As of today, I am down 16.5 pounds. YAY!
We are in the season of Lent, and my husband and I gave up sugar. This has made it easier to stay on plan. I've even been drinking my coffee black. I enjoy our 'fish Fridays' too. I have also added praying the rosary every Monday at church. I have found it meditative and rejuvenating.
The sacrifice which causes sorrow to the doer of the sacrifice is no sacrifice. Real sacrifice lightens the mind of the doer and gives him a sense of peace and joy. ~Mahatma Gandhi
It continues to be challenging to be motivated to exercise. I try to get on my elliptical as often as I can. I walk with KK when I can as well. At the end of the month, I will be starting a women's bootcamp. I plan to do the bootcamp 3-days a week for 3 months. This should be exactly what I need to not only lose weight, but also get trim, fit and healthy in time for summer...and my brother's wedding (in 133 days!). I know once I get into a strict exercise routine, I will be hooked. Plus, once summer is here, I will be wanting to be active outdoors.
Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year - it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. ~Author Unknown
Thank you again to all my friends and family that have continued to give me strength and support on my way to a healthier me!
