Extreme Makeover: Me Edition — August 5th

Can you believe it’s August already? This summer has just flown by. If you haven’t hear of Extreme Makeover: Me Edition before, it’s a group of women started by the lovely Amber who are supporting each other as we try to get healthier. Amber’s question this week is:

How is your progress?
{Weight, body, mind, etc.}

  • I am feeling really strong. I have been doing my trail about 6 times a week. I started off by walking it. When I got to the bottom and then had to go all the way back up, sometimes I really thought I wouldn’t make it. But I did and each day I was able to go a little faster.
  • Now I am running most of the trail. There is a huge hill halfway through that is so hard to get up — people call it “Heart Attack Hill”. When I started I literally had to stop half way up to catch my breath. Then a few weeks later I could get up but had to stop at the top to catch my breath. Now I can get up really fast and keep going at the top without stopping. So it makes me feel really strong.
  • I look forward to my time each day. If I miss a day I am really disappointed. It has become “me” time and I love it!
  • As far as results, I am down 4 pounds from the start. But the biggest difference is the change in my body. I can see definition and muscle tone.I use my arm weights every day. I do different exercises as I walk and run along. I have really noticed a difference in my arms, back and abs.

Go on over to Amber’s and join this group of supportive friends!
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
