It's The Little Things . . . A Daily (Or Daily-ish) celebration, 12-11-12

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

So I have been seriously busting my behind for the past two weeks. I'm participating in an Iron Santa, which is virtual iron-man throughout the month of December. Basically the idea is that we all keep track of our mileage as we complete iron man distances, but instead of doing it in a day we have all of December to log 26 running miles, 112 biking miles, and 2.5 swimming miles. The entry fee goes to Christmas for deserving families, and then we have a celebration dinner in January.

SOOOOO, I've been biking and swimming and running, and I also just started a weight lifting class called RIP barbell that I LOVE.

But my body is being mean to me and it isn't budging.

So where is the celebration? Here it is: I'm still going. I'm trying REALLY REALLY hard not to get discouraged. I'm trying to focus on how I feel, how my fitness levels are improving, and how my body is changing in other ways. I really want to lose these stubborn pounds, but I am keeping the faith, hoping they will eventually start dropping if I just keep going.

    Wow! This is an amazing challenge. Not sure what/how you are doing with your food, but maybe you want to take a closer look at that...

    Eventually I guess is the key word. You've come so far, just keep going. You'll get where you want to go. emoticon Tami

    maybe you are gaining muscle? I don't know. But you should be super proud you are doing SOMETHING, I bet your heart appreciates it

    Hang in there. Sometimes it takes the scale a bit of time to catch up with all the hard work that you're body is putting in. I love the idea of the virtual iron man and even better that there is money going to a good cause!
