Do it for you!

I'm so happy to say I had a loss this week! 2.2 lbs.!! It was a long time waiting but I did it. Or should I say my body did it :)
I had to push pass a lot of mental barriers this week, like my eating. Eating is the most hardest part of weight loss. I have to say I did indulge a few times but I kept it minimal and didn't have a whole cheat day just a few treats and that seemed to make all the difference. I have to learn not to rely on exercise to cover what I have eaten, but to eat so I can exercise. I found that out the other day when I thought I was going to eat a big breakfast and then do a workout. I kept saying to myself dam what is wrong with my legs I cant run long. Not knowing what I had eaten made me sluggish and not preform to my bodies full potential. Lesson learned! I have been sticking to a small breakfast, then eat right after my workout to refuel, seems to work for my body and recovery time is quick. I feel awesome right now and I don't want this to end :)
 I would tell my self if I did the extra work, soon my body would give in and start doing what I wanted it to do. I didn't give up and I did it for me!
I love the way the exercising has made me feel, better mood, stronger both mentally and physically. I cant say it enough, push past those mental barriers, it is worth it!

So this week I accomplished:

12 miles of running
7 days of Jillian dvd shred

My inspiration for this week:

When it’s time to die, let us not discover that we have never lived.

— Henry David Thoreau
