Another Beautiful Day!
Sunday, July 19, 2009
It has been beautiful weather here in the heart of the midwest. Very atypical weather for mid July. Usually, everything is turning brown by now.
I was really proud of my coworkers this morning. They kicked in high gear...money talks...$100 for 1st place and $50 for second. Maria who has lost a ton of wt now, flipped a dump truck tire over 72 times! Samantha flipped it 66 times. That was awesome. They then did the 1/2 mile run. Both ladies dropped their times on their run. We did some balance pods to let them breath a little! Then to the push ups. Maria did 31 push ups 3 weeks ago. Today 49! Samantha 10 to 24! We did a few more "tough man" games. Ended up the 2 ladies split it down the middle of 6 challenges.
This afternoon, the local team I'm on, Independence Sparkers, came over to my place for a work out. We were small, but it was worth the relaxation at the end of the yoga session. We did aerobics the 1st half and yoga the 2nd half.
I have declared Sundays as my down day. I'm over training. My body feels better today. I need to pay more attention to what it's saying! I know better! So, no weights or cardio on Sundays.
I've been doing my positive mental pep talk in the mornings still. I don't know if it is helping, but I shall keep going on with it. It can't hurt.
I started taking fish oil supplements 1 week ago. My skin/nails looks better. I think I cut out way to much of my fat intake.
I have a couple more weeks before I take my pictures. Any ideas of what I should wear? Bikinis are out! Sports bra?? I would like to see my back/shoulders. I've worked hardest on that part of my body. I would like to be able to embrace what I look like. I really have trouble with body dysmorphia. What I see in the mirror isn't exactly what others see. I know that I look better, stronger, better cardio endurance...there is always a doubt that I could do something better. This sounds strange to some, but when you have been overwt/obese most of your life that is what your minds remembers and sees in the mirror.
So, if you have any ideas, I would appreciate them!
Strong Mind, Strong Body!
