Seven Years of Neglecting My Body

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

It's not surprising how 7 years of neglect left my body obese. But its time to celebrate now. I'm celebrating because I have lost a total of 40 lbs since May of this year. Even though its been up and down 5-10 lbs over the last couple months, I am doing a maintenance dance this time - something I've never done before.

With the help of my SparkBuds, I have refocused my attention on my exercise and living by the 80/20 rule. I started Jillian's 30 day shred a month or so ago, and quit after about 6 days. But I started back up, and I'm glad to say tomorrow I'll be on Day 8.

What IS surprising to me is how after 7 years of complete neglect, I'm seeing results after only 7 days of shredding. I'm so happy my body remembers how to build muscle and show definition!

That said, I want to re-state my vision: My body WILL be unrecognizable by my 48th birthday, May 4th, 2011! How could it NOT!???
