What's working

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Today I feel strong, healthy, beautiful and accomplished.

I headed for the gym for my usual ST session. I couldn't foresee then that I would have one of the best sessions yet. I've progressed from 5 to 7 to 8 to 10 lbs hand weights. I insisted that we move from 12 reps to 20 too. If we think we can't we must try, that is our motto. If today we couldn't maybe it will be next time. My workout friend is fantastic. We don't compete with each other but push each other to do our best. Our end games are the same ... be better today than we were yesterday.

I left the gym sweaty and smiling. It was wonderful! Tomorrow we'll do it again.

We have come up with a plan that once a month we'll head out to a new location. Take an adventure so we don't get board and will have something to look forward too. This month, we are using guest passes to a different, high end gym. In March we are traveling overnight to participate in a 5K. April we are doing a three day workout with new equipment, in a new gym with a new trainer. Our end goal, Rock Climbing!

In other news, I've been putting my new tools in place to control my out of control eating. It has worked. Somedays it's harder than others but I'm determined to retrain my brain and body. A learned behavior CAN be unlearned.

I'm feeling better.

    Great news! I wish I could dredge up a weight lifting buddy, I really enjoy those sessions w/trainer when he pushes me past my comfort limit. (last week, since I requested upper body, he had me do 2 circuits on our 10 machines, 1 solid min on each! Doesn't sound that hard, but try it! I think we are used to knocking out 12 - 15 reps in 25 or 30 sec...
