woo hoo!!... for a lack of a better title....

Monday, January 03, 2011

just a little about my past week. I was able to put on a suit coat I havent been able to wear since about 2002. about 3 months ago, i could just get the buttons to touch, now they wrap around my sides, almost too big. i actually am starting to feel good dressed up for a change.. that is worth a woo hoo...



I also managed to push my way through a workout in spite of a chest cold/ wheezing. made it through a 5K and some elliptical time and sent 1100 cals to the promised land

emoticon


THERE IS A WOO HOO IN THIS!!!!


WHEW- that was a tough one!!!


Here is one for you ....success is what you get when you do what you are supposed to do when the woo hoo is all through... Author--ME :)

    You look real good! Shaving years off with this lifestyle change! YEARS!
I would really like you to take it easy though. Rest is just as important for well being as werkout. You know this, I learned it from you - read it here on your blog. That said, I so understand that sometimes a high from doing the work is more important then a little cold. More urgent because if you don't, you'll feel even sicker. I get it. I do it too. I've had 4 days of rest now and I find I have so much more strength! Also forced myself to go running after breakfast and not in the afternoon - only because there are no people cheering me on in the morning. I do my strength and cardio all in the park and it's better if nobody's watching/commenting. emoticon
have a great day emoticon

    Woo Hoo!!!

Reading your blog today was an inspiration because I woke up feeling better than I have felt after being sick and I wanted to exercise so bad, I didnt because I was afraid of all of the coughing, but then I read your blog and it reminded me that I will still live through the coughing if I coughed at all and I am going to do 15 before settling down for the night!!

Also, you look absolutely emoticon
