Goal Day Change

I have to admit I was convinced that I would make it to goal in 9 months but reality has hit me in the face. That with a few weeks left 26 pounds will not vanish in that time. So I pushed it back and I am OK with it, part of this journey is adapting and changing. I am off for the summer, so I start my day, 6 days a week with a run. I actually look forward to it and wake up in the morning pumped!!!In the evening, I was doing P90X and now I am doing Insanity. I find that I can do so much more than I ever thought I could.  I am physically strong now, with muscles forming and visible.

 I completed the  P90X lean program and that program changed my life.  I can do pull ups, chin ups and push ups!!Theses are things that I used to watch other people do and never thought I woud be phsyically able. Now I pump them in out in sets of 25!! Yes SETS OF 25!!!!  I am also taking swimming lessons again, so that I can be comfortable swimming laps.  If you remember one of my earlier blogs, I said that one of my goals was to wear shorts. Well I own several pairs now and wear them on a daily basis!!!

When I started this blog, I did it to keep myself motivated. I have since met some amazing people that are on the same journey. It amazes me, how magnificent the men and women  are that I have encountered on this journey.  They are also a wealth of information, I blog jump looking for recipes and dinner ideas. I have also joined  two groups on face book, with  two very different groups of people. Each group keeps me motivated in a different way. I must just say "WOW" this journey has changed my life. I am a different person physically, mentally and emotionally. Everyone around me can see that I am brighter(lighter) every day.

If you are contemplating a change, don't think about it one more day. DO IT!! Get Off The Couch!

Love this post! I tried a pull up at the playground today. Still can't do one. I need assistance, lol. I'm thinking of investing in a pull up bar. Do you have one? If so where did you get it, how much did you pay, etc. You're doing GREAT!!! I'm sure it won't take you much longer to reach your goal.
