Noticing the Little Things

For the past 9 weeks I have been doing a Sparkpeople challenge. I have been averaging a loss of a smiggen over 0.5 per week. Yay me. So, it is slow going, and while I want it all off today, I'm happy with my progress. Having said that - I noticed today that I have been wearing a sports bra that I haven't worn in a long time. It kinda just hit me today. I had stopped wearing it because while I could get it on, it had become so small that getting it off was a task and a half. Plus, while I had it on, I actually had trouble breathing - it was that constricting!! Anyhow, I've been wearing it for a week and a half now. Not only can I get it on and off easily, I can breathe!! I must have lost some inches around my chest. Yay me again!!

Yesterday was personal trainer day. She kicked my ass good. I am just getting over a cold, and she worked me so hard that I threw up (I had time to get to the bathroom). This is a breakthrough in and of itself. I have never pushed myself like that before. And I came back and finished the workout. We have a challenge going on at the gym and I had to finish the workout to get my sticker to put it on the board. Nothing was stopping me from getting that sticker. I have to get in 12 45 minute exercise sessions by the end of December. Because of the cold, I only have 4!! YIKES!!! I'm on my way now to do a run on the treadmill. I am going to do 5:1's, because my lungs are still congested (or something in that general area is) and I don't have much stamina. I still think that will be a kickass workout.

After that I'm off to the mall for some last minute Christmas shopping. Should be a total zoo. Blech.

Have a healthy, exercise filled, on program day bloggers!
