This Journey Takes Hard Work and I'm Willing To Put In The Work!!!!!

Sunday, October 23, 2011

I have been on this journey for some time now. When I started this journey i was 320 pounds, I am now 187.7 ( emoticon emoticon emoticon). When I started I thought my magic number was 185, because I never wanted to be skinny because I love my thickness, and it is perfectly fine to be thick as long as I am healthy. As I approached 195 I knew that 185 was not the number that I was looking for so I changed my goal weight to 160. I am 27.7 pounds away from my goal and I intend on being at 160 by December 31, 2011. But right now I have a fire lit under my a** that I know that if I put in the work I can and will accomplish my goal.

I get asked all the time "what is your secret or tell me exactly what you do". My answer is simple......hard work and counting every calorie. Then its how much do you work out? My goal is 2 hours of cardio and 1 hour of strength per day, do I always get that in no; but this is a journey that we start over with passing day. My friends, family, co-workers all tell me the same thing you work out to much....however I let that roll off my back and simply tell them you work for what you want and right now I am at a point in my life where this is about me and I want this so I have to work for it.

To my spark friends no matter where you are on this journey, you will have good days/weeks/months as well as bad days/weeks/months but just never give up!! When u fall off get back up, jump back in and press forward it will all be worth it in the end.
