Wow, week 6 already. I weighed in on Monday and I am down a total of 14 pounds and 10.5 inches so far! This is crazy. I knew that I had it in me but there is always sheer astonishment that I am actually doing this. It is actually becoming real life. The changes I am making with food, eating, exercise and my outlook, along with a closer relationship with Christ…this is for LIFE! I feel that I am getting the tools that I need to continue after the initial 8 weeks. I am continuing to make food choices and exercise choices that will impact me for the long haul. I am putting extra effort in my workouts, and pushing myself more than I thought I would. I need to know for myself that I can do this. I have started to prepare for what it will be like when I complete the 8 weeks. Everyone at Woodbury Spine is more than willing to answer questions, walk me through the steps, and let me know that once the first 8 weeks are done….it really just continues from there. It is just a matter of looking at it in 8 weeks at a time. Each time I start to worry I know that they will be there for me.
This week I also have noticed that I am able to keep up with the kids more, and with my husband. Our intimate life has gotten way better because I am not exhausted anymore. I am able to actually live now rather than waking up and still being tired just living let alone all the other stuff I need to do each day.
My Quote for week six is: The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results. (Tony Robbins)
