Doing a happy dance!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

I have to start by saying I'm so glad I stretched after my workout tonight, otherwise I'd likely pull something from patting myself on the back. I just did 36 minutes of Leslie Sansone! And I did them all in a row! lol 3 MILES!!!! My legs are on fire, but it feels great! I have a feeling I need to start working on the Wii Fit again. I seem to lean to the left a lot. That side is always way more sore than the other side. Good thing I ate a banana today, or I'd be in for one heck of a charlie horse tonight.

I updated my title page tonight. I thought I'd copy it here:

I'm down 16 lbs and I weigh in again Monday. Hopefully I'll be down some more. I've realized in these last couple of weeks that not only do I have to change the way I eat (and what I eat), I have to completely change the way I LIVE! I can't expect to lose weight and keep it off for good if all I do is follow another diet that I'll end up hating and don't add daily exercise, no matter how much I don't want to do it. This isn't a perfect world where all you have to do is sit on your butt and THINK about exercise and the inches melt off. lol I actually have to MOVE!!! Judging from reading others' pages and posts, I'm assuming that at some point, I'll learn to like exercise. I'm not there yet, but I do have to say, I hate it less than I used to. I don't know what the difference is this time, but I honestly feel that this is it. This is for real this time. Somehow, something in my brain snapped and I FEEL like this is for life now. Every time I've "dieted" before, all I ever did was think about food. It consumed my every waking moment. Its different this time. I can't explain it, but its very exciting! I don't feel obsessed about food this time. Yet another reason I think its for real this time.

Have a great weekend everyone! "See" you tomorrow!

    i can relate to all the things you said, dieting is hard, and working out is too, when we are not use to it.

    Great job! Even greater attitude! I am in the process of learning to maintain positivity in my life. I am naturally a "feeder" I'm told. If I am surrounded by negativity I absorb it and reflect it. Likewise if I intentionally surround myself with positive things, I bounce it back too. I figure then that its up to me to make sure I have the proper energy around me. I read a lot of blogs now and focus on others successes to help me along the way. I use music that makes me happy, and quotes, and anything else I can find right now. It is wonderful to see you focusing on the positive changes and understanding that they are life changes and that you are becoming better not just in body but in spirit and mind. Congratulations on that revelation and thank you for sharing it with us.
