Workout results 2/16 -

Monday, February 16, 2009

Today was a fantastic day! Just knowing that soon we will be home gave me a much needed push and my workouts ROCKED! These last few days are bringing out many emotions. We are of course happy, but I am also a bit sentimental in that this place is where I turned my life around. I could not help but think today of when I first started working out here. I was so scared that I would not succeed. I was afraid of letting down not only myself but my husband and all who believed in me. I took things day by day and now 3 years later I do not recognize the girl who first arrived here, so heavy and out of shape. I am so proud that I did it, I made the most of my time here! It is a feeling that is hard to describe but one that I pray I never forget.

    Wow! That's impressive!

    What is the time difference - I'm guessing 8-12 hours or so because you said you HAD a great day and I'm just starting mine! ;o)

    Do you come up with your own routines or do you have a plan you follow?

    Keep killin it!

    Great job! I'm glad you got your groove back! Just think of the new "firsts" you'll have in TX - your first gym membership, your first triathalon, etc!
