Today is AMAZING! It is 8 AM here and I have just worked out for a total of 2 hours SO FAR! My workout this morning has consisted of 3 workout videos on here, a dance workout, a core workout
, and a Pilates workout! I FEEL THE BURN and it is GREAT!! I also walked
a mile before. Burning a total of 454 calories!! That is half my weekly on a MONDAY no less!! I had a great energizing breakfast. On top of all of that, it's only 8 AM and I have already drank 4 glasses of water
(which is my daily goal)!!
Also I have not had a soda in so long I can't remember when or what it was!
I have had a serving of fruit today.
Going to go have a yogurt
. Once I take a break I am planning on doing the same (same length, different workouts) this afternoon since it is
and beautiful! This journey started out looking grim in Janurary, I wasn't too inspired with not much support and not know where to start or how to keep it going. As I have started this journey before and it never worked out. I just steady gained weight as I was never truly prepared with all the right tools. SparkPeople has helped me a great deal. I have been able to eat healthier, work out more and track it all so even when I am not seeing progress I won't give up. I can look back at all the calories burned, the workouts I've done that I used to not be able to just 3 months ago, yet it seems like ages. I am no longer a quitter. I am in this for the long haul, to better my health and myself, and for my family. This site has also taught me a lot so far between quizzes, trivia, and articles. With the polls and community boards, I get support and know I am not alone. I can meet people just like me and feel that much better that it's not just me fighting this battle to get healthier. I can read blogs of success and know it's possible, that you just have to keep going even if it looks grim or you fell of the wagon. I have found my inspiration, and my willpower, man is it wonderful. This journey will be a long one, with challenges and road blocks along the way, but I am prepared this time and I can now overcome ANYTHING! I am taking my health and my life into my own hands. I hope to help everyone along the way, weather it be through reading my success and even my failures that I picked myself up from, or just through reading their stories and showing support. We are in this together for the same reason- We had a reality break and want to better our lives. We can and WILL do this
. This path has already become easier with all of your support and encouragement, this site and all the wonderful tools it provides to help yourself, and my wonderful family that is not only my support team but my inspiration. I love them and want to make sure I am around for a long time. I see the finish line
and it looks great. I can already see me 100 LBS lighter, a ton healthier, and just as happy! I also see obstacles up there and I can not wait to be able to overcome them and feel that much better. It's time for change and I'm in charge!
