D39 Looking Forward To The Gym

I'm so excited tomorrow is Monday and I get to go to the gym!! :-D I have been looking forward to it since Thursday, LOL! I worked out Friday and Saturday and rested today but I'm looking forward to lifting weights again tomorrow. I'm really, really enjoying it!

I feel like I'm really making some great progress and I swear I can see the changes happening in my body. I took measurements in September and my trainer said it's best to take them every 3 months so I'm waiting til December but I want to take them NOW!!!

It's like when you have one day of REALLY good eating and you want to weigh yourself because you feel like you MUST have dropped 5 pounds already. LOL I need to be patient and just enjoy feeling good :) So that's what I'm going to do.

Tomorrow is legs and push day so I'm doing squats, lunges, adductor and abductor machine, shoulder presses, triceps, and chest; Tuesday I'll do pull and abs with my trainer :) Tomorrow I'm going to use the elliptical for 30 minutes after weights, Tuesday is spin and Wednesday I'm going to run :)

I haven't started actually training for my triathlon yet but I'm putting everything into motion. I need to do some research and find myself a good bike and as soon as I know the schedule for Master Swim I'll be signing up for that too. For now I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing but Tuesday I'll probably spend some time researching bikes and trying to find one that's not going to cost me an arm and a leg!! Fingers crossed that's possible...

I Fell In Love Today

I fell in love today. It was the craziest feeling and one of the most amazing moments in my 29 years of life. I will never forget the day I stood in the Target dressing room looking at her. Admiring her. Seeing her strength and beauty despite her flaws...maybe even because of them. She was stunning. Absolutely radiant and proud. She was beautiful outside but not because she had a toned stomach, tanned flawless skin and a thigh gap; she was a different kind of beautiful. She was genuinely beautiful. I stood there staring at her and admiring her and I felt myself smiling; caught off guard by how I was feeling! Almost a little ashamed that she caught my admiring eye. But she didn't reject my admiration; instead she smiled back at me and before I knew it I was crying.

Time was suspended as I stood there weeping softly, hot tears rolling down my cheeks but I didn't feel embarrassed in her presence. I was overcome with emotion but shame was not one. With her standing there I I felt s…

Falling In Love Again

At Weight Watchers this week we were talking about being kind to yourself. I was asked when it was I decided to stop beating beating myself up and I started to cry the moment I said “it all started with a bikini”.
You can read that story here if you want to be caught up. 
I instantly felt my face flush as I realized I wasn’t going to be able to keep talking without tears rolling down my cheeks and I paused for a moment to look around the room. Was what I was about to do career suicide? What would my boss think if she walked into the meeting room and witnessed the leader having an emotional breakdown? 
My job as a leader is to facilitate a conversation among members, to create an environment where each and every person who walks through the door feels safe and supported and to ensure that each week members leave feeling like they got a figurative hug with a side of science.
It’s great to be warm and fuzzy and I love that Weight Watchers has moved past the days of a leader lecturing for 45 …

I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday and this article popped up on my news feed. I've been running for a while now and I figured it would probably have information I already knew because I know it all...obviously! But I clicked on it anyways, why not!?

And I'm so happy I did! I actually found it funny and I appreciated the reminders because even though I knew things before I read it I wasn't applying them to my runs...but as I read I realized how much this article was a metaphor for other aspects of my weight loss journey! I can apply these tips to more than running, and heres how:

1. Get your chin down! Keep your jaw relaxed. Being aware of tension in my body is super important for me and it's especially important I'm aware of tension in my jaw. I get stressed, I clench my teeth and what happens next? I'm STARVING. Why? Because I'm tense and anxious, I'm not actually in need of food! If I can catch the clench and get to the bottom of what's cau…
