So one of my new goals is to find that inner athlete and to start exercising. Yes, I've lost a lot of weight without exercising too much, but I have become a lot more active. I park at the end of the parking lot at stores, I visit the downstairs bathroom at work versus the one 10 ft. away, I walk the dog an extra block and when I have some down time I plop down on the floor and do some push ups and sit ups, and so on. I can produce a long list of positive changes I've made to become successful with my weight loss but exercise has not been an integral part. (hiding underneath my desk in embarrassment, lol). My healthy changes have produced a loss of 1-2 lbs a week, if that. I've been content with gradual change which has contributed to my overall weight loss success. It TRULY has become a lifestyle change! Am I done progressing? NO! I've got 10 more pounds to lose and a long list of improvements that I can make. I am gonna knock one thing off my list at a time. No time restraints, JUST DO IT!
I'm excited to announce that my exercise goal is well underway! GUESS WHAT?! My great friend, Sparkbuddy and coworker THATS_LOVELY101, (who started me w/ SparkPeople,) has asked me to be her work out buddy! Actually we're gonna be "Shred Buddies" and do the 30 day shred together! I'm excited that this may bring me to my goal weight! PLUS, it's going to give me a big kick in the butt with my exercise regime which I need!
I'm so ready to do this...I know I can and I WILL!
