I have survived my first week of exercise. I was doing very good until I broke my ankle last Fall. I prefer to recover and get back to it the next day instead of a few months. I have learned from that mistake.

I did intervals 3x and resistance 2x. Also did some walking.

So while I don't look like this crazy lady, I feel like I do.
All this brings me to ask, "How did I get here and how come I didn't take action before?" I truly think that it's just like watching your children grow. I mean you are aware that the kids are growing, but you see them everyday and don't really notice. That is certainly the same for me not growing up but growing out.

I do believe that the mind is more powerful than we give it credit. I never really really looked at myself until a few months ago. "This isn't me", I feel like the same person just have to buy bigger clothes. I don't feel "big", I feel like I did when I was in the military. Such deception has brought me to this point of realization.

I have held myself in a prison. While this subject isn't something that I am proud of, nor am I trying to make anyone feel bad or guilty or anything. I figured that if I am able to see the real me and share the real me, perhaps someone could be inspired.

Addiction is a terribly difficult disease. Some are addicted to smoking, drinking, drugs, lying, sex, killing people.... I think it's all the same and just as hard to quit.
My goals for the week:
~Intervals 3x
~Resistance 2x
~Walk dogs 5x
~Consume 1600-1800 calories a day
So here is my journey, take it for what its worth to you. Feel free to post your own goals for this week.

It is my goal to reach 2010 with a body much lighter, healthier and more efficient. What's your goal for this year?
