Well I’m actually up early every morning but today I got up early, walked for 28 min and enjoyed a soyburger for breakfast–Yum! I walked in a new area today and I liked the fact that it’s on a small grade, so I could feel that slight incline and it made me feel good that I took my walking up a notch (even if it’s just a small notch!) I also used my exercise ball for 10 min last night. Not breaking any records here but every little bit helps!
I seem to be getting back in my grove. Once I got under 200#s I swear it’s like I had to take a break. I still ate good and got in my minimum of exercising but I stopped pushing myself to the next level. I really don’t think that’s a bad thing, just needed a break and I felt like my body needed time to adjust.
I keep visiting the 3FC site and am amazed to see people who are similar height and weight to me and I think to myself “Wow, they look great!” Then I think, “Do I look like that?” I think we always magnify our own flaws and have a hard time looking at ourselves and saying that we actually look OK. I Don’t want to become conceited I just think I need to look at myself in a more positive light and not focus on my flaws, I need to focus on what’s nice about me…like my newly discovered collarbone, my high cheekbones that are finally showing through, etc….I also have to focus on the fact that a year ago I was fighting to get into 22/24 pants and now I’m in size 14. I’m starting to take more care with the way I look trying to dress nicer and be more feminine. I used to live in jeans and tennis shoes, and yes they are still a staple, but now I have some summer tanks, sandles, dressy tops, and dressy shorts in my wardrobe.
I’m making baby steps here but each one takes me closer to my goal.
