I had a Superwoman kinda day. We're allowed one of those every once in a while, right? Mind over matter was the name of the game today. I took advantage of the Greenway this morning. It's so hard to go to the gym when the weather is nice and the scenery is so beautiful. It was on the verge of raining all day, but we're suppose to train "in the elements" anyway. So, I pushed forward today on the trail and made it 5 miles! That's a huge milestone for me. The only time in my life that I've actually lost weight was a few years ago and I don't think I ever did more than a couple of miles at a time. Today I surpassed that. In six months I will hit that 60 miles fit, trim, and totally in shape. In only 12 weeks, I've gone from an inactive, tired person with no energy to an almost fit individual full of energy. I feel good. No, I feel great! So, no matter what that scale says at weigh in tomorrow, I will feel good about what I've done this week.

The Journey Continues

It's been a month exactly since my last post. It's been a little tougher the last couple of weeks. I missed a few trips to the gym because of a sick child, traveling, and lack of motivation. I had a .2 gain this week, but am hoping for a big loss next week. It's easy to get discouraged, but I can not give up. I will not give up. I just took pictures and can actually see a difference in the past 8 weeks. I feel myself slipping a little on my eating, so I need to get that back on track. I lost my personal trainer and got a new one to finish out my contract. I didn't care for him as much. Too much conflicting ideals with the other trainer and I just didn't click with him. And, since I'll start my training for the 60-mile walk in May, I've decided not to do any more sessions with a trainer until later. I'm just going to take the routines and information I've learned and work on my own. That's the plan! Here are some pictures, taken exactly 2 months apart. It's motivating to actually see a change. Hopefully in 2 months when I take pictures again, I'll be in new clothes because these are too big. =)
