The journey continues on and I am more excited and determined than ever to reach my goals. My new trainer is a schemer....she plants these wild ideas in my mind and once they are in there....I just want to make them happen. Like....
- She says, "Don't you have an hour lunch hour?" And I'm like "Yeah......meh! Why?" She says, "Well you know, you can get more cardio in during that time. Would be good for you...so many benefits. More time moving, better concentration etc. I'm like blah blah blah while she's talking and then the next thing I'm doing is checking out the facilities in our building to see how I can make this work. We have showers and lockers there, so that is helpful. And then the next thing I'm doing is getting my workout clothes together, I bought a lock....Guess what? I'm walking at lunch!
- Then the another day, she says, "You know, you need something to shoot for. Have you ever thought of doing a 1/2 marathon?" And I'm like GULP ~ YIKES ~ HUH ~ ME? And of course I give her all of my reasons why I can't do this. Then the next thing you know, I'm checking out an event that is scheduled in June and Hubby and I are going to be riding (our bikes) on the race route to check it out. I want to see it visually first. We are riding the course this weekend!
- Then we were talking about my weight goal. I told her that I'm shooting for 150 and she says, "You know, I can totally see you less than that." And I'm like, "OK 140 then." She says, "No I can see you in the 20's. HUH? Nobody has ever said that to me.
I need to be on guard for every time she says....You know!!
So that is some of the stuff that I'm pushing toward. I'm starting to see myself using my lunch time as a productive time for my health, instead of playing games or goofing off. I'm starting to see myself as a marathoner! And I CAN see myself at 125 pounds!
Do you have people in your life who encourage you, like my trainer does for me? If not, you need to find new friends! It could be life changing!!
