It’s almost bed time and I DID IT!!

*~*~*Happy Dance, Happy Dance, Happy Dance – Cha Cha Chaaaaaa!*~*~*

Oh, the day started sooo LOOOOW for me.  I made a plan, I worked the plan, and by 2:00 my mood was soaring as I danced through cleaning the kitchen with my iPod blaring!  Last night’s yoga experience was the worst one yet and I was so worried about going back.  I felt like a failure and didn’t want to fail 2 days in a row – I went, anyway.  I faced my fear head on and I DID it – I did myself proud!!  I feel like making it through this one day was a big hurdle – now I KNOW, that I KNOW, that I KNOW that I can work through the rough days.

I had a really poignant “Ah, Ha Moment”, too.  After my yoga session I was really hungry – REALLY hungry.  I thought to myself, “I’m gonna pig out… I’m going to have a salmon patty on a salad with every vegetable in the fridge!”  My mind didn’t even go to the junk foods that it would have thought of just 3 weeks ago!  I amazed myself.  I’m going to sleep one very happy girl tonight!

That is fantastic! They say it takes 22 days to make or break a habit. You’ve already broken your bad habits of junk food and couch sitting! Oh wait, that was me. Anyway, thanks for your comment. I look forward to reading along with your battle of the bulge!

Way to go! You DO rock!!

They say that muscle is heavier "by volume" than fat is, which means 5 lbs. of muscle takes up less space than 5 lbs. of fat within a body. I'm a believer. This totally explains how your clothes begin to fit better even though the numbers on the scale aren' t moving very fast.

This is GROSS. I know. But I'd rather see the fat HERE than on my body...

Each time we “resist” an urge to fall off plan or not exercise we strengthen our “resistance muscle” and each time we “give in” to temptation we strengthen our “give in muscle” making it easier to either "resist" or "give in" next time.
