Going Down

 

The number on the scale just keeps going down!  I’m liking that!! Two more pounds gone this week!  Of course, I wish it was faster.  I just want it all off and for it to be May 21st! ha!

How’s It Going?

I’m still in the first month of my new diet, so it’s not hard yet.  I’m still enjoying all the food.  I feel great.  I have some days when I’m tired, but for the most part I have plenty of energy.  I am staying focused.  I have my eye on the prize.  I am sore A LOT! Monday afternoon I did NOT feel like going downstairs and doing shoulders;  then I thought of all the competitors that are full time workers and Moms and how at the end of the day I’m sure they are wiped out but they still have to drag themselves to the gym because it’s the only time they have to do it! So, I got my fanny downstairs and lifted weights! No excuses!  I can be too tired on May 22nd!

Another thing I am happy about is that I am in the week leading up to my cycle and I haven’t had ONE craving.  I think all this good food I’m eating is giving my body everything it needs.  It’s crazy.  I am usually aching for some chocolate or ice cream, but nothing. It is wonderful.

I am very critical of my body right now, because I know what I NEED to look like by May so I can not appreciate what I look like in regular life right now.  It feels good to hear from Justin and the girls at the warehouse that I am looking thinner and looking good! I’m getting there.

Trust the process!

Workouts

It feels so good to be able to run outside.  My legs are still trying to get used to it though.  They are very tired at night and have a hard time relaxing.  I am thinking it is due to the daily 3 mile run I have jumped back into.
