Hitting that Mark

Well the time has come…I have accomplished something that I personally didn’t think was going to be possible: I hit the 100 pound mark! It took me 410 days but I am so proud to say that I did it. There is a lot of physical and emotional ups and downs that come with an accomplishment like this but every single thing was worth it. I am so happy and comfortable with myself now, I really feel that I am in such a good place mentally, physically, and emotionally. One hundred pounds is a big accomplishment and puts me on the scale at 168 which is on the higher side of healthy for my frame but I don’t want my journey to be over yet.

I still have big plans for myself this year, I want to continue my physical transformation into being slim muscular and most of all fit. I want to be strong, I want to be able to go outdoors and be sporty. I want to be able to go on a strenuous hike or climb a tree. I want to have an athletic build for the first time in my life. Since I was a child I dreamed of having a sporty physique but I never pushed myself to try and get there. For me it was just easier to dream and hope that maybe one day I would wake up with one. Unfortunately that will never happen to anyone, but seeing myself now that dream just seems a little bit more reachable to me. By the end of this year I want to be between 145 and 150 pounds with an athletic build. I know I can get there, I just have to continue using my determination and my trainer to get there! Speaking of my trainer I need to give a special shout out to Megan at City Sports for continuing to work with me and help me meet and maintain my goals. She pushes me past the part of myself that wants to take the easy road. When I didn’t think I could do 50 lb hip thrusts she showed me that not only could I do one set but I could do 4 and super-set them with some hammer curls too! I know with my type of personality I need that push to help get me where I am going and where I want to be.
