331 Days to Goal: Fit and Fabulous by 50!!!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Today is 9/11/12...11 years since the World Trade Center disaster, the plane crash in PA and the Pentagon. So much has changed in life and in the US. I am thankful that I am able to remember on this Patriot Day. Prayers for blessings to the families left behind that day and for the men and women who have lost their lives in the war on terror. Also prayers for those continuing to fight the fight whether in the Middle East or back home from the battle field...their lives will never be the same.

Today was a day of reckoning for me. I met with my trainer for weigh in and measurements this morning. It was time for me to establish a new baseline for action.

The good news is that my calves measured the same today as they did 15 months ago (time of the last official weigh in). Unfortunately, I expanded in all other areas. I officially reset my weight today . The other good news is that I recognize that these are all just numbers and measurements that reflect the work I have not done in recent months. Also it is an indication that I am in touch with my body. Despite friends telling me how much better I was looking I just new that I was growing and not shrinking. I am where I am and I now know how far I need to go to reach goal! Yeah!!!

I am STILL waiting for my background check to come in so that I can begin to work at CVS. The wait is more than a little frustrating, but I have been assured they will not require a DNA sample to prove my identity once the check comes in. LOL! I keep looking at the silver linings..what can I say.

The delay in starting work has allowed me to be available to help a friend through a health crisis and a family crisis so I know that the wait is not wasted. Even more I know that the delay is not taking God by surprised and He has things in control.

Planning to go to bed now. Hope all are blessed.
