Stats and a little rant

So today was the last day of boot camp and we had to redo our mile run, jump roping, and push from the first week. The first week I did 14 push ups, 64 jump ropes, and a mile in 16 min and 21 seconds .. but today I did 45 push ups, 104 jump ropes, and a mile in 14 min and 56 minutes. Yay!! I improved!! I am about to start training to do a half marathon with a friend of mine next Spring!! Now we just have to wait and see what her scale says today when we weigh and do our measurements!! 

I hate when people complain about not seeing the results they want. When you join a challenge stick through with it! Obviously we havent been successful in previous attempts to get fit, lose weight, and maintain a healthy lifestyle in the past for some reason or another. Excuses WILL NOT get you anywhere. If you would rather sit and watch tv on the couch instead of working out for 30 minutes in the day that is your business, but in the long run you will be adding years to your life and your heart will be so much more healthier. If you do what you always do, you will get what you always got.  Don't complain about not having time .. make time!! I don't like getting up at 4:30am to workout, but it has become a priority to me to get healthy. Don't half a** things. My doing that is why I am in this silly predicament. One day I will be able to look back and say, man it stunk having to get up early and workout, it stunk not being able to eat those french fries, but man I look hot and I feel great!

So .. I will keep going and I will keep working out whether it takes me a  year to get to my ideal weight or 6 months perseverance is the key!! Failure is just not an option this time!
