Not Quite 365 Days – Journal Entry – November 27 through December 261

Nov 27 – December 31 –  Days 298 thru 361

A Year of Results
What a year it has been!  I know I am not quite there, but it’s ok. I must say that the journey this year has had its highs and lows.  I didn’t finish the year off as strong as I would have liked.  Old habits die-hard and I didn’t have exercise to back me up for the last month due to a knee/hamstring injury I have been nursing.
Nutrition and exercise work hand in hand, but I really needed to put the fork down at some points!! LOL.  However, I am not  discouraged!  I have lost 53 lbs this year!  Whoohoo!  I know I can get to my goal in 2015.
Thanks to everyone who had helped support me this year.  You likes and comments really kept me going and I appreciate it so much.

PiYo To the Rescue
I started doing PiYo and though it’s different from what I’m used to, I love it and I NEED it!  I feel like I am getting strong with it.  I still get after workout pain, but it doesn’t last and I feel more loose throughout the rest of the day.  I sweat a lot doing PiYo which is an amazing.  It really is all about building strength and flexibility to help you with other workouts, running and athletics.  I see the beauty!

What I Have Learned
I have learned that I am a strong woman who can over come the obstacles before me. I have a drive and laser like focus when I’m working out that is pretty crazy!  I have truly learned to love the challenge!  It’s almost like an addiction that I’m ok with. haha I have done some things in my workouts that I have literally watched on TV and said, “Chyah, right!”  This year I was doing them.
I learned that even though I have developed some great habits, I still have a lot to overcome because old habits like to creep back up on me from time to time.  I have also learned that support and accountability is so important and though I started my journey without it, I couldn’t have gotten this far without it!
So the journey continues.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HELPING ME THROUGH THIS JOURNEY!!  My fitness journey for 2015 will continue on JN Welsh Blog mostly so I hope you guys follow me there as well.
Wishing you all the best for an awesome 2015!
