Slow and Steady
I have to keep reminding myself of this. Averaging 1 lb per week does not sit well with me all the time, but over time it really is quite wonderful. I was watching Dr. Oz yesterday and he brought up the fact that those who lose weight slowly, statistically have a better chance at keeping it off. That made me happy. I have to remember that I'm only in a race with myself and the only way I lose is if I quit. I have come to far to quit, so that is not an option. Let's be honest though...sometimes it is hard. There are days I don't want to do anything or I only want to do half of a planned workout. Today was one of those days. I had an hour of cardio scheduled for today. I chose the elliptical. After 10 minutes I was in the zone and feeling great, but at 45 minutes I hit a wall and it took almost everything I had to finish. Life is like that sometimes, but I did finish and I was proud of myself for doing so.
Am I the only person who takes pride in a sweaty body after a workout? It's like my badge of honor. I love it. It makes me feel like I've really done something. A soaking wet t-shirt makes me giddy with joy. It reminds me the pounds and inches are going away, and in the end that's all that matters!
Yeah, I really do have Nsync in my workout playlist...don't judge me lol!
