Well,well,well. The scale went down a pound and a half. Whoopee. I swear I'm gonna put that thing through a wood chipper. Well,it's a start.
I did Denise Austin's Blast Away Ten Pounds kickboxing video and I always have pretty fast results with that one. Then I did the ten minute segment of kickboxing on her mix and match set. That adds up to a 30 minute cardio workout.
I think it moved because I tried to be more careful what I put in my mouth yesterday. When I come home from that rathole I call work,I'm pretty starved. I am only going to let myself have ONE small healthy snack when I get home. Period.
I try to remember how I was when I first came to North Carolina. I had to leave because my baby's *donor* I call him,was on drugs,in jail,and threatened one night to kill us so I moved in with Dad in this goshforsaken state. I remember being bored one day,going through my boxes and finding a kickboxing video by of course,Denise Austin.
I put it in and could only do ten minutes. I was proud of that ten minutes though. I did it every day till one day I made the whole twenty minutes. It took a week and a half and I had lost over six pounds. I was amazed. That started my journey to get fit. And I did. Over a year I lost 35 pounds,was healthy and happy and looked GOOD.
I have to remember back where I started. That drive,that determination. That NEVER EVER GIVE UP attitude I had. There was no doubt in my mind I would make it to 135. None whatsoever. Maybe that had a lot to do with my success back then.
I want that back. M.
