I’m Getting Smaller but Feeling Bigger!

Posted: April 4, 2011 in 2011 - Jan1 thru Mar 31

So, how does this happen?

Well, beginning January 1, 2011 I took on a new Ninety-One Days Challenge. My goal was to make the necessary changes to get me feeling better about my life and overall well-being. I basically had three goals: Get in shape (inner body toning), lose 10 pounds (outer body toning) and lastly, get my mind back in shape.

I joined a gym and worked out about three times per week for the first half of the program, then graduated up to five or six times per week. I met with a pharmacist once per week to weigh in, have BP checked and discuss the weeks progress, etc.

Everything went very well. I lost nearly 15 pounds over all, BP dropped 30 points (within 3 weeks of beginning the program), and I have a new outlook on life. There may be other factors contributing to my optimistic outlook, but I do credit much of it to my commitment of these programs. With a little help form my friends and a whole lot of self control, ninety-one days is enough time to reach any goal. See my overall results below and make your commitment today!
