The mirror made me do it

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      1 comments

I had just about talked myself out of going to the gym. As I was passing the mirror in the hallway, I took a peek, and I saw more of my collar bones than before. It was all the motivation I needed to get out of the house. I did my C25K run/walk ... Read more

I'm still holding on. Some days are easier than others, but I manage. At least I am free of school for a couple of weeks. The ed of the semester was really stressing me out. I have decided to take one class over the summer, but it doesn't start ... Read more

I can bend over and tie my shoes now. I can sleep through the night. I have so much energy, and most days I am not bothered by depression.I feel stronger. I like what I see when I look in the mirror. My fat rolls on my back are still there, but ... Read more

It's official...no more blood pressure medication! My consistency has paid off. Also, the scale budged in the right direction this morning. It wasn't a full pound, but it moved, and I'll take it. Last night I was looking in the mirror, and I lik... Read more

Received some good news Friday

During Friday's doctor visit I was told my blood pressure is "beautiful". I don't remember how long ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure because it's been so long. But it was good to hear that if I continue going the way I'm going that I... Read more

Wishing my mood gets better

I'm finally over that sluggish bloated feeling. It had me wanting to scream. I couldn't figure out what was causing it. Yesterday after my gym workout, all I could do was lay around. My stomach (or whatever it was) did like me, and I wasn't liki... Read more

I'm not vain...I'm amazed

I cannot walk past a mirror without looking at myself. I try not to do it, but I can't help it. The transformation I see taking place before me is amazing. I've lost one of my faces. I see cute curves beginning to form, and my butt is actually g... Read more

I'm getting stronger

Saturday, April 25, 2015      1 comments

I had to take a fitness test, and I was able to do fifty squats. I could have kept going, but I was stopped at fifty. My upper body is still not as strong as I would like it to be, but it's stronger too. I know as I continue to train that my m... Read more

My daily check-in

Friday, April 24, 2015      2 comments

Another good day. I am feeling a little sore from my workout earlier. My daughter came over and cooked dinner for me. She kept it simple and healthy. I guess she sees all the effort I am putting forth. I'm just thankful for the dinner because al... Read more

Good Day

Today was a good day. Nothing exciting or super fabulous occurred, but it was a good day. I'm tired. I feel like I could sleep for at least twelve hours. I've completed my thirty plus minutes of exercise and I have eaten my meals, so all is good... Read more

It's been a long day. I was happy with my (official) weekly weigh-in. I'm down another 2.2 pounds. I'm glad I got my exercise done early today because this old girl is done. I went to the gym and did a water fitness class, rode the recumbent bik... Read more

All I could say was...WOW

This evening my daughter was scrolling through the pictures on my phone and came across a picture of me that was taken on March 3rd. I still cannot believe the difference. It's amazing what consistency will do. I am so motivated and determined t... Read more

I still can't believe it....I completed 30 minutes non-stop on the elliptical machine

My workout partner was cheering me on. I was so excited. As she was helping me get set up on the machine, she asked me if I was going for another 7 minutes (that's what I did Saturday). I said "No, I gonna try for thirty." And I did it Read more

Now that I have just about gotten in the habit of making healthier food choices, I'm ready to start adding to my selection. I'm beginning to love the things that I used to turn my nose up to. My salad at lunch today consisted of raw veggies tha... Read more
