-98 Two Pounds to 100

Good Morning.  I am so excited this morning. I am at a 98 pound loss today!!! That's only two more pounds to my 100 pound goal. I started making an attempt to do some form of exercise every day (except I took two days on Saturday and Sunday off). I started this last week.  I decided even if I am not home and cannot exercise in my living room that I would find a place to walk walk walk while I am out.  I want to try and walk at least a mile a day or do the equivalent in exercise. No one can make me do this I have to commit to this.  I saw a post by my coach Darcie Armstrong talking about the difference between intention and commitment. It is so true, Good intentions can be interrupted, HOWEVER..., committed to something will more likely result in follow through and completion of the desired task.

Here are the three workouts I am currently alternating between.  I have three so I don't get bored continually doing the same thing over and over again.

As soon as I can afford to do so I will be purchasing Tia Cheng from my Beach Body Coach.

I have been disciplining my self to workout everyday whether I feel like it or not. So thanks for all the support my friends and family have been giving me. I do appreciate it greatly.

Hello Again...It's Been Awhile

Hello, I see its been over three months since I posted anything in this blog.  I am so sorry. I apologize for being a slacker. I have had quite a busy time of it lately. Several things have been going on. I had a very intense Statistics class at ECPI University. I passed it which was my goal. Now I have moved on to other classes that are not as difficult. I am just glad I don't have to repeat the class.

We have also had some difficult times with my father-in-law. He is deteriorating fast. He is 92 years old and it is not expected that he will live much longer. He has difficulty eating and has several other serious medical issues that will take their toll on him sooner rather than later.

Then there are the snow storms we have had.  Most people around here don't really like them, however, I am a different story. I enjoyed them very much. In fact in the middle of the last one I rented a car and made the trip to a women's retreat even after the bus I was planning on taking cancelled their trip. I  am so glad I did. I had an awesome time and was extremely blessed by the message given at the retreat.  God is good.

Well an update on my weight loss.  I have lost 12 pounds since my last post in January.  I now weigh 280. This is an exciting thing for me.  I have dropped from a 5x size (at the beginning of my journey) to a 3x almost 2x. I am shopping at the same stores my 19 year old daughter shops at. It is so fun to go shopping with her. She is so encouraging to me.  My whole family is very encouraging and I wish to say thank you so much for being there for my journey.  I have so many friends who are also very supportive and I wish to thank them as well.  So the journey continues.  I have a total weight loss at this point of 94 pounds. Once again God is good!

This is one of my favorites!
