Week Five - plugging along!
Wednesday, June 04, 2008
So I'm plugging along...still have a sore throat which is annoying but fine I guess. It's better than a cold so I shouldn't complain. This Friday is the 12hr Cancer Relay and I'm really looking forward to it. Our team is the Steppers "Steppin' Up to the Plate" and we're raised close to $3000 for the Cdn Cancer Society. The relay is a 12hr walk and someone from your team needs to be walking at all times. It's from 7pm to 7am. I do it in Memory of my father who died 4 years ago of Lung Cancer. It's quite an emotional night. Not to mention quite a work-out. Last year I walked about 3hrs so I'm not killing myself with cardio this week as I know I'll be doing most of it on Friday lol. But I have been continuing to focus on my muscle work. It's been really intense. I caught a look at my back in the mirror when drying my hair yesterday and I can see some definition in my back - woohoo. My arms are also getting bigger and more defined. My belly is well...still the same but I'm working it and I know as it was the biggest part of me and the least defined it will take longer so I won't give up...I just work hard and have to have faith that I WILL get there. Slowly but surely. When I feel negative I try to make a mental note so that when I feel like pigging out I remember that feeling. It helps sometimes - lol. So...ONWARD and UPWARD!
