Seriously Committed!

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

While i was working out today... I pondered this...It seems to me this healthy fitness journey at times has been too long and not as I had planned. I started out with much gumption! And so eager to kick my own butt! Well I did good, lost some weight, then not so good, got some encouraging words from my best friend. Then my weight loss slowed, and I did as well. Then tried to just focus on eating well. That started to work! Then after a few weeks, decided to put in a little cardio. That was working! Pounds started coming off. Then hit a standstill again, workouts slowed. Then after Thanksgiving I picked back up. So here i am, looking at my sparkpage yesterday. And I look at the page where it says My goals, it says I plan to be down to 184 by 12/30/10. REALLY!? I only have 11 lbs to go?! LOL I may just hit a goal by the end of the year!!!! YES! With only 4 weigh ins to go, I KNOW I can do it! I am seriously committed!!

For the first time, I wrote down a schedule of workouts and alternatives for when I can't get to the gym. I have also got back to tracking food and exercise so that i can see what I am doing. I love this site for that! And its free! So yeaah I am felling FREAKING FANTASTIC!!

So while I was on the elliptical today I was thinking this " I may slow down, but I will NEVER quit"! I will workout the rest of my life to feel this good! To have energy, to live proud, to be healthy!!! I am doing this!
