I woke up with sore arms and abs from the 30 Day Shred, ouch!, but it's, also, a good feeling because I know my body is getting something out of the workout! I'm hoping to see a difference in my arms at the end of this month because I'm not liking my flabby arms, at all!! This is what I'm dealing with:
Yup, that's my flabby underarm! If I flap hard enough I just might be able to fly! It doesn't even look like an arm - more like a thigh! I hate it, and I fear the flab (flap?) is there forever because it's just loose skin, and loose skin can't be tightened, right? I, often, worry about the loose skin I'm going to have - my arms, my boobs, my inner thighs, and my stomach. My stomach is going to be bad....really, really bad! But I can't let the fear of loose skin stop me from losing this weight because the most important thing is my health - not my appearance, right? Still, I have to admit that, sometimes, I get so mad at myself for letting this happen to my body - for ruining it. I know I need to get past it though - it is what it is, and I have to move on. I love this quote:
"Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it." ~ William Durant
I need to remember this when I get the urge to start beating myself up.
I did the 30 Day Shred (sore abs, arms, and all) first thing this morning, and I took a 1 mile walk outside with my girls. I still need to do 3 miles on the treadmill which will include my C25K training - I will get that done in a couple hours, FOR SURE! I will NOT skip my workouts - it's not an option!
