First off, wowza am I out of shape, I knew I had backpedaled way back but wow just wow! My legs are still a little sore from my leg workout Tuesday, so last night I pushed the upper body and my arms are feeling it tonight, so I decided some cardio was in order. In the interest of expanding horizons and not staying in my crappy little box of comfortability tonight for the first time in eons (I think it's been over a decade) I rode a bike! I really didn't think that I could it's been so long and I have gotten rather large but I did it! I had been wanting a bike for awhile and it's a very nice bike that I saw at a yard sale a week ago and said to myself buy it, so I did. After tonight I do however think that I better load it up and do some riding on flat ground before biking around my hilly streets. I rode about a mile and a half, and man it felt like a REALLY long mile and a half but I did it . So tonight I am going to bed sore almost everywhere and it feels good, both inside and out, as long as I don't move much

Today was my first workout in...well I can't even remember how long it's been, and it felt good. I will not berate myself or look back at where I was. I will start here fresh and new!
I may be doing this alone but that's ok because I am doing this for me, for the real me, the me that is buried so deep that she has to fight just to draw a breathe. The me that so desperately wants out, and I will set her free, both physically and mentally. My demons have been in control for far to long and enough is enough, pack up and get out because I have had enough.

PMP Final numbers.
Let me say I am sorry that I didn't do weekly challenge reports, I would start to write one, decide it sounded stupid/dumb/weak/lazy/ or just plain lame and erase it with the intention of redoing it later then the next week would be almost over and well, then it was over.
I loved this Challenge!!!

As I figured you can't see any change in my pictures but I feel it! I feel stronger, my jeans fit, some of my undies are to loose, and I had to get rid of 1 of my pairs of capris cause the wouldn't stay up anymore :) Even my fingers are a little smaller one of my rings doesn't stay on very well anymore.
