Before & Now and 5k Pics.......

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

So I finished my 31 day challenge and I exercised 31 days straight with no breaks and no off days. I'm very proud of myself and happy that was able to complete all 30 days. I finished my 2nd 5k this past Saturday and I shaved six minutes off my time coming in at 46:11 from 52.04 from my first 5k. I am currently taking the next three days off because my left knee has been hurting for the last three weeks so hopefully the rest will help. I didn't lose a bunch of weight like I thought I would but I did lose some inches. Some days it's hard and some days its easy, but I know it's worth it no matter what the scale says each week. I read somewhere that losing weight is like a marathon that requires consistency and dedication. That's the element everyone leaves out. Seeing results takes hard work and patience, and that there's a complex psychology involved in fighting for something you desperately want, but is so difficult to achieve. And then sticking with it and fighting even when you don't see results. I believe this because some weeks I don't lose and in the beginning it made me want to give up, but inside I knew that even if I didn't see any changes I needed to continue for myself. I needed to say I gave it my best shot, I gave all that I had and since that time has not come yet, I'm going to keep going.

So, I there are two months until the end of the year and my goal is to break into the one hundreds. Wish me luck :-)

    I like it. Your words hit home so hard about the fact that if you don't give it your all, what's the point of doing it? Push on no matter what.

    Congrats on your 5K.
