Second Day in a Row

Friday, March 29, 2013

emoticon For the second day in a row I pushed myself to get up and do some type of exercise. I may still be in my pj's but I did it! I was out past midnight helping my EMS agency run calls. I haven't been able to that in a long time. It made me feel useful!

I used Coach Nicole again and worked my arms today. After a shoulder injury I have babied my arm way to much and lost a lot of muscle so I am taking it easy to start. Cardio yesterday with some ab work tossed in. My thighs feel a little sore today but not too bad. I have been tracking my food even if I go over my calories.

I am starting to realize I need to find a healthy balance in my life. I love my father dearly but I can't focus all my time on taking care of him and forget about me. Doing that has made me turn to food for comfort.

The last few days I have read some pretty amazing stories about how others have over come weight issues and it inspires me. It gives me hope that I too can achieve success with hard work and determination.

    Good job so far - it's good that you are realizing things need to change. It is not always easy - or ache free - but it is soooooo worth it! You deserve it - and you can not take care of anyone properly if you don't take care of yourself.

    Here's hoping you all the success! Keep up the good work!
