Weigh in Saturday, and I am holding steady at 169 lbs, and I the first 40 lbs seems to have been much easier than the second 40 lbs. 135 seems so far at the moment, but I am happy with the results so far. I said this before and I will say it again, I am now focusing on my fitness goals and I refuse to be stressed out from the scale. I have made tremendous strides and I will continue to do so, so what if I am in a silly plateau. 

Today I am going to go to the gym and see if I can have my measurements done. I wish I would have done this in the beginning, I know I have shrunk in inches. I am even much smaller than I was in April and I am only a few pounds less.

Off for my day, Love and light. Here is some photos charting my progress from when I began my journey last July.

Opening up my back with yoga and workouts

Sometimes progress is slow, and then all of a sudden there it is. My dance instructor back in college would yell every time I would hit a turn on point. I would double or triple pirouette and she would get right in my face and say “there it is. ” Of course it took a lot of hard work to get there, but when I did it felt like a surprise gift. 

All of a sudden I feel like someone is yelling at me, “there it is.” I am hitting my goals like I used to hit my turns, and it is definitely a surprise gift. My workouts with my personal trainer Mike are evolving, and he has figured out ways to help me loosen up my quads. It is this issue that keeps me from being able to get into dancers pose or mermaids pose in yoga and I have been frustrated. I want to get there, but I have struggled with it. I think I am on my way, and I am grateful for his expertise and time.We are now working out Tuesday’s and Thursdays. I am going to hit those poses like I used to hit my turns.

My Body is my temple, and I will never let it go to garbage again.
