"Life begins outside your comfort zone". Starting Year #2...this time I WILL make it
LOVE that quote. Watched extreme makeover weight loss edition yesterday and the girl reminded me so much of me. Chris Powell told her that Life starts outside your comfort zone and it struck a chord with me. I rarely want to push past my comfort zone and end up on the couch instead, watching TV, watching everyone else's life (or pretend life) as mine is passing me by. I want my life back. I WANT to be healthy again and I want so much more for me.
Some may remember that I had a critical illness 2 years ago, and I am so lucky to be alive. I can't waste another day that God has blessed me with.
I had started a journal last year marking 365 days of healthy choices. I made it pretty far, but then faltered. This time I am here to stay. I am going to complete this year. I have missed my journal and my WISH friends... alot!
So.... What inspired me this time. Not only did Chris Powell inspire me, but we also spent some time looking at videos from 10 years ago. Ughhh, I can't believe I looked that bad, AND I weigh more now. I also know how unhappy I have been with myself, for letting this weight get so out of control, and skipping out on life.
This morning I ws tempted to not pack my work out clothes and just "take it easy" today. However I thought it through and had truly had enough. I packed my clothes and decided after work I would go work out, and I did!
Out of my comfort zone today for certain.
Went to work out, so I didn't sit on the couch with chips and dip.
At the work out actually ran for 1 minute straight! (Did the elliptical and walked on treadmill for a few minutes and then decided to push out of the comfort zone and did the 1 min. run.)
Went to buy stuff for dinner and actually craved an apple for after work out snack. Who knew that I would actually crave an apple!
Started my journal for year #2
Went for walk tonight. LOVED seeing the leaves on the trees so colorful, kicked around some fallen leaves (love that sound), and just enjoyed feeling "alive"!
What a great day!
