Well, I’ve been keeping up with my new years resolution for this year! In January I started using the BodyMedia Link armband and it has been phenomenal at keeping me on track. Then in March I started using the Peak Fit System and really started to see a difference in my body transformation. Finally at the tail end of March we purchased a ProForm treadmill and I’ve been combining the iPhone Couch to 5k app with the aforementioned fitness regime. I’m not only the smallest and lightest I’ve ever been, but also the most muscular. No more waving arm flaps and thighs touching when I walk. I’ve learned to embrace shorts and skinny jeans!
My husband did an amazing job putting our game room / fitness room together. You can see it in the upper left hand corner of the collage above. We can box, run, lift weights, watch TV, do DVD work outs, and get our active gaming on with the XBOX 360 Kinect.
It’s pretty amazing how much better I feel about myself in general. Shopping has become so much easier, and I’m much more confident when I get dressed every day. Working out and eating right has given me more energy and enthusiasm for life. Now that I’m reaching all of these goals I want to set new ones! I’d like to run a marathon (a 10k to start) the best part is for the first time in my life I not only think I can do it – I KNOW I CAN.
So this is for all of you out there who think you’ll never make it because YOU WILL. Just believe that you can and never give up. I’ve come a long way since being an overweight child, teenager, and another dangerous gain during pregnancy. Don’t let your past be a crutch. You can make every day better than the last one.
