Day 583

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Yep that is how long I have kept this fitness streak going. Two hours or more of fitness every single day for 583 days. I am aiming to make it 2 years at least. It feels good to see that number keep growing. My 2 year Sparkversary is next month and I hope to be at my goal weight by that date. I never would have thought it possible when I started this journey almost 2 years ago that I could lose 160 pounds. In fact, when I started I set my goal weight at 225, because that seemed like a possible goal. I have gradually revised that number downward. After I hit 225 pounds I reset it to 173, because that would put within a healthy BMI. But it is now at 160, so that I can say I will have lost 50% of my starting weight. Not that I hang onto what the scale says each week. Now I am more concerned with how far I can run, how much weight I can lift, and what my body fat % says. I use a fancy scale at a local clinic on occasion, and it gives a "body age"... and my most recent reading said 25. My fitness has improved to the point where my physical age and my chronological age don't match anymore, since I am actually 38 years old. Woohoo!

Anyway... more of the same tomorrow on Day 584. Dog walks, ST and probably some time on the rower. Being healthy and fit feels good.

    Awesome! What a great reminder that we can accomplish more than we dream, and by the time we accomplish it, our dreams are different (better!)

    emoticon emoticon Your exercise streak is amazing. I also like that you have used smaller goals, weight goals that is, to get you to where you want to be. It is amazing that you have done all this in less than 2 years. You should be very proud and extremely happy with yourself. WTG Chandra!!!!

    I am so impressed with your strength to keep at this. So I was right. You are really at maintenance and figuring out where your body will say, "This is it! This is where I belong!!" Can you remember ever weighing this amount before? I know I did, but I can't remember it.
