Wow! Cannot believe I am now 62 pounds down and 53 left!

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I think I'm blogging because I have a record of my small accomplishments... so if I ramble it is meant for me :)

Wow! What an adventure.. Never thought I would ever be considered a gym rat, lol... I am at the gym at 6 am when they open, mon/wed/fri I actually do strength training and 20 minutes of cardio, tues/thurs mornings I do 33 minutes of cardio and some crunchies.. then I go back to the gym at 12 (m-f) for 33 more minutes of cardio, I love the elliptical machine... I am getting a FitBit this friday and have a friend who has one, she is 23 and I helped her be more motivated, we are going to compete with each other over trying to get all our steps in and water intake for the day. I'm excited and it should be fun!

Completely changing your whole life is an adventure. Reducing stress, changing my eating habits and exercising daily.... I never thought I would make it this far, it is amazing on how strong and motivated we can be when we see results and put our minds to it.... I still have 53 more to go but I know it is doable because I made the first half of my goal now the next half...

My kids are away at college, I will see them over Thanksgiving. They have not seen me since July 4th, which I was at 234 #s. I am now at 189 and have 17 more days till I see them! They will be so surprised... I'm excited for them to see me...

Thanks for listening or reading....
