Don't limit yourself!

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Yesterday almost turned out to be a bad day for me. I wanted to cheat so bad. I talked to my sister and we were talking about going to the store to get some snacks. Then she stopped us and said NO. We can't do it! So we didn't. I had to go to the store but I actually stayed away from the bakery because I knew if I walked over there I was going to buy something. I got home and my sister said we are going to the gym today. I did not want to go because I just was not feeling good yesterday. But I went anyways. We ended up working out for 75 minutes!! On our way home from the gym we were talking about how we just pushed ourselves further then we ever have before. We were talking about how there are no excuses...we should be able to do the full 4 miles on our walking off the pounds DVD.

So today.. I said I am going to do the DVD. I am going to do the full 45 min. I started cleaning my house, ate lunch and then said well...if I am going to do it I need to do it now because I could start to feel my energy slowing down. So I put the DVD in. I started my first mile and I was thinking..well..maybe I will only do 2 miles. Then my ankle started to hurt...this same ankle has hurt me the past 3 days now but I decided I am not letting it slow me down! So I got to mile 3!! If you get to mile 3 on my DVD...you might as well just keep going because Mile 4 is pretty much cool down. So..I did it!! I finished all 4 miles and I burned 630 calories in 45 min!! (I love my body bugg) I have to tell all of you...when I first started this a year and a half ago..I could barely finish the first mile of this DVD. I remember I kept saying I am dying..but I wish now that I would have pushed myself back then..I wish I would have shown myself what I am capable of doing! Now a year and a half later.. I have gained almost all of the weight I had lost and I am just as unhealthy and out of shape that I was then but I pushed myself and I did all 4 miles. In my 2nd week of this journey I did all 4 miles!! I weighed in today at 305.2 lbs...and I did all 4 miles!! You can do this! DON'T limit yourself! Whatever you think you can do..you can go further! And guess what?? I didn't die! I am so excited to see where this journey is going to take us this time and I know that we are going to stick with it!!

Don't forget to push yourself today!! YOU CAN DO THIS...One step at a time!

    Big kuddos to sis for standing strong & encouraging you to stand strong too! Not only did you resist the bakery, but you pushed through a tough workout too. Woot!

    I pushed myself too with the Walk Away the Pounds DVD....I only made it 15 minutes and .75 miles but that's a big achievement for me! I'm glad to see that you're pushing yourself and not letting anything get you down! Good idea about staying away from the bakery! Lol I always hear that you should shop the outside of the grocery store...but what they forget is that the bakery and deli are on the outsides! LOL I don't know why I just could imagine somebody cheating cause they'll say oh it's on the outside perimeter. Good job resisting temptation and keep up the excellent work!! You go girly and your sister too! God bless!
