and have a look :)

Other Information:
When I started my real gung-ho effort at weight loss using Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis program I started a blog outside of SP to help keep me accountable, if only to myself, and to give me a place to get my thoughts down with respect to the program I was doing. I've let it fall by the wayside at this point, but I'm hoping to get back to it and keep it going!

Thanks for your message on my comment section! :-D So great to hear from you! I really am comfortable and confident now, it's insane to think back some months ago and contrast my emotions then and now. It's night and day. I'm glad that some of those major stresses in your life seem to be passing, especially you passing your conversion exam!!! CONGRATS!! :-D I'll have to call you Doctor Kettleburn eventually, lol. Also good on ya for putting your need to eat healthier foods first, your man will thank you, even if it's just as a result of you making the meals for him! He better thank you at least, lol. Take care of yourself, thanks again for catching up with me!

Thanks! It was a 5k Obstacle Course and it was so much fun. I wrote a blog with a bunch of pics in it last week if you want to check that out. My next thing will be a straight 5k and I want to do that in under 30 minutes. I am around 32 minutes right now. A 10k? I don't know about all that. I would definitely like to do more obstacle course type races in the future.

Sounds like you have been busy Mal! Congrats on being an official PhD student! That is great! I know you really worked hard for that and wanted it bad! Im sure once you get things settled that you will be back on track with food and exercise. Have fun seeing the family for Thanksgiving!

Things are going pretty good for me. Keeping busy with work and kids as usual. Did my first 5k race last week and that was a lot of fun! It was really cool to test myself and see how far I have really come!
