Motivational Monday

I had a great workout on the Elliptical today - 17.5 mins 2x. I also did 25 mins on the stationary bike. My knee feels pretty good. I have to keep up the stretching too. I decided I'm going to start posting motivational quotes each Monday again. I also started working on a vision board this weekend. I completed an online version but I think I'm going to like having one that I can display in my office. I'll post a photo once it's completed.

This week's quote:

The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start. ~John Bingham

Chasing The Night/Chasing A Dream

Today I signed up for the Atlanta Firefly 5K Run. I'm excited and nervous. I've tried to complete the Couch to 5K twice. I'm hoping, no, I'm praying, I can make it to the end this time. This all started with an innocent comment I made to someone I met at a retreat. We became Facebook friends and now I'm on her team to run in this race in October. I'm grateful I met someone who is so willing to help me achieve my dream. This is the wonderful thing about meeting people who understand food/weight challenges. It's a great reminder to me that there are so many people out there experiencing the same challenges on this journey to health and wholeness. I'm still working on strengthening my knee by working out on the Elliptical three times a week.

Try, Try Again!

Well, here we go again. I have it in my head (and heart) to run in a 5K. Today one of my friends invited to join her team for the Firefly 5K in October. She knows running a 5K is a goal and has been encouraging me to start training again. I do believe this is just the motivation I need to get my butt in gear. We'll see...

I Can't Give Up Now

It’s been a while since I checked in. I need to do it today because I’m starting to lose hope and get discouraged. I so frustrated that the scale is not moving. I know all the heady stuff about focusing on health and not weight loss. The truth is that I really want these last 40 or so pounds gone! I’ve got to find so way to motivate myself to keep moving – literally and figuratively!
