Now I am not saying that the last month has been a cake walk. There have been some very tough obstacles that I have had to over come. For example: my cravings for junk food, the saga I went through when my scale broke, and who can forget the on going struggle of attempting to wake up in the morning to start a morning workout routine. But for every dark cloud there is a silver lining. I am in the process of building an amazing support group not only for myself but for everyone who is struggling with weight issues. Because of my great support group, I have not strayed from the weight loss program with the fear of letting everyone down. I have learned to express my feelings through words. I have developed a new found confidence in not only my physical features but in myself as well. My clothes are slowly becoming baggy on me. I finally was able to wake up this morning to workout after 30 attempts. Don't forget the most important silver lining so far, I have lost 22 lbs to date and have got that much healthier since Day #1!!!!
I am very happy with how this mission has started. Well what else can I say then , "One Month Down and a Life Time to Go."
Well folks, I finally did it. I managed to wake up this morning and got my butt to the gym. It was a little easier then yesterday I can tell you that much. I had set my first alarm last night for 7:30am and placed it on the other side of the room. I then set my second alarm for 7:30am and placed it on the desk right next to my side of the bed. Well, 7:30am rolled around and I got up out of bed and shut it off. I then rolled back into bed and slept for 15 more minutes. Once the clock hit 7:45am, I jumped out of bed, got dressed and went to the gym for a nice hour of cadrio and core body workout. I tell you what, after this morning's workout, I felt energized and ready for the day. Working out however, did make me hungrier during the day. I one today's battle but there still is a war.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
