Finished Lean Phase!
Thursday, December 30, 2010
I finished three months of Chalean Extreme today and I feel great. I saw a picture of myself from June and I couldn't believe I looked the way I did. I looked uncomfortable in my own body, and sad.
Now, while still 30 lbs. away from goal, I feel strong and fit from all the ST and Turbofire I have been doing, and I look dramatically different. Only 12 lbs. lost, but I no longer look pregnant, my body's reshaping and my waist is coming back. I've got a long way to go, but I feel great that I am on the journey, and every day I get stronger, fitter and healthier.
I still sometimes eat too much of healthy food, and sometimes sneak in a treat here and there, but I keep the larger goal in front of me at all times: I want to be healthy for life. By the time I hit 40 this summer, I want to be fitter and thinner than I've been in 15 years.
The other day I went walking with a friend, and we ran through the 2.5" snow drifts in Riverside Park. I wouldn't have done it last winter...
Next week: Lean for Life Phase, here I come.
