No symptoms of allergy for the 1st time in 35 years! A weight moving toward normal limits and I feel energetic!

That I have 9 pairs of capris (some practically new, bought at summer clearance last summer) that are MUCH too big. On my way to my favorite consignment shop today!

My wow moment occured a day ago when after a week of beginning my exercise regime after a long absence and pushing myself to exercise every day no matter what excuses I tried to make to avoid it....I found myself getting exicted and looking forward to exercise after work! The old thrill of a good sweat has come back to me!

Last year - I got out some favorite clothes I had saved from 'when I was thin' and they were way too big! The skirt practically fell off :)

Latest wow moment - doing the Jillian Michaels yoga workout and being able to hold the crow position - just for a few seconds but I did it :)

Buying two pair of summer pants on mother's day in a size 10. I have not worn a size 10 in over 20 years!! I was just standing in the dressing room staring at myself. A look of shock on my face. I wanted to run out into the store and tell someone....anyone!!! "Hello, cashier, I'm a size 10 now"!!!

You are what you repeatedly do.

Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.

Every day when I review my nutrition and fitness trackers and realize I'm really doing this-- and on a consistent basis! When I want a double WOW I take a look at my calendar. I had a small wow today when I suddenly realized that three weeks of exercise has noticably improved my posture.

getting back to my 2-a-day workout schedule

I love my morning workouts because they get the day off to a good start. And if something comes up during the day, I've gotten in a workout.

but when my schedule doesn't change, I get in a workout after work too emoticon

My WOW moment is when I complete a fitness activity. Especially when I am in a slump, or my day is so hectic, but I go & do it. Example I thought I would have never walked 4 miles this evening because of the kind of day I had at work & with a family member ( & no not my husband ) that was trying to give me a guilt trip.
