Embrace The Change!

Hey SoulShiners! Okay, I'm going to begin by not saying anything about the weather in the Northeast, although I would like to. Sooooo last week, I filled you in on my exact exercise and nutrition goals for myself and I'm happy to report that I succeeded on all fronts! Yay! Let me tell you that writing it down and letting all of you know, held me accountable - especially yesterday morning strapping on my sneakers and heading out for my 8 in the drizzle and wind. I did it though...nothing lasts forever definitely ran through my mind more than once....just like the snow. :)

We're a team, remember that. You can count on each other for accountability, help, motivation, and encouragement. We're all in it together! :)

One more thing. While spending the week only eating good, clean, and nutritious food, I've realized that those days when I only had to think about losing 5 pounds and then losing them in a minute, are now over. I really have to work at it these days! Bodies change, metabolism changes over time, and hormones fluctuate. So, when I opened my computer this afternoon and happened upon this article, I immediately read it hoping to find some information that will help me sort out my new understanding of this bod of mine. It's a great read!
