Living in the woo hoo!

Thursday, October 01, 2009

I am fully recovered from being sick and went for a session with my trainer and kicked some butt. then came home and ran a mile. my previous time was 15 minutes now its down to 13min 42 sec. I am really excited with whats going on and the changes that are happening even on a daily basis. i guess this is my woo hoo time. there will be more challenges and tough stretches on the future but for now, im living in the woo hoo.

Im really wanting to go for a run today but i know that i need a day to recover. as bad as i want to go, i have found that if i dont rest for a day, the next session with the trainer is not going to be as productive. if i rest, the session is rockin'. i am down to 330 (from 385). thats huge because the last time i tried to lose weight about 9 years ago, i couldnt get past 330 got discouraged and quit. not this time. i am going to sail past 330 like it was no obstacle.

This brings me to another point, for me, it was about 9 years ago i was 330. for me to cross over into 320 land is like turning back the fat clock 9 years. all of those wasted years. think back to the last time you were at a certain weight and rejoice in that you have turned back the clock.

    Yes! I thought I was doing something right by resting my legs for one day between my walks.

    emoticon It's encouraging to know that I'm doing something right.

    Thank you.

    Be proud of yourself! Keep determined to reach your own personal goals. You can do it with hard work. I'm on my way to the gym to run on the treadmill as it's raining outside today. Thanks for inspiring me! WOO HOO!

    Yay!!! That is wonderful! Sounds like you are doing an AWESOME job! Keep up the good work! ;-)

    My best so far is a 17 minute mile (averaged over a 3 mile walk/jog) I look forward to being able to run a mile at or under 15 minutes.

    Woo Hoo to you!
