The last week has been peaks and valleys. I’ve been knocked down. But I was picked up, supported and encouraged by so many of you! I think it’s safe to say to we’ve all had these moments in our lives that break us a little but in the end make us strong. I will forever remember this week as one of them.
The outpouring of support especially from so many in the Syracuse area makes me smile. I love central new york. I might not have been born or raised here but it really has become my home. I’m in awe of all the comments, concerns and kindness that came out of such a terrible experience. I’m slowly making my way through thecomments and responding to each of you personally.
From the bottom of my heart:
In the spirit of the perky, inspiring place on the web I call home….I’m resuming with things as usual, I’ve said my piece.
First let me share with you the AWESOMENESS that is group P90X.
It’s true when a door closes a window opens and I can’t thank the Skaneateles YMCA enough for letting me join in this summer shape up session. It started last week so I’m jumping in a little late. I am so thankful. My first day was Wednesday. We spent the entire class outside enjoying the sunshine. There were sprints, hill climbs of various forms, and lots of new moves for me to learn. Today I went again it was an outside class with weights, exercise bands and although I pictured it I did just fine without using my yoga mat.
The classes are tough, but modifications both for more and less intensity are offered for every movement. I’m kinda of the new kid, since many of the people doing this session just completed the full 90 day program.I can’t wait to see the results from this program. There are measurements and weigh-ins! Today was the first time in months I saw what I actually weigh….and get this it’s 10 pounds less than I thought!!!! SCORE! Not that numbers are on a scale should ever determine your happiness but I’ve been working hard and was happy to see some results. I don’t own a scale so I never really know.
Now let’s talk whole30. Guys I have failed you. I’m an emotional eater and there were a few oops moments this week. Mainly Tuesday, I ate cheese (not whole 30) I had a coffee with creamer (not whole 30) and a doughnut (Fo-SHO not whole30) Ok so this was ALL I ate all day long which I DO NOT endorse! But I was a mess and eat crying is really hard to do.
After my day of hiccups, I’m back to normal!
Summer salads are back and I couldn’t be happier. Blackberries, Strawberries, Spinach, Lettuce, Sliced Rotisserie Chicken!
After the week that was for me, this poster really mirrors my feelings not just about fitness and health but about life. There is a lot to see and do but what’s even better is sharing the experience with others and inspiring them to try something new.
Question of the day: Who inspires you?
