A year in review

Monday, May 14, 2012

May 7, 2011 I was fed up enough with myself to dive into SP with honesty. That was the best thing I did.

My goal was to lose 25 lbs. It has been one year since that time and I don't regret a thing.

I did not lose 25 lbs but I HAVE lost 19. emoticon

I am stronger and more toned that I was. emoticon

I have more endurance. I can complete my 30 minute class without feeling like I will never walk again or gasping for breath.

I need cardio and strength training. I also like yoga. emoticon

I always said "I'm not a runner" but now I'm adding it and I am trying to become a runner. It's taking some time but I'm working on it.

I eat better than I did and have tried some good recipes that are lower in calories. And they were good!

I can indulge in that treat. I cannot indulge in that treat every day or 2 times a day. emoticon emoticon

I'm healthier and happier than I was a little over a year ago. Even though I can't shake this last 6 lbs, I do not feel that it is the end of the world. If I keep doing what I am doing, I will maintain. If I tighten down a little more on my eating (which isn't as good as it was) and add another 30 minutes or so working out during the day, I will lose those last few pounds.

If I don't, I shouldn't complain. I wear smaller clothes, I breathe better, my muscles are more defined, I'm strong and best of all, I'm happier!
