Beauty in the little things
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
The pants I had on yesterday were baggy... a year ago my legs looked like sausages in them. Every time I walked by a mirror at work it made me smile. And that is a change for me - b/c I'm still overweight. And in the past even with a loss, I'd walk by the mirror and just focus on my belly or something else. But I've been trying to be more positive since emotions play such a huge roll in our weight loss. So yesterday I reveled in the baggy pants :)
Today I am ACHY. Granted it's negative 10 outside right now, but my house is warm so that's no excuse! But I had 2 good workouts yesterday, my cardio dvd and then the elliptical last night. I did interval training which kicked my butt, but made me feel good. So as I'm creaking along today I'm finding beauty in the pain :)
It seems our biggest battle is getting discouraged and giving up. It's happened to me so many times in the past and I'm really determined to not let it happen again. So, I'll keep looking for the positive and focusing on the accomplishments along the way. Never give up!
