No Time Like the Present

Another great week!  I lost 2.4 pounds, and I'm down 8 pounds so far.  That makes me happy because I'm ahead of schedule.  This is important to me because I know there will come I time where I won't lose for a while.  It's nice to a bit of a cushion. :)

I also feel different.  My energy level is up.  I determined my prime work out time - in the middle of the day versus the end of the day.  I handle it so much better, and I don't feel like death on my way home.  I worked out every day in some shape or form.  I went to the gym all four days I was at work.  I did Zumba on the Wii (which is fantastic), and I also used my home elliptical.  Again, I'm mixing it up.  I didn't do Zumba at work, but I'm getting it at home so it's all good.
Shake ya ass!  Watch yo'self! 
Show me what you working with!

If you haven't tried Zumba, I highly suggest you do.  I did it this morning.  It's very fun, highly active, and when you're finished, you don't feel like you worked out.  Or at least I don't.  And, my fat was definitely crying.  Doubting Thomas was nowhere to be found this weekend. 

I've had a lot on my mind lately too.  My mom's youngest brother (and one of my favorite uncles) is not going well.  Congestive heart failure due to uncontrolled high blood pressure.  Lung cancer due to smoking.  It's hard to see my mom so hurt.  As a child, you are used to having your parents comfort you when you are in pain.  But, when you experience your parents in pain, it's hard to know what to do.  I let her know I'm there for her if she needs me, and I know she understands.  I just wish there was something I could do to help her more.

It seems that so many things are happening that reaffirm I'm definitely on the right track.  Folks, we are only given a limited amount of time to live our lives to the fullest.  Take advantage of every opportunity.  Be healthy.  Be happy.  Take care of yourself, and if you need help, ask for it.  If you fin yourself surrounded by doubters and haters, make them you motivators.  Fight.  Fight for a better life for you and your loves ones.  Do it now.  There is no time like the present to make a change to live a healthier life.  Become a Fighter.
