I think it's time...

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

To make the transition into maintenance and forgo the idea of shooting for the 125lb scale mark. My body is making great strides with the muscle building and strength side of things, which I'm quite pleased with. I'm doing Dead Lifts, currently using 57 pounds, after increasing from 42 pounds, just days ago. Today I picked up 30 more pounds of weights at a Thrift Store and will make my 1st attempt of lifting 87 pounds, tomorrow! emoticon

Plus, the scale is continuing to stay steady at 130lbs(probably due to the muscle increases), thus far, so this may just be a sign that this number is my BODY'S choice and I'd best accept it. The funny part is...I AM pretty darn happy with where I am, presently. I look fit..I feel fit..I am 100% satisfied with fitting into size 4 pants (depending on the designer, of course)..And the majority of ME (other than my HEAD) is satisfied with being 130lbs.

So what's the problem?? emoticon

Honestly, as of this evening...it has escaped me! emoticonJust standing here on my treadmill, preparing to begin my HIIT, the CRAVING to seek for that 125lb mark, suddenly lost its hold on me! I feel REALLY content with where I'm at, at this moment. emoticon

MAINTENANCE...READY OR NOT...HERE I AM!!!! emoticon
