Finding Peace

I have recently discovered some mental peace, lately I have had this feeling like it’s all going to work.  I will get to goal no matter how long it takes, I will pass my sticking point of the dreaded size 12.  I had a .8 loss at ww three weeks ago and then a .2 gain and this was the first gain that didn’t upset me.  I knew I worked all week and ate well it was a temporary gain and I would be down and last week sure enough I was down 1.4.  I am hearing compliments like you look fantastic or amazing and I am taking them with big smiles and thank yous not because I think I look amazing or fantastic it’s because I FEEL amazing.  I have found a mental peace with my body I haven’t had in years, I contribute this to working out, it took a long time to get into the groove and like working out but I love it now and going a couple of days without it puts me in a funk.

We went away this past weekend for vacation to my parent’s cabin ( cause nothing says vacation like 5 kids in a 3 room cabin!) I ran my 5k on saturday and then we headed north.  I didn’t workout sunday and have been eating crap since I was on vacation and I could feel it by Monday.  We came home and I was so glad I could get back to eating REAL food and working out. I hit spin class that night and will work out today as well.

I am actually excited to workout at some of the day classes at the gym this week and get some biking in.  I am going to run to the class on Wednesday since it’s bodypump and focuses on weight lifting.

My eating this week won’t be perfect I know that, more so it’s my drinking that won’t be perfect but it’s ok I take vacation once a year so if I gain at the end of the week I will know what caused it and again it’s temporary as I don’t drink this much or overindulge like this the other 51 weeks a year.

I quickly mentioned my 5K and did want to take a moment to recognize this accomplishment.  I ran the WHOLE thing without stopping and the last mile was ALL an incline.  I did it in 35.16 which is almost 2 and a 1/2 minutes faster than my last 5k.  I was so excited about this.I actually looked in the mirror after taking this photo and said t my daughter look how slim I look this i the first time I have recognized the loss, I know I have lost but I still can’t always see it.

And one picture at the end.  It was an amazing day and a great way to start my vacation we are looking for a race to end it to I will post if we find and run one!
