Things are changing in my body, small things and I notice them at the oddest times. I will be working out and I realize that I never could do this before. I will want to go to the gym simply because it makes me feel better. I will get cranky on the days I don't work out. All these little changes are swirling around in my head and inspiring me to continue.
My last weigh in reflected that I had lost 2 inches from my waist, 1 pound and 1 inch everywhere else. It isn't huge but it is there. But how much stronger my body feels is the real bonus and how I am seriously controlling my PCOS symptoms with exercise just feels so freaking amazing!!!
I am doing it! Me!
The hubs and I took a little weekend getaway last weekend. I planned a nice 2 mile hike to the most amazing limestone cave I have ever seen. But the hike back was uphill, like really uphill with no breaks. I sweated, I hit a wall, I cried a little from the pain radiating from my ankles/legs but in the end I did it. I am learning so much about how far I can physically push myself and when I am getting close to hurting myself. I never understood when people said fitness was mostly mental but I get it now. My brain stops me and tells me I can't do something long before my body actually gives out.
Back to the gym tonight. This fierce 20-30 mph wind is keeping me from biking to work and is making me grumpy but I know a workout will make things all better!!
