Beyond Limitations

My schedule is just swamped right now! I really want to do more on the exercise front in particular, but I am coming up short on my free time. It is really just a couple of bigger projects that are filling my days, so hopefully when those are done I will settle back into a longer workout program. When I started I was managing an average of probably a couple of hours of activity per day, but lately I am struggling to do any more than thirty minutes.

On the plus side, I have to say that a half hour of exercise is a lot more than I ever used to do! A very short time ago, I would have balked at the thought of doing any type of workout every single day, much less enjoying them and wishing I could do more. It’s incredible to think about just how far I have come on this journey when considering the mental aspects of it.

The different perspective that I currently have is very freeing; I can not even begin to imagine returning to the restrictive confines of my previously obese body! I now have thoughts, feelings, and dreams that - a year ago - I didn’t even know could exist. I am so happy to be in this place! I know that I will never return to the many impediments I placed upon myself by covering my body with layer upon layer of fat and limitations.

If you missed it, I am doing a small but fun giveaway in honour of Saint Patrick’s Day and the way I seem to be exhibiting the luck of the Irish in the weight loss arena!

- 9 glasses of water
- 1 banana
- 1 wrap on a soft tortilla shell with deli ham, spicy cheese, dried cranberries, spinach, fat free Miracle Whip, mustard, and pepper
- 1 golden delicious apple with cinnamon
- 2 cups red grapes
- 3/4 cup fat free peach yogurt with 1 cup Vector cereal
- 6 pan-fried cheese and potato perogies with bacon, onion, and light sour cream
- 2 cups heated blueberries with cinnamon and sugar

- 35 minutes of the C25K program (Day 2 of Week 7)


  1. ditto and amen.
    I feel the same today...we seem to be on the same wavelength lately.

  2. I FEEL YOU on the life conspiring to derail us
    I wish you were coming to fitbloggin (many reasons :)) as Im doing a fast mizfit muscles in minutes with tips for QUICK HOME (or office :)) resistance routine.

    I may see if some one can film it?


  3. Yes, must be something in the air today! I'm trying to figure out how exactly I'm to fit in a short run. Which I feel is a must considering what the day is going to be like weatherwise! Would be sad to miss the great weather opportunity.

  4. Life can really try to derail us. You are doing great with the time you have! As long as you keep moving forward.. you are moving! :-)

  5. I haven't visited your blog lately...been swamped. However, I see you're up to a 105 lb loss. Super job :)

  6. Life can really get in the way of living sometimes, can't it?!

    Miz, I wish I could be there too! There's another thing I never thought I'd hear myself say: Wanting to go to a fitness conference? Wow, have I changed!
