|A perfect moment|
It was really almost magical...we hiked down to the first waterfall and the kids LOVED it! the water was ice cold and it felt amazing. I was a little nervous about the hike up but the kids helped distract me....eventually it was time to head back up the steep hills to the parking lot. Now I will admit there were times I felt winded...but NOTHING like before. In fact, most of the way back I was carrying a 35 pound weight - LUCAS! If the kids weren't with us, I would have begged Jason to continue on....its moments like those where I am so proud of myself....I felt so strong! I woke up this morning feeling fine - but poor Jason woke up with achy legs!
|I could have done better|
This time I have got to fight it. I want to feel strong and proud. I want to be able to hike with my kids..to show them what healthy living should look like.
I know I write about Geaux Crossfit and how amazing it is..but seriously. On Friday I told Amber what was going on with my diet and struggle. She has been doing the strict paleo thing for 45+ days now - with the gym's first paleo challenge and now she's in the middle of the second paleo challenge. I know she wants a break. She told me that she would stand by my if I want to start strict again on August 1. She would do it too and we could hold each other accountable. I am just so truly, truly thankful...I never thought that it would be a gym that would change my life. Geaux Crossfit is not only changing my life, it is saving it. Seriously.
I had a check up with my doctor last week - she was amazed with my weight loss...she asked me why now? After years of her telling me how important it was to lose weight, why did it suddenly click in my head? I think she was surprised when I told her it was the gym I have been going to....
I get my blood work results back tomorrow - she checked my insulin, cholesterol, etc to see my improvements. I cannot wait to find out!
