Good morning everyone! I'm in a bit of a hurry this morning so sorry no pictures. I just want ed to say that I had another successful evening of exercise and eating right. If the scale doesn't budge much this week it won't be due to nowt doing right in eating but due to not being able to push myself hard like before Izzie joined me. Although I have to say she did AWESOME this morning!! She wasn't being dragged like before. I think by next week she will be ready to run with me. I'm really getting excited about that. Ok bye for now.
Another success evening has passed and another morning of exercise had been completed too. I woke up this morning and looked at izzie and she knew immediately that I was going to take her for the walk and she lower her tail. I told her we are doing this together and we are not going to quit. Well the walk went on like yesterday she huffed and puffed, grunted and panted hard. I have faith that she will thank me one day for doing this with her but right now well lets just say I wouldn't leave in the house alone.
Anyways I have been very successful this week as far as staying within limits and doing the exercise. I feel like I may not have awesome result like I thought just because I'm reduced to walk with Izzie but we'll see.
Here is the pictures of us today.
I feel really pretty here!
This is a picture Izzie (On the right) and her daughter Anna.
I decided to take a pic of Naomi just for consistancy and she looked adorable in her all purple outfit.
Last night I was talking to a friend and I told her how I have had unreliable people to be accountability partners and then we got to about our pets. I told her that every time that I look outside and my dog Izzie I see me. She was once this tiny,spunky, friskie funny, happy dog that got pregnant, packed on the weight and just lays around all the time watching her family enjoy life and stopped living. Everything about us is parallel until now. My poor dog is still living it and I made a connection last night that she can be my accountability partner and I hers.
So this morning I got up like usual and took her with me. THE ENTIRE TIME, so pulled and dragged along, grunted and breathed hard. She absolutely hated it!! I kept telling her it's hard now but eventually we'll go for this walk and it will be easier and easier and you will be pulling me.
Granted I did not make my grand time of 16-17 minutes/ mile it was 19 min/mile. That's a good start and I'm so proud of her. She walked 1.66 miles when she normally hardly moves from her spot.
Here I am for today. Although I didn't get to push myself during my walk/run, I pushed even harder during my strength exercises.
Here are pictures my Izzie. She looks very scruffy right now I have done round too of shaving her down yet. I still think she looks beautiful.
You know this story to me is a good example of not paying attention to blessings right in front of you that you have been asking for. Thank you Lord.
Good Morning Everyone!!!
Today Is my baby boy first day of fourth grade!!! To be successful I had to plan out my morning to have an earlier start. I got up at 6:15am to Dress, eat breakfast snack(BS), setup weights and TV(For music), and drink first half of BS water. Drink 4 glasses of water before walking/ running can lead to some BAD stuff for me. I drink two before and two after. Well after I got back I work my son to have him get ready for school while I finished my exercise routine squats with 15lbs bar, lunges, crunches, and leg lifts.I was SOOOO sweaty by the end.
- I ran for a longer distance while deep breathing.
- My lungs felt on fire while running and I pushed through it anyways!
To work on:
- Posture while running
Here is the me for today. I noticed that the fit in this dress is looser than normal. YAY!
