Progress...What a Surprise!
Sunday, November 07, 2010
**You know SparkPeople really needs a key to allow you to recall a work in progress blog. I lost my blog a minute ago and hope I can recreate it.**
Today I took my full measurements and realized it's been a full year since I did this for the first time.
Usually I take my measurements at least once a month but last week when I took them it was to set my focus to see a change on my scale.
Well, I did it...5 pounds lost this week, plus some change in my measurements.
Last year we had a challenge by our former team leader to lose 8 pounds for the holiday. This time it's because my birthday month is All About Me (to borrow my friend's phrase)!!!!
A few weeks ago I completed my first 1/2 marathon (Rock and Roll LA 1/2 Marathon) in 3 years. This is huge! In my heart I knew it could be done but had doubts as the date approached. Completing this event has renewed my confidence.
Today is Sunday and my focus for the week is exercising daily, eating right and sleeping well. Okay a few other things too, like working, etc.
