Wow!! What a week! Not sure where exactly it went, but all I know is that I’ve been busy…bust kickin ass! I have lost 3 pounds so far, and I am ecstatic. I finally found my groove. Wednesday was the “Ah-ha!” moment for sure…but it made me realize that I am capable, strong, determined, and most of all…worth it.
As I look at my self, only 3 pounds down, I can see changes. I see my hard work paying off. “Only 3 pounds??” you say? Well I am an itty bitty, so 3 pounds is very noticeable on, or off.
Today I challenged myself, really pushed myself. On the Elliptical this morning I had only planned my usual 30 minutes, and then was going to move on to the bikes that I hate. But then I decided that I’d rather ride my bike at home. So at 30 minutes I said to myself “You’re not done, go for 40 minutes”. It was hard…but not hard enough because I made myself do another 5 minutes. It was awesome. I actually pushed myself to do something I had not done before, I did something I was not sure I could do. I am feeling so much more confident, and that is a brand new feeling for me. Today was all about pushing myself. And I am so glad that I did!!
Have you had that moment where you pushed yourself past what you thought you could do? How did it go?
