New Goal for me?

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I started my journey in weight loss what feels like a thousand years ago and only now believe that I will truly succeed. I know that at this stage I am still working off the last gain from 7 yrs ago and when I reach that figure that I was when I last stumbled, it will be like being reborn for me. I am so close right now, I can almost taste it.

My way of eating has changed dramatically and I love it. I feel as if I am cleaning up on the inside. On the outside, I am boot camping and my body is changing. I have become adept at making my meal at midday while still cooking for the family in the evening. I cannot ask my hubby to eat like me since he does not have the same ailments and will fall into a bag of bones because he is naturally extremely trim. But that's okay, its not a hardship to keep me healthy and him healthy in two different ways.

With the inside and outside changes of my body..........
I feel well.
I sleep well.
I have energy.
I am happier.

My sister has had to quit boot camp for financial reasons. I am under a sponsorship so lucky me. But that being said, I came across this youtube clip and it was so inspiring, so guess what my next physical goal will be??

I wont be trying for running marathons, I'm not a natural runner by any means. At the moment I get so out of breath, even feel asthmatic when its time for cardio at boot camp, and often my knee hurts. But as the weight continues to melt away, I see running being an option for me. So maybe my sister gets a running buddy after all.

Its only a goal in my thought process at this stage. Maybe I will take up running when I am at the double figure stage on the scale....that will be in the very very near future.

So excited again, super unsure again. emoticon
I wont be the first or the last person to find running a good form of therapy to life.

My goal and I cant wait to see if I manage or not.

But before that reality, is a much more enjoyable reality set before me. My son has decided to send dh and I off on a long weekend in the near future. Sigh 3 days of being in the country on walks, all alone....what a pleasure. My idea of a sanity gift. emoticon

Hope you are having a good week of GOOD choices to receive GREAT results.
Keep chugging folks, keep chugging.

    CELEST Spark's Couch to 5km programs are so easy, and you can just repeat the week if it was really hard. I'll bet that you will love it.
