Finished Lean Phase!

Thursday, December 30, 2010

I finished three months of Chalean Extreme today and I feel great. I saw a picture of myself from June and I couldn't believe I looked the way I did. I looked uncomfortable in my own body, and sad.

Now, while still 30 lbs. away from goal, I feel strong and fit from all the ST and Turbofire I have been doing, and I look dramatically different. Only 12 lbs. lost, but I no longer look pregnant, my body's reshaping and my waist is coming back. I've got a long way to go, but I feel great that I am on the journey, and every day I get stronger, fitter and healthier.

I still sometimes eat too much of healthy food, and sometimes sneak in a treat here and there, but I keep the larger goal in front of me at all times: I want to be healthy for life. By the time I hit 40 this summer, I want to be fitter and thinner than I've been in 15 years.

The other day I went walking with a friend, and we ran through the 2.5" snow drifts in Riverside Park. I wouldn't have done it last winter...

Next week: Lean for Life Phase, here I come.

    We have about the same amount of weigh to lose. I have CE but didn't like it much, however, I will incorporate 1 day a week of it in my rotation. It is just too strenuous for me.

    You are doing great and don't worry about the scale weight because it all counts, inches and pounds... As long as my clothes end up hanging off of me, resulting in me buying smaller ones, forget about that scale emoticon emoticon ...
