Heeeelllllooo Fitness Friday! I am so excited about my Fitness Friday post today! First things, first! I ran the Carlsbad Half Marathon on Sunday (Race report coming early next week! Stay tuned!) and broke my long streak of not running. I’m finally bad to running and feeling fantastic about it! I’ve run two training runs since the half. I’m now on my way to training for the La Jolla Half in March. I’ve come a long way, from barely being able to run in January 2015.
My friend and I started running at 5:30 a.m. this week, in preparation of the La Jolla Half. She’s much faster than me, but we’re making it work. We’re running the hills around our neighborhood and I’m feeling stronger already. The thing about the La Jolla Half, is that it’s really hilly. In March of 2009, I attempted the La Jolla Half and had to drop out of the race about 3 miles in. That following August, I completed the AFC Half, but the La Jolla Half DNF always haunts me. This year, my plan is to tackle the La Jolla Half and make it my bitch!
My second hooray of the day is that I’ve hit 30 pounds of weight loss. I cannot believe it! It’s fantastic! I LOVE Lindora! They’ve done so much to help me be successful and I’ve not seen numbers this low on the scale in 4 or more years. That’s amazing! I know I will always get the support I need when I go in for my visits. They help me identify what I’m doing right and what I might need to change to be successful. I have gained so much confidence. I feel so good! I am wearing clothes I haven’t worn in years and fitting nicely in clothes I’ve been wearing that were ill-fitting. It’s such a great feeling and I’m so grateful for discovering Lindora. The methods I was using before just weren’t working and I’d all but given up. I had really resigned myself to my weight, until I got acquainted with the program.
Today, I’m excited about my fitness level. I’m excited about running. I’m excited about my health. I recently went to see my doctor and found that my lab work was all improved from the previous year. Losing more than 10% of my body weight was enough to send my bad cholesterol and good cholesterol in the right directions, my triglycerides are down, and everything is well-within normal limits. My already low blood pressure has also gone even lower!
I’m so thankful to have such progress and I’m so grateful to have my life back!
What are YOU grateful for this week?
Have a great weekend!
