my body is SO sore. i gotta make sure i get some good rest tonight because this past week at the gym, holy cow, has been pretty intense. i've been lifting more than i ever have, increasing my protein intake, being very disciplined... and it feels RIGHT... it's just my muscles are sore. my trainer is so full of cool information and he made me start a journal, which, believe it or not... i've never done. mentally, i usually keep tabs on what i've ate all day, but he wants a journal of everything that goes in my mouth and what i do for exercise. he trained me for 2 hours yesterday. next sunday we're going to do that body fat percentage measurement thing and i gotta admit, even after losing 58 lbs, i'm a little bit scared to see what it'll say. i don't want to cry. LOL. but he said we're going to use it as a tool to see where i'm at and to help me stay motivated on my journey to where i want to be. good stuff. also, something that made me feel really good the other day was that as i was leaving the gym, the gym owner was like, hey..you're really dedicated. and i was like, yea. he's like, you're in here everyday sweatin it out... i said, yea, gotta. he's like, you look good. you don't have to work so hard. i was like, ehhh... lol thank you.. and i told him about how i used to be really overweight and gave him the rundown. he says, you must be SO proud of yourself. i said, yea. yea, i am. lol.

anyway, i just wanted to share that. it made me feel pretty good. i've gotta get ready for work. a little less than 2 weeks left in this month... let's make it count!

much love,

    Congrats on all those compliments from the owner! Sounds like he was flirting with you a little! LOL

    Maybe you'll consider a fitness competition someday!!!

    You ARE totally committed, and debticated. Something I have felt before, and trying to find again.

    I think that's awesome you get to do your BF measurements. Are you using the water method? I can't wait to hear how it goes, I know you're gonna do better than you think! You look great!

    What works for me is a warm bath with Epsom salts... and some ibuprofen. emoticon

    **Careful with the Epsom salts bloggers, they shouldn't be used by pregnant women, or people with high blood pressure or heart conditions.**

    But for the rest of us... heaven.

    Wendi, that is so awesome that you are taking it to the next level! I have been thinking of doing the whole body fat measureement like you are, but I am scared of all the trainers with their perfect bodies! Hahaha! Anyway, you look great and I admire your dedication! So cool the gym owner took notice of you!
