Over the last three months I have dropped 20 lbs and 4 pant sizes. I just got into my skinny 12s and think that by the end of this year I can be in my size 10s once again!
As the fat layers go, my confidence and joy explode. To think that I have allowed bad choices to back me into this corner of fear and solitude for so long. I have been in denial so long it has numbed me to what I should be like. Now I am emerging slowly but surely into the real me - slender, beautiful, and confident.

The fall days are already starting up here in the far North. Summer seems so brief and transient with only a few weeks of warm weather... kids are gearing up for full time home school, although I have never really stopped their lessons over the summer - doing a couple a day to keep them occupied.
St. Petersburg is a lovely city, but it has terribly long winters. Most of my exercise will be indoors starting in September due to the rain and cold. Our first snows often start the end of September or first week of October. This year I plan to concentrate on developing good eating habits that will bring me to my right weight and keep me there.

I realize that I can really enjoy weight loss especially when I am motivated to work out. After a good hard workout with sweat dripping off my face and my muscles tired and loose, I feel so much better for the rest of the day. My mood is lighter, my body feels great and I am proud of myself that I stuck it out.
Most days I am able to get in 45 to 55 minutes of cardio/strength. I leave Sunday as my rest day, but try to get in no less than 5 days a week.
And eating healthy. Boy do I feel better when I put the right stuff in my mouth. No more headaches, bloated feelings, guilt feelings... why do I ever eat junk! It doesn't even taste that good!.

OK so I have no idea which day it is for P90x, will have to figure it out later. I do know that I exercised daily while traveling, except for flight days, and I used bands instead of my weights for obvious reasons. Worked my muscles a bit differently. I am starting my 4th week of P90 as well as my 4th week of Prism. I decided it would be good to start them together as a way to keep track.
I ate well during my trip, kept to high protein lower, but complex carbs and lost 2 lbs during my sojourn. This to me is a major victory as I have always in the past gained weight due to eating out. Now that I am home I am getting more rest and will be more consistent in charting what I eat.
