Renewed Fire

Monday, June 30, 2014

After my discovery last night I was able to set myself free yet again. I feel the fire and drive I was feeling. So....I decided to chance getting back on my elliptical bike. I was able to do it without hanging on so I am off and at it again. I didn't realize how much I missed it. Hiking, walking, dancing, and cleaning are all a good change of pace and will continue to do them. But my bike, that is a true passion in me.
I have 3-5 pounds I REALLY want to get rid of and I have about 3 weeks to accomplish this. This will put me below! 200 pounds. I am at 202 still. And that is fine with me no matter how long it takes me to get to where I need to be, but I really wanted to meet the goal of being at or below 200 lbs by my doctor appointment. To prove to him and myself that I am really putting in the effort to improve my health. I need to get to 196.7 lbs to have lost 10 % of my weight. I am so close. I know I can do it, I know I will do it! I am on the right track, doing the right things, eating the right way, drinking the right way, resting the right way. Putting my all back into it. I may not reach 196.7 lbs, but if I can get to 200 lbs I will be happy for the moment. I will take any progress I get and be happy with it! If I get to 200 lbs, I will have been lower than I have been in so many years. So that is a win for this moment in my life. And I am 2 pounds shy of that. So I think that getting below 200 is do-able by the end of July.
I want health...good health. And I wont quit until I reach that. 200 lbs is a long way from that for myself, but it is a good check point to stop and be happy about.
Today I did 10 miles on my "inside" bike. To start July and to lift my confidence, tomorrow I want a new personal best...my last was 22.26 miles. I really want 23 tomorrow, even if it takes longer than I typically exercise. I need to move forward! For ME! emoticon
