I stand before you today, humbled and deeply moved by the support I have received. Only yesterday I posted my blog on facebook and today I have had 98 views to date. The comments and emails I have received have touched me more than I can ever explain.
I feel stronger, knowing I have this wave of support behind me to help carry me forward. I could not do this alone, I would not be here without you.
Last night I hopped on the bike.. it was 10pm, I really didn’t want to. But I did.. want to know why? Because I said I would and I try as hard as I can to stick to my word. So I got on and went until my legs felt like Jell-o.. which mind you wasn’t all that long of a ride. Mike came down to keep me company and handed me a medicine ball which I did some arm toning excersizes with. Tonight we plan to bring my exercise ball downstairs and start a mini circuit to see if I can last longer that way.. Part on the bike, then the ball, then the bike etc. I need to build up my cardio stamina, which right now is pretty non-existant.. I’m hoping that if I bike then take a break and continue with a different type of exersize, then go back to the bike etc, it will help me work out for longer while still being able to breath lol. That’s the plan anyway.
I also think it’s time to take my measurments.. though I’m not entirely sure I’ll post them up on here. Maybe one day when I’ve lost inches I’ll post a before and after kind of thing. I noticed this morning that my tummy looks a bit thinner… In no way am I saying it looks THIN… but it looked smaller somehow, and that got me to thinking that I should probably take my measurments SOON so I can have a visual marker of my progress even if the lbs haven’t come off yet. Muscle does weight more than fat and I remember from my gym days that often times once you start to work out you gain more weight before you see the loss, but the truth is in the inches.
So there you have it. I hopped on the bike, I ate sensibly last night and I feel great! One more day down, many many more to go <3
