Tomorrow will make 12 weeks I've been on spark. Losing weight really is a journey from the inside out. I watched the Biggest Loser and I think I've got a little bit of Michael in me. I'm working hard and I'm making progress as quickly as my body will allow, but I'm so frustrated by some of the things I still can't do. I have horrible knee problems, so spinning is a great work-out for me. I'd love to be able to do Hip Hop or Turbo, but every time I do, I pay for it dearly. I tried Hip Hop again on Tuesday. My knee lasted for about 35 minutes and I've been paying for it ever since. It's so hard when your mind and heart is willing, but your body (through no fault of your own) is just not able. I've discovered I'm a little competitive. Not necessarily with anyone else, but with myself. I push myself hard and sometimes I have to remember that as much as I want to be able to do it all, I just can't. That is a sobering reality.
I do feel so blessed. I have so much support here on spark and in my life where I live. People have been so supportive...even my little ladies that I deliver meals too. They are so excited for my progress. I was paid a nice compliment at spinning tonight. After the class the instructor came over and said to me that she could see how much smaller my legs are getting and she can see the definition in my legs. She said I have spinner legs!!!! You really do build certain muscles doing the spinning and I could see it and feel it but I didn't think anyone else really could. Now if I could just get my belly to shrink as quickly as my legs all would be right in the world. Any helpful tips? I'm open to suggestions.
I'm at it late again, so I should really get off of here. Sleep is crucial to success! I still have some blogs to read and I will, but it will probably be tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the day that I am completely caught up! Wouldn't that be great? I just don't have enough time to do everything I want to do. I do love getting the feedback on my blogs, so thank you so much for that. I was trying to get caught up earlier today just a little and I'm so far behind I think it would probably be easier to just beg for forgiveness and wipe the slate clean and start fresh all over again with this blog. Again, thanks for all of the support and encouragement! I truly do have the best people in the world watching my back!!! You all totally rock!!! Have a great Thursday!!!
