My first week in, I've played around with the Trim360 food, made exercise a priority, took my vitamins, lotsa stretching, lotsa water, decent sleep and BAMN!
What?!?!?! No way, so I'm a quarter of the way to my goal. This is gonna be easy ;-)
OK, OK - so I know it's not really going to be easy. Those 5.4 come from a lot of different sources - water being one.
Yet I'm anchored by all of that measured trepidation:
"Great well that was easy, but can I sustain it?"
"Good job, but don't count your chickens..."
"Hooray, but can you do it again?"
For today, just today - THERE IS NO BUT. I worked my awesome curvy BUTT off this week, ate less calories than I burned, exercised hard, committed to my success and that deserves a Woot Woot.
Yesterday an administrator/mentor/friend of mine at UCLA and I were talking about my second year in "learn to be a business person" school, and I thanked her for always being supportive of my achievements. You see, my first semester's grades were a little "rocky" and I had some recovery work to do in order to get my GPA back up. She and the dean had made it clear, grades up or Summers is out!
I replied that getting an A in graduate school for a writer when competing against finance folks was like trying to win a marathon against a Kenyan.... but I'd give it a try. So I fought like hell, hired tutors, gave it the time needed, learned how to study again and guess what - I made it to year two, and I've even got a few As to show for it!
She reminded me that not only our challenges should be noted, but also our successes should be applauded. With hard work, effort, determination,
So that's it - This week, I lost over 5 pounds. I clocked over twenty miles and I had fun. How'd you do this week? Comment if you'd like, but even if you don't know you've got an uncouched, no buts about it, CONGRATULATIONS for whatever you achieved from me!
