Training Day 2 & still at it!

January 4, 2010

So it's training day 2 toward My Pink Goal & I've successfully worked out & watched my diet.  Sadly, I've given up in less than 2 days before so this is a win.  I spent yesterday setting up this blog, my fundraising page (see link at the bottom of the page), & my Facebook fan page.  Yes, My Pink Goal even has a fan page.  I'm using the "My Fitness Pal" Ap for my iphone to keep track of workouts, weight, and what I'm eating.  Nothing like forcing myself to be accountable! :)

The coolest part to day two of my training is that during prayer & meditation today I was reminded of the need to not judge myself so harshly.  I've tried everything to get fit &/or loose weight, each time feeling like a failure.  But this time this goal is a lot bigger than me.  Again, dramatic I know but it is.  This is about giving back to the women in my life, to the health of our community, and to the amazing men who have supported the women in their lives through the hardships of breast cancer.  2 of my girlfriends have emailed today to say they're considering signing up in Chicago & one in Tampa.  Even if they choose not to complete the walk, I know they'll be there in support of me & that's waaaayyyy coool. 

So I wrap up day 2 slightly less judgemental of myself, feeling supported by so many of my friends/family, & a touch sore (thank God for Advil).  I can see my pink goal in the distance & know that its going to be awesome to achieve it!
