I am finding in this life style journey that I surprise myself. I have been able to do things I thought I never could. I never thought I'd be able to walk 10 miles and I have done that 2 different times. I never thought I'd give up those m&m's but I have. And to find I like my clean eating life style surprise me the most. I can tell that each day surprises me in what I am able to do. Take today for instance. I was at weight lifting class and I was able to go up 2 1/2 lbs. in doing bicep curl and bicep rows. How cool is that............? Real cool I think. I never thought I'd be able to do 40 lb. squats and lunges either but I can. I am a morning workout person. Now today it rained most all day so I didn't get my morning run in. But I noticed tonight the rain had stopped so I decided to hit the walk track across from my house. I put in 45 minutes. I felt good about getting up and doing that since I was tired as I hadn't slept well last night. I do know I surprise myself in my cravings too. In my past I would just give into those cravings. Well not anymore. For 3 months I have been craving a bacon cheese burger and onion rings. I haven't eaten them yet. I figure that one day I will go have that. I am just not in a HUGH hurry to do that. The craving will still be there and I will be ok. So in closing I am watching out on how I suprise myself tomorrow. It's a new day and a new adventure. I have new ways to surprise myself.
