Good Saturday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's another lovely weekend here. I'm lookig forward to the activities planned. Hanging out with friends today and family tomorrow...good times :)
I had a really good week. I'm still kicking up my workouts each week...always aiming for higher intensity workouts. If you follow me on Facebook, you also saw that on Tuesday I was inspired and rocked my best elliptical workout to date. Of course, I had a lovely view during that time. There is this really nice looking guy in the gym that I was scoping out. Wow! That was fun and fantastic.
I also reconnected with a really good friend of mine. She's my riding buddy. For those of you who don't know, I happen to own a motorcycle that I like to ride from time to time. I haven't ridden it much over the last year. To be honest, being as heavy as I was made for a poor experience on the bike, and I was seriously considering selling it. Now that I've lost 60 pounds (more on that later), I find that I'm rediscovering how fun motorcycling can be. This picture is from over four years ago when I was learning how to ride. I was also starting to gain back all the weight that I'd lost.
Not only does my friend ride, she's also a fitness instructor. She's Zumba certified and she also teaches Kettlebells. When I told her I'd lost a bit of weight, she was very encouraging. She also offered to workout with me a few days a week. She likes to go to the beach to do strength training and other activities. I will most certainly take her up on her offer and join in. She's the perfect person to help me with the strength training portion of my workouts. She's truly a blessing and is also inspiring. I'm glad I have her as a friend. Many hugs to you A.S. :)
Now, why is my mood all about TWO this week? What does TWO mean? Well, I only have two pounds to go before I reach my one year goal of 62.4 pounds. I'll admit that when I started my "new lifestyle" never though I'd be sitting on the brink of a milestone six months ahead of schedule. I'm taking this as the pure blessing that it is and MOVE ON. Knowing I'm close is really motivating me. I could have bummed out of my workout yesterday and today, but I didn't because each calorie burned puts me closer to that target. I'd love to meet it next week, but even if I don't, I'm knocking on that door, and I want in so bad! I'm going to keep working hard, keeping pushing, and Breathe. That's all I can do.
P.S. - I go to the doctor this Friday. He will most likely write up a prescription for lab work. I'm hoping he may consider taking me off one of my diabetes meds since I've been having a few lows lately. Don't worry. I'm ok. I keep my gluclose tablets close.
