Working, working, working

While I have not posted in a bit, my absence from my blog does not mean I am off track as in the past. I have been consistent with my meal plan--cooking and packing my meals, even packing certain portable, clean eats while traveling and finding what I need when I arrive. I am singing the tune No Butter, No Oil, No Salt when I have to dine in restaurants, and I am consistently training and getting in my cardio. In short, I am working! And yes, it is WORKING! I am leaning out and muscles are showing! I of course feel great, and I am seeing improved skin, hair and nails. I have much work to do, but I am up for the task! With results, how can I not be! Keep working Shay Shay! Keep working!

Remember that Slow and Steady Speech . . .

We all know the speech:  Tortoise and the Hare; Slow and Steady Wins the Race. I know. I KNOW!

I have been training for almost a month now.  I am seeing the fruits of my labor.  L says I am ahead of my goal, but yet I still yearn for faster results!  This is not a healthy attitude, but I know from where it stems.

I have been on this journey for almost 5 years now (next week).  While I have achieved more than I initially set out to do, I know I can achieve MORE!

This desire to achieve more is what drives me.  Yet, there are periods of time when I have detoured, and thus, still pushing toward the mark.  Once I get back on track, I can't help but think--had I not detoured, could I be where I want to be with my physique?  FRUSTRATING, YES, but MY OWN DOING!

So now, I am determined to stay on track. No detours Shay Shay! I CAN, I WILL, I MUST DO THIS FOR ME!

Oh yeah, and BE PATIENT Shay Shay!
