some of my thoughts 1-22-14

Today I read some blogs from Step Knee b/c she was highlighted for the one called The Secret to Weight Loss. Then I noticed one of her others: Pressure or Support. Well, I certainly feel pressure so I read it. What she said was so true.

I didn't want to stay on her page b/c that would take too much of my time, so I came back to mine and read some of my goals. I came to the one that I easily walked the Komen 5K which made me smile. I smiled because it was indeed a good reminder of something I accomplished - just like SP said it was for... I immediately thought of last night's work out -
Wait - I've been working out for 3 weeks! Each week I've been adding in more days! I'm up to 5 days a week! That was one of my short term goals that I just read over! -
So I'm progressing. I'm reaching some of my goals. And if I can reach some, I can reach all of them. I may need to re-evaluate and change some dates... but I CAN reach them. It's cool to come that realization! I'm so happy with myself right now.

Anyway back to last night's work out - I've done some DVD work outs in the past but stopped those b/c of space limitations. Instead I've been going to classes and to my work - work out room. Last night however, I couldn't go to class b/c of some time restraints. I was going to my room to put in a workout DVD when my kids said to use living room b/c there is more space. First I thought how sweet of them - they are at the ages that they think little of other people and more about themselves... so I took them up on their offer and thanked them for thinking of me and my new needs; and of course a big hug.

While I was doing the workout, I realized that I was doing those exercises w/o needing to modify like in the past. I was ecstatic - it's paying off. I can't see it on the scale, but my muscles are certainly getting stronger. Stronger muscles means better metabolism. Better metabolism, the easier it is to loose weight.

So... now all I need to do is to seriously start looking at food choices and my amounts instead of "guessing."

Wahoo me!

    That is fabulous! I am sooooo proud of you :)
    Isn't it a wonderful feeling to realize you're reached some of your goals - but even better, not needing to modify your workouts any more?! That really is an accomplishment. I'm glad you realize it & are excited. That's a sure fire way to keep the exercise momentum going! You rock, chickie!
