Another weigh in last night. I worked really hard this past week. Zumba, kickboxing, surging and strengthening exercises. Salads, protein and good fat. Increased my daily calorie count and made lots of good choices.
The result...Da ta da.......nothing. No change, nada...
I could have been really discouraged, but surprisingly I wasn't. Okay, another change...in the past, I would have given up and started eating what I wanted and lay around because what does it matter anyway, I am not losing weight.
But now I have to say that yesterday I gave myself a new challenge. I am training for a 5k. The Hubs, who use to run, but doesn't anymore because of knee surgery, agreed to train with me and run it as well. Two old gimps doing this together.
We have several friends who are or have fought the good fight of breast cancer. My mother passed away from breast cancer. So we are going to do the Race for a Cure 5k in exactly one month. May 23rd. That means a lot of training between now and then. But I am looking forward to it. Really and truly looking forward to it.
Having a goal, a purpose is something I need to keep me going on this road to health. I am constantly reminded about Paul's letter to the Philippians, verse 3:14 "I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heaven prize for which God, through Jesus Christ is calling us". Yes, at this point I am taking this quite literally, but this is also the verse I am striving to accomplish each day spiritually as well.
I am changing and pressing on, will you join me?
