Day 62 - 7 Month Focus

You know how you speak something's the truth....and you believe it and then the minute you've said it, everything goes to heck in a hand basket! (Never typed that phrase in all my life!) Anyway, I'm going to speak out something and I'm not going to be afraid that things will change!!
I truly feel that I'm back! Whew....I am more of the woman I want to be. I doing what I say...Up at 5am, getting my exercise done, reading my Bible, working hard at work, loving my family, mentoring and ministering to others, and loving life! It's a great place to be and just because I said it, does not mean it will all go crashing least not right now. I'm enjoying this time!!!!

Went to my stability ball class last night. In fact, I've been getting a lot of variety in lately....5K on Saturday, weights and cardio on Monday, water aerobics on Tuesday, stability ball class last night and this morning running and weights. That's the kind of week I like! Plus and this is a bonus, I an keeping close to my calorie goal. Kind of forgetting food. Hum that is weird!!!! Back to the stability ball class. I had a great time!! It's such a fun class and I can totally see the progress in my strength and balance. I remember the day when I could barely sit on the ball without falling off. Now I'm doing all kinds of weird stuff on it. Anyway, last night was the first time in my whole life, that I could look in the mirror and really like what I see. It's almost like I'm looking at someone else, I don't know that it's my body. Now I get why people look at themselves, they like what they see. When I was younger I had a friend who always looked at herself in the mirror and I'm like what are you looking at, don't you know what you look like? I just did not get it. Now I do! Love seeing how toned my body is getting and especially like seeing in the mirror that I'm doing the exercise right. Really fun!!!

Another BONUS ~ My Hubby went to the gym with me. I love it when he goes. Makes me really happy!!!!

  1. Wow you rock! (sorry if this a duplicate comnent). I am so impressed with how far you have come, joy. Good for you! Now stayfocused!

  2. The other option of course is that you speak out, it becomes the truth and it just is. But I know what you mean, my morning was going unbelievably smoothly and I was worried to say how good just in case it all went to pot. :o)
