I was so excited when I woke up this morning. I had a great breakfast, logged on and entered my food, wrote on my blog, tracked my goals and then went to exercise. I put on an old exercise outfit I hadn't worn in years. I felt good. Then I walked past a full length mirror! I was horrified! What was I thinking wearing this? Look at the fat that you could see. My thighs were rubbing together! OMGosh! My mood plummeted. I didn't want to exercise. I should just go drink some tea and cry. Then I heard a new voice. One I am not completely used to yet. It screamed NO! Go back to that mirror and really look at yourself. To which I grudgingly did. Four weeks ago I would not have been able to fit into this outfit let alone consider exercising in it. I looked at me. Really looked. I love what I saw. Not this hideous blob of a few moments ago but a beautiful person who cares enough about herself to get into shape, lose weight and begin changing her life. I have lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks! I have lost 10 inches off my body! I am amazing! That belly and those thighs I was worried about? I have lost so much weight and inches off them. I am proud of what I accomplished. I am worth it. So I ignored that nasty little voice and exercised my butt off. I warmed up, exercised for 28 minutes, and cooled down. Take that inner voice!! Today- I won and I feel great!
