Between half an hour at the driving range and 90 minutes at the gym, I think I may have died today.
I’ve been finding it pretty difficult lately to find motivation to eat right and exercise lately. Today, something finally clicked and I am feeling much better. Hopefully my new motivation sticks around for a while.
I have gone to the driving range a few times since I have been back in Massachusetts (golfing is one of my very favorite things to do). Now that I have lost a bunch of weight, my golf swing is drastically improving. I can’t wait to actually hit a round rather than sticking to the range.
I went and hit a bucket of balls this afternoon on the way to work out (the range is conveniently located less than a mile from the gym). Well, it was 95 degrees outside and by the time I was done with the bucket, I was a hot mess. I don’t think I have ever been that hot and sweaty walking IN the gym doors.
After having a miserable cold and not being able to do much cardio all week, I was feeling better today so I hit the dreaded treadmill. I managed to run 5 minutes straight two different times (with 5 minutes of walking in between.) Then I did 15 minutes of walking uphill at max incline. What felt like a million squats, a good core workout, and the 30 day ab challenge later, I’m already sore — but a good sore.
It will be a miracle if I can walk tomorrow.

I am So proud of you Lynn! Continue to take it one day at a time. I feel like I keep starting over every few days myself – Ice cream is my downfall! and Dad keeps buying me sweets. 😦 It is all good! Each day is a new day and as long as you can keep refocusing on what is important you will reach your goal! Can’t wait to hear that you’ve played 9 holes of golf!
