I am so excited to say that I have finally dropped my first ten pounds. I have set a new goal for another 10 by birthday in February. What I really am excited about, even more than losing weight, is that I stuck with this for a full seven weeks and never gave up on myself. I am doing things that I never thought I'd be doing.

Today, I was lying in bed and thought to myself that I needed to get some strength training in today. I have not done any since last Sunday, and I am ready to add an extra day this week. I thought so many things. I said that I could just wait until tomorrow. Then I said I have not taken a break from working out, and this should be the day. After that, I said honestly, "I just do not want to do this today." All that crazy talk! Finally, I reminded myself that I love the way I see myself after a good strength workout and the fact that I just won't feel great if I don't do it. I DID IT! An hour and 16 minutes later, I feel like I can conquer the tasks that face me.

I worked out for 76 minutes, and it didn't feel like it. I mixed it up with some cardio between sets. So, I got some cardio in too. I find exercise to be something that is now a part of my life. I just love the way it makes me feel. I had a bit of a bad weekend. Personal problems that made me feel blah! But things are seeming much more tolerable now. I am in my eighth week, and I live on this program day to day, but I am excited to see what the next seven weeks will bring. Maybe another 10 lbs? We'll see. Though it would be nice, I am really excited to see an even healthier and more confident me.
