What is sticking in my diet and what I am letting go of:
- I’m still not going crazy with the cheese – I’ve had very little of it and I’m still not missing it
- Milk and sour cream – still out
- Honey has made its drizzly way back to my peanut butter and bananas in the morning on some days
- I’m taking it easy on the eggs for a little while. Me and eggs need a break!!!
Dale is almost there on being ok with the healthier diet. He’s been hitting the gym pretty hard these last few days. It is so good to see that fire in his eyes again! He's been so supportive of my latest adventure. Maybe I can talk him into getting out there with us soon. Ward and Bryce (and any other guys) - come out and I'm sure Dale will too. Don't be intimidated by us ladies!!
Some of the locals in the group met up Saturday for a group workout. Wait. Backup! When I finally pulled the trigger and took the steps to get this thing off the ground without a solid plan and without being fully ready I was expecting a few to bite. I was nervous that no one would see value in what I had in mind, but I had people reaching out to me left and right asking for advice along my own journey. They were asking me to hold them accountable. They were pretty much bearing all to me and looking for encouragement and support. I wanted to help, but I just didn't know exactly what to do or how other than letting them know I would do what I can and we will see where it goes. I figured I had enough experience in sports and in the gym that I could put some workouts together that I planned to do myself anyway and go from there. Dale has been beside me the whole time. He has offered advice and workout ideas and I love it!
So I woke up last Saturday morning nervous like I was getting ready to go run a race. I guess I was just nervous about doing something like this that I was responsible for and had to make it worth other people's time to be there and I didn't want to disappoint anyone. I started out the door to walk across the street where we agreed to meet. I looked over at the parking lot, which was FULL to my surprise. I thought to myself, "I would schedule people to meet me here when there is a fishing tournament going on." No, there was no fishing tournament, that was my crew. WOW! I was amazed, happy, scared, nervous. 11 women came to workout from all different kinds of fitness levels. I was so encouraged.
