That little gem of a picture is what is keeping me going right now. I’m at the end of week three of my full-out fitness life and while I feel amazing I feel bigger than ever. This always happens to me when I start a fitness plan. I always feel bigger and not quite comfortable in my skin before things really begin to change. So I’m taking the fact that I’m really not comfortable right now as a good sign.
All I know is that I’m not quitting. If my size doesn’t change at all but my blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol, etc. is getting better, that’s all that matters. My only REAL goal is to live a healthful life and not die like my mother.
I love my new treadmill so much. I’m walk/running 6-7 days a weeks for an hour. Right now I’m at 3.2 mph (walking) but I’m inching up faster every day. My goal is to walk at 4 mph and run at 5. Progress not perfection.
Orientation for triathlon training is on Saturday. I’m still not fully committed to this endeavor since I hate swimming/being wet and I hate biking and I’m not a big fan of running. But I’m going to go and hear what they have to say. I also just learned that I’ll have to miss the mock-tri in April because I’m going to Oklahoma for the birth of my new granddaughter. Not sure how I feel about competing without the practice but again…we’ll see.
On a completely different note, I entered one of my twins into a contest to get a front of the line audition for The Voice in Atlanta, GA on 2/14. Yesterday they called and told us that he made it to the next round (I had already submitted the YouTube video of his portrayal of The Beast in his senior production of Beauty and the Beast). I’m not sure how happy he is that I entered him but he’s very pleased he made it to the next round. If he wins this we’ll be in Atlanta next weekend! I say “we” but that will depend whether or not he wants me with him. Good thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated.
Have a great weekend!
