I know I post here alot but I feel like I'm always celebrating lately. My birthday was on the 6th and I let myself go on it and the 7th in celebration...my second family spoiled me, though I chose a healthy side dish and strawberry shortcake as a dessert instead of a more unhealthy cake. I am proud of myself because I remembered the message from one of the SparkRadios that I listened to which was "You are always one choice away from getting back on track," so I planned healthy meals and cooked on the 8th and went hiking on another tough trail on Sunday partially to make up for it and partially because I love hiking. Despite my delayed muscle soreness when I am done with this post I am off to do the Bikini Workout like I committed myself to and I went for a walk this morning with my husband around the block for 10 minutes. I've been measuring my calories and avoiding my pitfall (going out to eat) successfully and I didn't allow two days of celebration to derail me this time despite the fact that in the past I've let it all spiral me out of control.
I cannot begin to describe how strong I feel right now or how proud I am that after almost 3 weeks of working out I don't have to rest as often and don't get as winded going up hills and hiking crazy trails. I'm pushing my husband as well when we work out and giving him a run for his money! I'm hoping the weight comes off now so that it will be easier to hike, not for clothes or self-esteem. I bought a couple of trail books for my state to find new places to hike and my hubby and I decided to make our hikes an every weekend event, which is really exciting for me. I'm loving this!
"Life is all about choices. I can make choices in line with my goals or choices that oppose them, but in the end the choice is mine. I CHOOSE to take an ACTIVE role in my health, for I am the master of my life and have a vision for what I shall become. Every day I work hard to bring this vision into existence. So it is and so it shall be!"
