Tomorrow is a big day (sort of)...It is the 1st weigh in for me on this Journey. I do not want to put too much emphasis on the the weigh in because...I have a long way to go and this is only the beginning. But...I made it through the 1st week and this weigh in marks that for me...I MADE IT THROUGH THE FIRST WEEK...WOO HOO!!!
Starting something new is so hard for me. I often feel overwhelmed during the "beginning" of anything and I usually medicate with food...which is no longer an option.
Starting today was actually hard in general. Out of the 1st 6 days...so far, this has been the most difficult. I woke up really tired, with a headache and not really all that interested in an early morning workout. HOWEVER, I got up, threw on a lovely wrinkled pair of shorts and my favorite t-shirt and went to the park. I completed one mile ( in not so record time again) and well..quite frankly, felt better. It felt really good to have pushed through the "I don't want to's" and accomplish something positive. It is funny though...this whole daily blogging thing is working like it is supposed to I guess...there was no way I could NOT work out...I knew people would be waiting for a check in today and I did not want to write...Hey...in less than a week I am already not wanting to work out...NO WAY...this is too important. It is worth "feeling the burn" (and boy did I) :)
So far every day of this Journey has been a gift. Something unexpected everyday. Just imagine how fabulous having 365 days of gifts is going to be AND I will be 120 lbs lighter at the end. I am thinking though that I am going to get so much more than just being lighter and healthier...I don't know exactly what that will look like today...but I am excited to see.
Please keep the comments, suggestions, tips, stories...coming. Your words motivate me more than I can express!
Hey....if anybody out there has any good ideas for stretching/strengthening the lower back muscles..please share...my back is not fully cooperating!!!
