Some thoughts, 10 days into the program

  • I hate every step of running.

    I am so glad I have an iPhone (I run with Justin Timberlake- or I pretend to).

    The trainer I was randomly assigned to at my gym doesn't "get" what I'm doing (switch?).

    It is not that hard to eat right if you are paying attention.

    I am really fat (SW= 200 and I am 5'4") and I wasn't really seeing it until I took underwear photos.

    I cried after I had my body fat percentage measured and found out that I was carrying around over 70 pounds of fat.

    I also have 122# of lean body mass (that I intend to not only keep but add to by building more muscle).

    I can do this. There is no reason why I can't be a smoking hot hardbody (or close) by this time next year.

    I will never again duck behind a bookstore shelf to avoid an ex-boyfriend (who didn't even end up recognizing me- presumably because I look so different from the 135# soldier he dated).

    I feel so glad that my kids will have a healthy mama.

  • What a keeper of a letter to look back at a year from now with new eyes and new body.

    The part I liked the best was on line 8. "I can do this".

    Yes you can. :)

  • Some great observations. Keep it up. I wish you all the best on your fitness journey.
