Still Striving to improve myself, one board break at a time

Commitment to myself.

Loreal has a commercial that says “because I’m worth it!”  That is me.  I am completely worth it.

I have discovered the right combination of motivation and accountability.  I’m being held accountable for my actions by a few close friends (the ones I trust to not nag but who will kick my butt if I slack off) and I do believe it’s paying off. Perseverance. 

I have decided that the other people in my life who matter are the ones who cheer me on and are genuinely interested in what I’m doing. They ask questions. They support.  That’s what it’s about. I am a lot happier this week and have made no excuses for anything.  I came home from the doctor’s office on Tuesday with dilated eyes and still hit up my workout. Wednesday, I had to take my daughter to get fish for a school project. I worked out first, then we went. She knew that my workout was important and waited me out. 

My commitment to myself includes making sure I get plenty of rest, do my workouts and eat better. I consider myself a work in progress. I am pleased with the small amount of progress I tell myself I’m seeing.  I was able to show the family tonight that I have a bit of muscle definition under my rib cage.  Some of that is from the belly dancing, I’m sure, but it’s nice to see it coming back! I’m pretty pleased with that.

  1. Are you using the wii fit? I thought I remembered you having one of those.

    • I’m using a dvd set I got last year called Hip Hop Abs. It’s really fun and low intensity, but HARD!! I’m enjoying it. It’s all dance and has multiple sections. Today’s section was “Ab Sculpt”. It makes you THINK!! The Wii Fit will be brought out later today. Tomorrow is supposed to be a ‘rest day’ in the challenge group I belong to, so I may do wii fit then instead. That would be fun!
