Last night I was standing infront of the mirror and I thought "Hey, I look thinner". I haven't lost any inches, but I felt like I looked thinner because I felt thinner. I felt like I was more fit and healthier. I'm understanding why Chris spends so much time checking himself out in the mirror. He has even taken to subconsciously posing when he stands up from the couch before he proceeds with his mission. It's actually quite funny to watch when he stands up like he is Superman called to action.
I was at the chiropractor today and as I was leaving she stopped me and said "you're looking good, did you lose weight?" It brightened my day. I am feeling more confident (I know, who thought that was possible?) so I am portraying that, standing taller, and I'm radiating health. People are noticing. I am noticing. I'm only 10 days into my challenge and I already know the answer to my question is yes, I am happier.
It hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows though. I have made late night trips to the gym because I put off going for as long as possible in the day. I've made extra trips into town because I squeezed something in before a workout. And, tonight I went for a bare minimum swim of 12 laps (almost not worth going, but I went which is an improvement) because my back is killing me and my shins are sore from yesterday's run. Did I mention I ran a full kilometre before walking? Or that I ran 7.5 minutes straight at 5mph? Or that I beat my record by several minutes completing my 3 miles in 24 minutes? That's right...I'm awesome!!!
