All I have to say is WOW! I feel like I have been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions lately. I am working out and pushing myself harder than I have in my entire life! We’ve made it through the first week and boy does every muscle in my body feel it. I’ve never been so happy to hurt so much! You know what they say, no pain no gain! That sure is the case here. Every day that goes by I think it gets a little easier for me. I just can’t express how thrilling this whole competition has been.
One momentous occasion we had was our official weigh in…YIKES! I hope to never see that number on the scale again. It definitely scared me but I think it’s going to make me work that much harder. Nobody said this was going to be easy. I think the hardest thing I am dealing with so far is trying to completely change my diet. I never thought I ate that unhealthy but I am quickly realizing I was very wrong. As much as I would love to win, my biggest goal is to make a lifestyle change. I want eating healthy food and working out to be a part of who I am. I already have more energy and stamina than I did when I started! It’s great to have so many people supporting me and cheering me on. I think I might be the luckiest girl in the world.
