I’m still a looser in many ways

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

As most of you know I have been struggling with my program for the last few weeks. I’ve gained about 10 pounds cumulative since November; however, I rediscovered my fire and restarted P90X last week and have been hitting play daily until I got a pinched nerve in my lower back right side. I can feel a slight pain radiating down my right thigh which makes certain movements painful. Not sure what to do about that. I tried doing YogaX thinking it would stretch out but it only aggravated it. So now that’s on hold once again. I continue to walk a mile every day and I’m a lot more conscious about what I’m putting in my mouth. So I’m loosing the mentality of “if I can’t do P90X then I won’t do anything at all”. I will do whatever I can until I recover. I have lost the negative thinking of “once again I’m a failure” and replaced those thoughts with “I’m a work in progress, this is a lifestyle change and everyday counts”. I have lost the fear of stepping out of my comfort zone and was just appointed as the new Children’s Director for my church. Once I took that step everything came together. I have selected an awesome program and the kids are excited about coming to Sunday school. I have lost debt! Yes, I said debt. I’m a Dave Ramsey fan. I follow his financial concept and have lost over $14,000 of debt in the last 4 month. This month I will loss a student loan and next month a tax bill. So as you can see I have lost a lot and best of all I not only gained 10 pounds (boo) but I have gained confidence and will power but also financial and emotional peace. I know as I continue to loose in other areas of my life my body will be sure to follow.

    On the 10lbs, I know how discouraging it is. I gained 12lbs when I quit smoking. I was starting to wonder if I was just going to regain it all, but I put the brakes on and you are too. I have relost that weight now & learned another valuable lesson about perserverance. I know how far you've already come & I know you continue to make the healthy choices.
