Workin' on my fitness

So I know I've blogged about this before, but I am trying to lose weight. I started in Jan of 2008 and I have lost 40 pounds now. Obviously the weight came off really slow. But I was trying to do small changes that I could keep up forever. I am confident that I will be able to keep the weight off this way. Anyway, I still want to lose around 7 more pounds. I am 5'7" and my goal is a size 8. I can get that size on right now. But it is too tight to actually wear and be comfortable.

I worked up to exercising 6 days a week. Then May happened. :( We were house hunting, there was my birthday, mothers day, graduation and of course, bronchitis. (which lingered well into June.) I don't really like excuses when it comes to exercising. You just need to suck it up and do it. And here I am, and I haven't really had a good workout in over a month! Yikes!

So I went to the gym today and WOW! I lost a ton of my strength already! I'm hoping it comes back soon!! I was able to jog for 30 mins only a month ago, and now? I had to walk for 30 mins and I was sweaty and slightly out of breath! I know having such a bad lung infection is part of it, but really?! How pathetic!!! After that I took Rex for a little walk and came back and did level 1 of the 30 Day Shred. That Jillian is killer normally, but of course it was really bad getting back into it. Boo!

Oh well. There's nothing I can do now but to dive back into it tomorrow and keep going strong until I'm back up to my previous level of fitness!

Also, Tom comes home in 2 days. I miss him.

Hang in there! The important thing you should take away from all that is that you are back on track. You'll get to your goal. Just stay focused! :)
