Nourishing the Garden Within
Wednesday, March 21, 2007
There have been so many times when I have given up on my weight loss goals. Being out of balance, undisciplined, and unprepared made my ultimate weight loss goal an unobtainable dream . As recently as the past 2 weeks while a sinus infection and chest congestion made working out challenging. I listened to my body and took 2 days off only when I felt really, really crappy but pushed through the other days giving it all I had.
In the past I would have worked out regardless how much my body was telling me to rest and by now I would be sicker and possibly unable and/or unwilling to workout at all. But now, on the downside of this illness, I feel a sense of accomplishment for not giving in to a little discomfort. The feeling of pride was elevated even higher when I weighed myself this morning and had lost 2+ pounds. Now I'm happier than ever and more determined to reach my goals but more than that, for the first time in my life, I'm confident I will!
