How Do I Begin Again?

I am so excited about this year’s Biggest Loser because it features former athletes who had given up on their healthy regiments and fighting back to get in shape again.  I recently find myself in the same position.  I had started a weight loss journey and have admittedly gotten off track.

I am not back where I started but I had worked so hard that I needed a reminder that it doesn’t just stop and I have to keep going!  I ask myself, what is holding you back from moving forward?  It’s mostly fear!  It’s funny because I have written about fear being a wall blocking us from what we want and here I am, in fear.

I have a big fear of failing.  What if I fail at getting back on track?  What if I start up boot camp again and everyone I had worked out with is so far ahead of me now?  I am a naturally competitive person but need to remind myself that my only competition is me!

So, here I am reminding myself and you not to be afraid and the only person who can make a change is you.  Who wants to get back on track with me?  I’ll be your workout buddy near or far.  Let’s do this!

I Did It!

In the beginning of the summer I set a goal for myself of completing the Jersey Shore Golden Grand Prix.  It was a fairly lofty goal since I had never done any five mile races and had to complete two!  The races to complete were the Spring Lake 5, George Sheehan Classic, Belmar 5, Asbury Park 5K and the Pier House 5K and I did it!

I had moments that I shed a tear because it was so hot and didn’t think I could do it but I am most thankful for my mom being there at each one.  Having the support of a loved one is so important and I couldn’t have done it without her.

Thanks Mom!!
