The "E" Word

Everyone already knows I'm a nut, but PK and I have been having a blast exercising together. We are like a couple of "chatterboxes" the entire time we are working out. (except of course when we have to shut up just to breath. lol) Trying to set realistic goals can be hard for me. I want instance results and I want them yesterday. Pk has inspired me with her steady sensible weight loss. We have an accountability chart we are keeping, then sharing with each other each week. The primary goal is to get healthier instead of focusing on the number of lbs lost. That can be a big problem for me. I'm hoping by the end of the summer there will be a noticable improvement in my weight and my health. I have already notice I feel happier after exercisng than I did before.

They say exercise is one of the best things you can do for your self health wise and emotionally. The endorphine thing:) Its even better when you can do it with someone and have fun!!! Glade your enjoying yourself with it!!!!

Now, if we can get myself to reward myself and be HAPPY with my slow steady sensible weight loss that I've had ...instead of rolling my eyes at how slow and steady it's been ...

You're right ... focus on the health ... the focus is being healthy ...fit ...now the pounds to go ...healthy fit ...not ... healthy ...fit ...

you might need to knock that into my head a few times.

well here is something to remember slow but steady is good because it generally means the weight will stay off longer. . . does that help any?
