Looking in the mirror and seeing collarbones.
Having to hike up my size 12 jeans and work pants. I have to get some 10's. :)
Being able to trek down two flights of stairs carrying a hamper full of clothes - twice. And sort them by bending over and not getting winded or having your muscles hurt.
Being able to do a hard cardio workout without taking a break (We don't need no stinking break! - Tony Horton)
Having everyone tell you you're shrinking even though you don't feel like it since you're stuck on a horrendous plateau. (But NOT gaining!)
Being able to get into a size Small sweater (it's from Fashion Bug and their sizes run bigger but who cares! It's a small!)
Being able to carry a bushel of apples without any problem.
Seriously thinking about having your sister coach you on starting to run when she starts her new job with the same hours as you so you can go to the gym together all the time. Yes Laurie, that's you. Didn't see that coming did you?
Having to push the car seat forward because your butt isn't as big and doesn't push you away from the seat as much.
Feeling strong just doing normal daily activities like getting up off the floor or out of a chair.
Being able to actually wear a Halloween costume and have it fit and look good.
I know there's more but I needed to remind myself that I've come a long way and if my body decides to stay here for a while - so be it. I have two weeks left of P90X and then I can and will switch it up a bit. Go to tae kwon do more to get ready to test for my next level of black belt in December and start doing some different things. I love the P90X workouts and will definitely incorporate those into my workouts. Celebrate everything you have done so far and keep on going even though you may want to quit or may have a bad day. :)
