Tonight after work I was deciding whether or not to workout? After watching Extreme makeover, Chris Powell is so inspiring! I decided to workout to Jillian Micheals Kickboxing. All it took for me to get moving was to press Play! So simple but the hardest step to take! The kicking and punching isn't hard to do. I actually enjoy it. The choice to hit play, my mind going back and forth, negotiation, that's the hardest part. But once you do it feels fantastic!
After having a long weekend here in Canada. I lost weight not tons but enough to count! O.8 pounds to be exact. I am proud of that and you want to know why? I made a choice to lose weight this week and I did. I worked out and ate a balance diet. I went camping over night to Murphy's point an hour outside Ottawa. It was the first time Rob and I have been there. We met up with our friends and some of their children. 9 adults and 7 kids! The whole week I was deciding whether or not to drink?? I was still indecisive the day of but I did buy some alcohol just incase ;). A low cal option at that. We arrived around 3pm and by 530pm. My friends were starting supper. I wasn't hungry yet instead I told Rob I am going to have some drinks tonight so I think this is a good time to go for a run. I slipped on my runners put on some music and away I went! The trail was beautiful I wish I would have stopped to take some pictures. It was a truly calming experience. It felt like I was in a small town. People waving at me as I ran by. I think I ran about 4km. When I got back to the campsite I was able to enjoy supper, bond with my adorable friends kids and have adult time with drinks and a few marshmallow ;) and to look up at the stars and see a million of them. I forgot how different the stars look in the country. It's all about choices. Somedays will be harder then others but it felt good to have a healthy balance.
Have a good week everyone.
