Birthdays, Water Weight & Day 2 of Self Discovery

So yesterday was a good day. I pounded fluids, kept my eating in line & vegan all day(ended up under cals for the day, but not too upset about it as I went SO over this past weekend), had a great Zumba class, got a new book (that I'm almost done with already) and got paid for my classes (yay for monies!)

My body shed a TON of water weight yesterday and the day before - I started out the week at 179 after my weekend of indulgences, and this morning was 173.4! Holy cow! I'm stoked! That's less than the 176lbs I weighed in at on April 1st, so I'm thrilled. I feel SO much better now that my body has released all that excess bloat! Definitely not as squishy as I was before! Definitely motivation to keep nutrition in line until the next weigh in! Hopefully I'll continue on this losing streak and have a great weigh in on Friday or Saturday (haven't decided which day yet though).

Yesterday was my mommy's birthday - but since it was in the middle of the week all we could do was call her to say HI! We are driving up this weekend to see her, which will be awesome!

I have a Zumba class tonight and can't wait for it! Its always a fabulous way to kick off the rest of the week and always great for a good sweat!

Alrighty - so here's Day 2 of my Self Discovery Blog inspired by my SparkFriend:

Today's Topic - Something You Love About Yourself

I've never been one to brag about myself, it just never makes sense to me. I relish in my accomplishments and speak openly about the joy that I have found over the past few years. Physically, I am proud of where I've come from. I take pride in the fact that my body is stronger that it ever has been in the past. That strength runs deeper than that though. Accomplishing physical goals drives mental strength and power for me. My mental strength and determination that's evolved over the past few years is one of my favorite things about myself. Though I may have doubts (reference yesterday's blog) - once I set a goal for myself, I reach it. I will push myself beyond my limits, if only to discover what those limits are.

Alrighty - that's it for now. Hope you all have a great day! Happy Wednesday!
