Working on my fitness...

Happy Monday!
I'm kicking off a great week and hope you are too!

If have been hanging out with me on my facebook page ( then you know I've made my physical health a priority. I'm so jazzed after two weeks, I laugh that I'm 14 days "clean"! The energy I have is AMAZING! Why didn't I eat healthy and workout before?! 

Um, because I was the "I have NO time" excuse girl! Hell, I have a busy marketing consulting business, husband that works 70+ hours a week, making my 3.5yo little man a second job as well...yadda yadda, I was sure I had no time....but I do, because I made it a priority. Thank God for my supporting and loving husband who urged me to get to the gym, for my OWN sanity since every time I made a bad decision with food/fitness, I felt bad and knew better. 

Obviously, I'm going to lose weight, I was at 327.8lbs and my back was hurting, my knees hurting and my heart pounding so hard. But just after two weeks of swimming laps and treadmill, I feel a million times better and it's because I'm doing what's RIGHT. Feels good to do the right thing. 

Instead of talking about how much weight I have lost, I think the most important barometer of success to share is my physical health milestones. Day 1, I could only swim 10 laps on 30 minutes and by day 14, I swam 16! WOOHOO! And, I made it 34 minutes on the treadmill at 3.5 at 3 incline and didn't die yesterday. LOL 

SO! with all this, I had to go buy some workout clothes!! I found this jacket and pants at Avenue, shoes are Nike. Since my number one fashion requirement is comfort, I think I could LIVE in activewear! I LOVE this white jacket and black zipper, some style and yet still comfy.
