The new me!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Wow, it's amazing the difference a few months can make. I'm just kind of rock'n and roll'n. Seems that I've kicked my emotional eating habits. I wont' say I am 100% over it, but I definitely have more control. I'm officially down 25lbs! My muscles are defined and toned. I still have work to do, but I love my body! I love that I can now do arm dips, and even push ups.

I worked out with a trainer a few weeks ago. He had me do a tabata workout - 20/10 interval workout - 20 sec. High intensity; 10 sec rest. I did it! Even the trainer said he was impressed. He had younger guys quit earlier then I did. At the end, as a cool down...(HAHA)...he made me do 3 sets of 30sec planks. I was able to do 2, and then collapsed during the 3rd. I hated and loved every minute of it. I'm sure that 3 months ago, I wouldn't have made it through even part of the workout.

I'm actually happy with me and my body! I love looking in the mirror and seeing my curves. I love seeing the muscle definition in my legs and arms. I love that people are noticing me. The best part? I'm me! I'm the me I've always known was there, but hid behind layers of fat and sadness.

I still have a long way to go, but I feel AWESOME! Yay!
