Motivated by getting stronger.

I'm so glad I embarked on this 30-day plank challenge!! 30dayfitnesschallenges.c

I just jumped right in and didn't even read the whole thing through. Yesterday, I looked all the way to the end of the calendar, and the challenge is to hold a plank for 300 seconds. That's 5 minutes!!! Intimidating, but as I'm going along, maybe it's not so far-fetched. Today is day 9 for me, and the goal is 60 seconds. Today, I did 90, then 95!! Then 60. I think I'm done for today, haha!

For cardio, I put on my walking video yesterday and today, and did the full hour's workout. I am noticing certain moves, and segments of the video are way way easier than they used to be! I find myself pushing harder to keep it challenging. It is such a wonderful feeling!!

So, even if I might drown the day's weight-loss progress by over eating, I am still doing something right. Eating is such a darn struggle for me! I keep binging for no reason at all. It's frustrating, but I will get a handle on it. In the meantime, I'll keep right on pushing myself physically.

    You're doing well with the exercise portion. Something you might want to check out is the big page of links on the At Goal and Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance Team.

    Near the bottom of the page is a section listing resources for issues with binging. Tinajane76 would be a good sparkfriend for you to know, as she's been dealing with this issue for a long time in her life, and she's just had a significant victory over emotional eating during a recent hard patch.

    I'm proud of you for your determination and the progress you have made to date. It's a process, and you'll get there eventually if you just don't quit. Check out the emotional eating resources and see if they are helpful!
