Turning A Corner?

I hope I'm turning a corner on this weight loss journey. It may be one of many corners. I won't know until I get to my destination but it's the first corner.

I exercise in the mornings, Mon - Fri, from 5:30 (or thereabouts) to about 6:30. It's a bear to get up that early, unstick my eyelids, clear the cobwebs from my eyes, and actually work up a sweat. But I do it because I know that if I don't, I don't stand a chance of meeting my health goals.

I've been pretty consistent since I bumped my workouts up to a full hour, just before Christmas. In addition to that, I've been doing a lot of walking.

And I have a 9 lb. weight loss to show for all this activity.

I realized this morning, when I missed my workout because I overslept after a late night grocery store run while the kiddies slept, one that had my husband and I falling into bed sometime after 1 and before the alarm rang at 5, that I don't like missing my AM workout.

Wuh? When did that happen?

I don't know but I was actually a little put out by not having a chance to workout today, especially since I won't have have the opportunity to make it up on Saturday. (Oldest Son is participating in an all-day Latin Forum.)

Drats!

But for me, getting to the point where I miss not working out vs. dreading the workout is turning a corner.

Maybe I can walk a few extra miles this weekend... I'm trying to drop another 5 lbs by my birthday, Feb 4th.

How are you doing?

Peace & Blessings,
Patricia
