Reflection on Fall Challenge Week 1 Blog

Thursday, November 08, 2012

I realized that I was the biggest thing holding me back & have managed to lose 2 lbs in the past 9 weeks. Still not quite to my final goal weight but closer than where I was at the beginning of the challenge. Not only by the decreased number on the scale but by improving my attitude about it. I have come very far & realize this. I am no longer beating myself up about not making the timeline I imposed on myself. It took several years to get where I was before I started this journey; so naturally taking over 1 year to drop it isnít a horrible thing.

I managed to get back into a better routine: making time for my fitness.
Since Daylight Savings Time on this past weekend, I have managed to get up to do my Cardio Minutes before starting my day. I have been doing my ST for Lunch or after work again; which works out perfectly for my family.
I am enjoying the exhilaration felt after working out.

My finances havenít really changed Ė but I didnít see that doing much in 10 weeks & I have managed to decrease some of my worries over it. If I do need to get back on medication for my anxiety it wonít be because I am not trying my hardest. I know that I can always do more than what I am but I am pleased with the change I have made in the past 9 weeks and know that it will just keep on improving.

Just like I am the biggest thing holding me back Ė I am also the biggest thing that will push me forward. And knowing this helps make everything fall back into place.

    Great job! The time change really makes it hard to get outside after work to get cardio done so you're doing good getting it done in the morning. Keep working hard!
