First October Motivational Monday!


Well, I stepped it up this week just like I promised in my new goals for the month of October. I didn't let my allergies stop me, like I would have in the past. On Wednesday when I had a crazy busy day I missed my workout...but on Thursday I made up for it by doing both my dance workout and the treadmill. I don't want to lose my momentum!
I got on the scale this morning to find that I lost 1.4 pounds. You would think I'd be a little disappointed with that after all of the extra effort this week, but I'm not. It is also that famous "time of the month"...during which I usually do not lose weight and sometimes gain. It is a great victory to get past that monthly hurdle and lose almost a pound and a half! I now weigh 200 on the nose...so next week I will definitely be seeing the 100's!!!
This week I am again picking several motivational people for the week. The current cast of The Biggest Loser has so many hurdles to overcome...physically, mentally, and emotionally. I identify with all of them for different reasons, and I bet you will too. It's only become more intense since the season premiere. Check them out at http://www.nbc.com/the-biggest-loser to be inspired...I dare you to sit on the couch eating cookies after this!
Here's to a great week ahead for all of us: filled with healthy eating, calorie burning, fat blasting, and strength from God!

That's something I still have to "learn": that when I miss a workout, I catch up the next day. Don't do that up till now.

But you did: great job!
