Where Am I Going (With Pictures)

Monday, September 17, 2012

I often ask myself in this question. Especially when Iím in the car because I tend to be directionally challenged. However, Iíve asked myself this about life as well. So, now I guess I need to answer it. I am going towards the weight loss finish line. Arenít we all?

However, I am finding that you have to remember where you started to figure out where that finish line will be. I still am not at all sure of the exact number on the scale I would like to achieve. I guess over the next 12 weeks I would like to come close to figuring that exact number out. However, in the short term I would like to lose 11.8 lbs. That seems fair. Since (iĎve already lost over 140, whatís another 11)

I start my journey about 20 months ago and I could barely walk for 30 minutes and stairs were my nemesis. I know workout 5-6 days a week, do mud races and run half marathons. I am so not the girl I used to be. I am not even the fit girl I once was. I have surpassed everything I used to be.

I used to think I would be happy in a 10, ecstatic in an 8 and would give anything for a 6. I now own a pair of pants that are a 4. Who knew? I still have work. That sounds so odd to me considering how far Iíve come. But I do. When you lose so much there is a ton of toning and just a ton more you want to accomplish, however, now I know that I can. There is no more Iíll start tomorrow.. Itís all about what more can I do today.

In the next twelve weeks, I will train for a half marathon by running 3 days a week, continue with my turbo fire, track everything I put in my mouth and increase my water to 100 oz instead of 80 (this is going to be tough). I will also celebrate all the milestones and will reflect back on where I have come from and where I will be going.

today I'll post today's picture as soon as I can get it off my stupid phone :)

    You are a true role model Chelle. Thank you for that. You look marvelous. What is your reason behind more water intake? I am sure you know too much water could leach minerals out of your system?

    You are a complete inspiration, Chelle, and you look beautiful.

I have just one question about your blog - why do you want to increase your water to 100 oz a day? From everything I've read, you do not need to drink more than 80 oz as most of the food we eat also contains water (fruit, vegetables, etc), so you will already be getting a more than an adequate amount.

Just wondering, since we are focusing on nutrition this round.
