Can you see the hole by the toes where there is just mesh and no layer underneath? These suckers were sad.
So, I announced this goal to one of the trainers at my gym. I promised myself that I wouldn't buy new sneakers until the scale said the magic number.
And then I hit a plateau.
For the next 8 weeks, I laced up those worn out old sneakers at least 3 times a week. I walked into the gym every Thursday and Kris, the trainer, looked at my feet and I'd tell her "I lost 2 tenths" or "I gained a pound". But I was still wearing the same darn sneakers.
This plateau wasn't that frustrating, because I knew what was causing it. ME! I was still working out consistently, but I wasn't working out as hard. I was still making smarter food choices, but I wasn't doing it all the time.
Finally, last week I hit the big 4-0. Once school ended, my mindset got right back into "kick some @$$" mode. And yesterday, I bought my new shoes.
What's my next goal? 50. And the reward? It's not nearly as fun as new shoes, but I am in serious need of some new sports bras. Exciting, huh?
