This is why I chose to start to blog. I needed a way to be motivated, keep a journal, and keep going on my life long journey towards health.
I have recently started to jog on the treadmill. Today, I did,
1. 25 min of cardio
2. 30 push-ups,
3. 5 min floor ab workout.
It feels great to use my muscles. While I was doing push-ups I was reminded of the no excuses theme and someone that I got to meet this summer, Ali Vincent. She was the first female Biggest Loser winner. The season that she was on was inspirational to me. She was a former swimmer who let the weight pile on. I could identify with that. I did swim team for many years and after having children struggled with finding a routine for a physical activity.
It was a great day, in August of 2011. I did a mini triathlon and got to meet Ali. She lives in Spokane and did the West Plains Wunder Woman Triathlon. I had set the goal to do the triathlon in January. I let the ladies at my church know that they could join me if they were interested. We did most of our training separate, but encouraged one another. When they day came it, was an amazing, friendship building, wonderful day. I got to participate with six of my dear friends including my sister in- law. My sister in-law and I posed for a picture by the bikes.
My friends, eat well, live well, and make no excuses today.
