Yesterday started with putting on my new outfit from PVBody and doing some cardio on the elliptical.
I was pretty nervous and anxious and EXCITED and anxious all morning because I had a Noon appointment with Diana.
Just walking back in that gym and feeling the energy of HitchFit set my nerves at ease.
Diana and I have worked together on and off since 2009 so she is such a source of comfort and positivity. I trust her. We sat and talked for a bit about my goals and how she was going to help me reach them.
Time to swallow that big, fat pride pill
and strip down for measurements and pictures.
I wanted to cry a little bit.
I felt like I had failed. And not just failed myself, but failed Diana and Justin….and all of YOU!
Those feelings were quickly replaced with a FIRE! This is MY body. I am not doing this for anyone else. I made mistakes coming out of prep last time. I will NOT make those same mistakes again.
Where I am now.
I am starting out 10 lbs heavier than I started my prep in 2011 and about the same body fat percentage, but I am starting four months earlier.
I feel pumped and READY!
The mental switch has been flipped to ON!
So, here I go!
Ready to take this journey with me again?
Oh, wait, I’m done yet, the day gets better.
So, I come home PUUUUUMPED. Endorphins were pumping like I had just ran 5 miles! I was ready to start prep immediately! Get the camera. Let’s take some pictures so I can start my progress picture page for 2013.
Let’s do this.
And then I remembered, we were going out last night with Justin’s Dad and Stepmom before they head to Arizona for the Winter.
We went to our favorite wine place and did a tasting.
And then headed to an Italian restaurant that the four of us love. I had chicken scallopini with eggplant parmesan on the side instead of pasta.
Oh well. I’ll start prep tomorrow (which is TODAY)!
