I felt an overwhelming sense of positivity this afternoon. I'm not sure when it hit me, exactly but I do know it was after I got home from work.
Today I did it. I made THE big phone call that I've been thinking and talking about making for a while. I scheduled a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. I am both nervous and excited.
My consult isn't until April 6th which I think is a good thing. The woman I spoke to in the phone said that they've had a lot of phone calls lately and that the office has been really busy. I like this. It makes me feel a sense of comfort knowing that he is so in-demand. I've viewed pictures of his work and visited his website and have been impressed.
I think that scheduling this consult is part of what made me feel so positive. I don't know what he will tell me but I'm excited to go. I'm hoping to hear that I'm a good candidate for surgery, and soon! It will be good to get some professional input regarding my progress even if he doesn't think I'm ready... Which I obviously hope isn't the case!
I think that just making this call made me feel good. It reminded me of how hard I've worked and how far I've come. It also makes me want to be the absolute best I can be when I go to the consultation. I'm going to work hard to make sure that my eating is healthy and that my workouts are good. Muscle takes time to build but I know that if I keep working hard, especially by doing my BR workouts, that I will have some nice muscle tone by then. I think that this consult is a good motivator for me.
Then when I was running I felt even better. I didn't have a hard time with the workout. It actually took a while to get my heart rate up to 85% of my max. My legs didn't hurt. I had no problem catching my breath. Most of the time felt normal.... Not hard but not too easy either. It just felt good. I felt like a runner today. I haven't felt that in a while. Especially not last week when I was so tired and had headaches often. It was so much nicer today. It's actually kind of hard to put how it felt into words, which isn't something that I generally struggle with. It really was an indescribable feeling.
I'm not sure where it came from but I like it. I still feel good. I think the new calorie plan has helped too. I just feel... Awesome.
