Game On!!!

Okay, it begins today.

I can't believe how motivating my post from Friday was to me. Sometimes writing things out and reading them really make a difference (I've read it 4 times and I'll probably continue to read it). I wasn't going to begin this journey until Monday but I've decided, why wait. There is no time like the present right??? So, Game On!!!!!

In my mind this weight loss effort has become my own Ironman. I need to get through this challenge before I can move on to the next. So it's one workout at a time, one meal at a time, everything in the now not the later. Nothing has any power over me except my ultimate goal. I have to keep that vision in mind.

I'm going to print out a weekly workout schedule and hang it right next to my computer. I'm also going to print out my goal weight and post it there too. That way these things will be constantly in front of my face and a reminder of where I'm headed.

Unfortunatley, this blog will be dwelling on weight loss and workouts for the next few months. Tri training will be there but not as prominent since I'm focused elsewhere right now. It will probably become very self indulgent and I apologize about that but when it comes down to it, it's really all about me :)

It's an absolutely beautiful morning and I think I'll go for a bike ride.

That's a great start and a great attitude!

I'm doing well at counting calories, still, but it sucks. But I keep telling myself that it's just like the workouts - gotta put in the time and effort every day and it will eventually yield results.

Weight loss and workouts are all part of the process. Triathletes appreciate this as much (if not more) than other athletes. Can't wait to read your story.

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
