So many exciting things are happening this weekend!

Crossed that threshold to less than 100 pounds to lose! Granted I have 99lbs but it's not a three digit number! My chest measurement is now below 40! My numbers are getting better and better!

I'm feeling more fit and spry! I have a cold and I'm not laid out in bed feeling like death! Which is a huge thing for me. I'm up with my kids contemplating getting more house work done. Excited for their naps because I can squeeze in my ab work out before starting dinner.

I'm trying a few new things this weekend. I'm switching up my routine. Working out is going to start at 4 am instead of 10 at night. My night time routine is starting at 7:00 pm so I can get 8 hours of sleep. I'm feeling so much better and very excited to get back to a regular workout routine. I'm adding in a 3.1 treadmill run back to my workout schedule for my core days. That's at least 6 days of cardio even if it's only walking those 3.1 miles on "rest" days.

I'm restarting some habits I haven't been paying as much attention to. I'm making sure I'm hydrated every day. Drinking a glass of water before every meal, right after I wake up and keeping hydrated while working out. I'm adding my multivitamins back into the mix. I'm making sure I get fully dressed every day. No more days in sweats or pajamas.

I'm excited my tangible goal for February is totally within my grasp. I'm 1 inch away around my chest from wearing a victoria secret bra! How exciting. :D

One last little piece of awesome news! I quit biting my nails. A lifetime habit is finally beaten. If I can accomplish all of this anyone can. I know it. If you are sitting there reading this thinking, "There is no way I can do that." I have news for you. YOU CAN! It takes hard work, it takes dedication but I know you can do it. I BELIEVE IN YOU! Even though I've never met you, even though we may be miles apart, I know you can achieve whatever you set your heart to! I will cheer for you. I will be here if you need me. YOU CAN DO IT!

Thanks everyone for continually offering me your encouragement. It's not as hard today as it was when I started but each day holds new challenges. My goals are being met and before I know it I'll be writing new ones! 2013 is the year to get healthy. It's the year to make those lifestyle choices that will make you the person you've always wanted to be.
