I have a special ranch - my new home - and I have done a pretty good job making my "gym" fit for me at my home. (Mo's Gym). Everytime I am on the punching bag of fun I think that Jillian or Bob is pushing me to the next level. I even think of all those others out there that are struggling with weight and being healthy. If they can do it, I can do it. I am not working out as much as I could, but I am making good use of my time and making my workouts fit into my schedule. I am proud to say I have not exactly lost my lunch during a workout - do I really want to?? And I have had many eye opening moments. Putting on clothes that haven't fit well in years, feeling better, waking up refreshed and ready to hit the "gym", wanting to use my balance ball for a chair at my desk rather then actually sitting on a chair, eating more vegetables and drinking tons of water, getting a guy to notice me, people saying things to me about looking better, the high five I got from my older sister when I told her I was down 31 pounds (that was awesome), and the most eye opening thing for me is this - I am so glad I am doing this now!! Taking care of me - I am feeling less stressed about life in general - feeling recharged - taking things as they come to me - loving my new life for what it all has to offer me.
It is amazing how dropping pounds, taking the time to exercise, eating better, and making yourself feel better can make you feel like a STAR!!! When I hit my goal I want to have a party - a confetti, crowd screaming, music blasting event - that will be my moment - my recognition and just for my son we should have a "stage" for him to celebrate with me.
Keep it up - stay strong - continue on the path of success - soon all of us will reach our goals!!
