What a great week!

Friday, June 18, 2010

This week it has all just finally clicked for me. I am eating the right amount of calories without really having to think about it too much. Exercise has really felt like a part of my routine. I come home from work, chat with the family for about 30 minutes, and off I go to do my workout. The treadmill has seemed a lot easier for me this week even though I have stepped it up quite a bit. I ran at 4 mph for 5 minutes straight. I have not been able to do that since, wow, I don't even know if I've ever been able to do that! I ran at 5 mph for 1 minute without getting out of breath.

I finally got back out of the 200's this week. This time it will be for good! My pants are falling off my butt, but I can't fit in the next size down yet. That's a bummer, but maybe next week I will be able to. My shirts are a lot looser. The shirt that I wore today was baggy. I wouldn't wear it last month because it was too tight. That is just so unbelievable to me!

I can really see the changes in my face now. I am also starting to see changes in my stomach (finally) and my inner thighs. (ugh!) It is really strange, but I feel a little bit taller since I have been losing weight. Maybe it is just because I am standing up straighter because I have some muscle now. Being 5'2", maybe it's just wishful thinking.

A big thank you to all my Spark friends that keep me motivated and cheer me on. A humongous thanks to my little sis, Back2Teri, for lighting the spark back under my behind. I will finish this journey and be the healthiest Mom and Nana that I can be.

STAY SPARKY!!! emoticon
