Be Mindful and Do Not Let Progress Go Unnoticed
So I am not making great headway scale number wise, but the reality is, I am killing this journey otherwise. I am able to run faster and longer each week, I am not even kinda struggling to button my pants or to latch my belt now, and I am getting a better grip each day on my eating. But I almost didn't recognize a small but nice sign of progress that showed up today. I was running my 1.5 miles that I managed to get in despite not being completely well from a respiratory infection. When I slowed down and moved to an uphill walk, I noticed something after about 10 minutes. Obviously when I run, my arms are up. Walking, I just let them swing by my side naturally, except for on a treadmill at my gym. I start off trying but then I have to do the power walking stance because my arms are forced out too far by my side boobs and hits the hand rail on the side of the treadmill. Well today, I noticed I was not holding my arms in the power walking position because they were not hitting the rail!! side boob is starting to shrink!!! yaaaaay!!! Glad I was able to catch that and not let it slip by!
