- First and foremost, I feel GOOOOOOD! Not just okay or pretty good, I feel awesome.
- I feel stronger. This morning I did 50 pull ups. Not just that, I actually decreased the size of resistance bands I've been using to help me do them. This seems like a small thing, but it is actually a really big thing. It has been on my bucket list for a long time to be able to do just one unassisted pull up and it seems like it might actually be possible with some really hard work.
- My cardio capacity is increasing. Things that were impossible just a few weeks ago are happening now. They happen SLOWLY, but they happen.
- Saturday I wore a dress that I had slowly started to phase out of my rotation because it was too tight. It was decidedly NOT too tight on Friday.
I have a very real goal of losing weight for a specific reason, namely hang gliding while in Rio. I absolutely have to lose pounds if I'm going to do that. What I have to decide is whether what I'm doing now is correct and my body will catch up OR whether I need to make some sort of change.
I joined Amy's next diet bet for a little extra immediate motivation. Wish me luck!
