Tonight will be a short post, because I just finished homework and I’m exhausted (and still hormonal – sorry for the TMI).

However, I just had to share that today was a downright amazing day.

It started off like this:

Lowest weight as an adult

And ended like this:

Week 3 - Day 1 of C25K FINALLY complete.  Never thought I would conquer a 3 minute run.

I couldn’t focus on anything at work.  My brain kept firing off, “I’m finally past 262.  I’m almost out of the 260’s.  I am, literally, the smallest I have ever been since I was a teenager.”  All of a sudden I was overcome again with that feeling of assurance that I was going to see this through.  That this was my life now and I was enjoying it!  I didn’t dread going to the gym anymore, I didn’t roll my eyes and groan at the sight of carrots, I no longer scoff at the idea of protein shakes (thanks Angela!)  I felt like I glowed the entire day.

The feeling carried through to the gym and I was bound and determined to finish that run.

It hurt.

I felt like I was going to throw up.

I had to slow down.

But I did it.  I might have been hanging onto the sides of the treadmill for the last 30 seconds, but I made it.

And I’m never looking back.

Today’s quote was inspired by my wonderful new friends at Fit Nation Baby!

“There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.”  ~Norman Vincent Peale
