Wednesday "Go Me" Moment!
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
This morning was scheduled to be an off day for Chalean Extreme so I decided to do Jillian Michael's Kickboxing. Its not a very long DVD, maybe 20-25 minutes max. but its a very effective workout.
I remember when I first got the video a year or so ago I had a hard time sticking with it. This morning I had no troubles at all. It certainly wasn't easy, and I was totally covered in sweat when I was done, but I did it. That is my "Go Me" Moment.
I know I've mentioned a few times that Feb. 1st is what I consider my start date back with Sparkpeople. Had I even done that workout back in February it would have been hard for me.
Its important to recognize the little stuff. Its not all about the number on the scale but the little accomplishments along the way. I think in the past I let myself get derailed by not seeing progress fast enough. I've learned to look for progress in other ways. I'm not saying losing actual weight isn't important because ultimately I think its why most of us are here.
I love the fact that I'm now almost 2 months soda free, can do at least 3 push ups on my toes, am running faster and longer each time, and can stick fairly well with my cardio DVDs. These are all things I couldn't do at the start of the year and I love to see for myself, finally, that consistency is paying off!
