It is ME AGAINST MYSELF

on September 8, 2012

I am realizing as I sit down to blog, man this week has been non stop.  I am sure we all feel this way at one point or another, but the pace of the school year has really set in at this point.  I feel pretty good about this week.  Heather gave me my results my weight was down 1.2 lbs and my body fat was down .4%.  I am pretty excited to have both numbers move in the same direction finally….DOWN.

Realizing that there is room for improvement on last week makes me feel pretty good about it.  I know i refocused, but I also know that I can eat cleaner, I can push myself harder, and next week I can do even better!!

Heather said something to me this morning that is so true.  I am not competing with anyone else, I am only competing with myself.  I never thought of it like that, I know that I struggle and I get down on myself.  I feel like I have been at the same place for months, but truth is I am not upset about it, I just wish it was easier.  Like everyone else I wish I could eat whatever I want and not need to workout  6 days a week.

The more I think about this, the more untrue I realize it has become.  I have waited 9 years to be able to take this time for myself.  I deserve to be able to workout 6 days a week.  If each one of us were more thankful for being able to afford the opportunity to put ourselves first maybe this journey wouldn’t feel like so much work.  I am only going to get the results I deserve from the effort that I put in.
