Day 19 - 7 Month Focus

Finally!!! I had a fantastic day yesterday!!! Never in my life have I exercised 3 times in one day! NEVER!!! But that's what happened yesterday. I got up for my regular treadmill time and burned 200 calories. Then I met with my trainer...we did 15 minutes on the treadmill - burned 130 calories, did my weight routine and then 30 minutes on the bike - burned 200 calories. Then I got home and hubby and I went for a walk. Did I hit my steps for yesterday - YES I DID!! Woo hoo ~ I logged in 14733!

Calories were still a little high - My Bodybugg recorded the following: 2941 activity calories minus 1988 calories consumed with a deficit of 953 calories for the day! Success!

Also drank my water, Blogged and journaled my food.

OK now the tough stuff!!! My trainer is really trying to help me go to the next level. As you can see, I do put the time in at the gym or on my treadmill, but I'm not really maximizing my time. My trainer is determined to get me to hit 300 calories burned everytime I do cardio. She thinks I can do it in 30 minutes. Well, I did not think I can do this!! So she has challenged me. While I was on the treadmill last night. She bumped my incline to 7.5 and 3.8 speed. Guess what, I did not die!!! In fact, I did it and I did it well!! Was I sweating like a pig when we were done? Yes I was, but that's just the way she likes it.

Since we broke one of my belief barriers that I was not capable, the challenge is on!!! I can really push myself! I can go to the next level. The only thing stopping me ~ IS ME!!

So this morning. I joined the 5:00 club and I was out of bed. I got in 35 minutes on my treadmill and I reach 310 calories!!! I did intervals of increased speed and incline. I did it!! ME!!

So what I've learned is ~ If you say you can't you can't. If you say you can and then try it. You might just find out that you've got what it takes to get the job done.

So are you with me? Are you ready to break down some belief barriers. Are you ready to go to the next level. Decide you can and LETS GO FOR IT!!

Keep focused!!!
