The journey...

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.

12 Week Weight Loss Competition

12 Week Weight Loss Competition
Week Total: -0.4 (sigh)
Competition Total: -25.8 lbs

WEIGHT WATCHERS TOTAL (started Feb): -45.8 lbs

Oh well, at least it's a loss.

I don't know what more there really is to say other than read 2 posts back I believe and you'll hear my whining. Then read one post back and hear my "change of attitude" that results whenever I choose to look at the "bigger" picture. Whew <-- I'd usually crack some fat joke about that "bigger" picture comment, but I'm out of energy. :) So, if it's possible to bruise your rib cage by exercise, I think I learned how to from Monday and Wednesday's workout. I worked out with Debbie (a former personal trainer), and she had me doing air bicycles and backwards cruches and these funky side-twist thingys that all work your abdominal muscles. WOWIE! Ha, so as much pain as I'm feeling days later, I THINK I LOVE IT!!! It's a new feeling to think I have stomach muscles that may some day come to existence. So I'm super excited for the new things that next week holds:

1. Start of DEEP water aerobics on T-Th for the month of June - hoping to switch up my routine a bit to jump out of this seemingly endless plateau.

2. Start of my 9-week "Biggest Loser" competition for work...it will be interesting folks!

3. New month, hey, that's cool - start of month 5 of weight loss life-style changes

4. CHARGE! Yep, I think I'll be attending my 1st Royals game of the season. GO ROYALS!

Today I'm thinking on the things that are praiseworthy...

Verse of the Day:

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
