I may not be there yet

Friday, March 01, 2013

But I'm closer today than yesterday! This week has been awesome! I'm finally feeling like I'm making progress, and seeing results. I know I am not where I want to be, but each day I'm getting one step closer to that person. I'm in the second week of part 2 of my current 8 week workout. This portion is very demanding, with lots of different exercises, many multi-joint, and I feel it after I work out. It's always a badge of honor to feel that good muscle soreness after working out, I feel accomplished, and even good about my body. I could step up the cardio a little more, but time was an issue this week, so I only did one spin class, and a couple days of cross training. I'll do spin tomorrow after I work my bi's and tri's. This workout calls for three days of cardio for 30 minutes each, so I'll have a little more than that after tomorrow.

I've come a long way since November, and I'm proud of my committment and focus to my healthy habits. I haven't missed a workout day, and my diet is pretty much just habit now. There is always room for improvement, and I am working each day to be better, but I don't feel like a fraud anymore. I was talking a good game, but had not been playing by the healthy rules anymore. I was kidding myself into believing I was still ok, but the truth was, I was slipping further and further away from that healthy, fit woman I had worked so hard to become....but she's definitely making a comeback-this time FOR GOOD!
