This is my first blog ever, and I'm excited about it.
I plan on using this blog as I go through my journey...my journey along the road to fitness that is. I took the first steps back in May...the first weekend in that month to be exact. We're now approaching the end of September and I am so proud of myself. For the first time in my life, I have stuck with it and have been working out, eating better and keeping track of my progress. I weighed myself over a month ago and was thrilled to share with my family/friends that I had lost 25 lbs total (beginning weight of 183.5.....down to 158.5). My next weigh in this Sunday....I hope to have dropped 10 more lbs. Of course, the scale is not the final answer. I have learned it is also about inches and muscle development as well. But, I am still hoping for those numbers!
This is an uphill climb and I have so much further to go...but I'm grateful for how far I have come. I don't plan on turning back...EVER. I cannot afford to lapse and go back to that dark, unhealthy place. I don't feel like working out most days lately, but I do it. Cardio, weights, walking/jogging, Yoga, Pilates, Tae bo...I require a variety or else I get bored and can't stick to it.
Anyway, I hope you will come along this journey with me. I will share my successes, my failures, good and bad days. I will update you on my progress and ask that you share yours as well. I hope you find something that inspires you as we interact…if you do share it with someone else. I am open to your feedback, your suggestions, motivation and or advice. I am taking myself to the next level, but there is no way I can do it alone. JC walks before me...Jillian Michaels and Billy Blanks are in my ear....and the motivation of family and friends are keeping me going. Join me in making a change for life....join me in this Lifestyle Evolution!
Stay blessed, and know you’re not alone. Great things await you…stop being afraid and…well, do it today!
