just little insights to me and my world

Weighing in

on 04/04/2012

When I started my get fit 2012 my goal was 40 lbs by my 40th birthday! That was reasonable.. I had 35 weeks to lose 40 lbs. Well here it is 22 weeks until the big 4-0 and I am down 30 pounds! Yes you have heard me right.. 30!!! I am so proud of myself! This week has also become a great week because I finally got back in the water and swimming again! I was a swimmer in high school and haven’t done any kind of water workout in about 20 years.. It wasn’t a pretty sight Monday as I was struggling to get to the other end of the pool but I loved it and can’t wait for my endurance and strength to get better. I have really missed swimming!
My running is getter better(I guess) the fact I keep doing is an amazing feat in itself! I keep adding more and more activity to my life and I’m loving it!
I’ve become a fitness junkie almost.. I like looking at running shoes and workout gear and equipment!
The biggest thing for me is that I am a positive influence for my daughter.. She finally has eaten and likes broccoli and cauliflower! I am showing her how to live and eat healthy. Not only am I getting healthy for me but also to be around for her as she grows up.
I know it sounds cliche but it is a lifestyle change and not a diet.
And I couldn’t be happier!
