Ready for the Week!

Sunday, March 21, 2010

I am on a push to lose 2 pounds by the end of the month. My goal was to lose five pounds in March, 3 down 2 to go. And I know I can do it. I am mixing up my diet a bit and have just made my fitness schedule for the upcoming week. I have fitness scheduled every day of the week!

On another great note, I tried on a pair of jeans yesterday that I have never worn before. I've bought several pair like them "I'll get into them SOME day" LOL. Well yesterday was the day! They are still a bit tight, but soon will fit perfect! Same story with a cute top I bought last spring. Fits perfect now! My friend is making me dinner this weekend and I have an "old" new outfit to wear! I ran into my trainer at the Y and he was very proud of what I have accomplished so far and told me I look a lot different than when I first started coming in!

Did I mention I have 1005 fitness minutes in March? That is UNBELIEVABLE! 6 months ago if you would've told me I'd be working out 5-6 days a week I would've told you you're nuts. I can feel my endurance growing. I live on the 2nd floor, so am up and down the stairs a lot. When I used to get to the top, I would be huffing and puffing. Now when I get to the top, my legs hurt a bit, but I am not as winded as before. I am also coming up on 5 months smoke-free and that adds to it.

All that makes me feel great and am thinking positive more than I have in the past week. I realize the scale is not going down as fast as I want it to, but I am feeling it and others are noticing and that is making me ecstatic!

Hope everyone has a fantastic nutritional and fitness week!

    Enjoyed your blog and sounds like you are doing so well. Proud of you:) I totally agree with the feeling that the scale isn't moving fast enough but I know I sure like the way I feel and fit in my clothes better than before. I think this is why in the past I have given up but being on Spark and seeing others struggle with the same feelings has really helped me. I'm gonna dress shop for my son's wedding this week so I hope that goes well. Have a great week and keep the momentum going:) emoticon
