Weigh-In Wednesday #40 – 145.2

FUN STATS:  This is my 294th blog post, on my 280th day since starting The Jen West Quest!  How’s that for some numbers?  While looking through my stats this morning, I also discovered that I had a total of 76,217 blog views in 2010.  My busiest day so far was December 1st with 3,102 views.  Thank you so much for being interested in my life!!


One race at a time.  One month at a time.  One week at a time.  One day at a time.  One workout out at a time.  As I was trying to motivate myself through my bike workout last night, it occurred to me that all I have is this moment.  This one chance to get closer to my goals.  It’s just a small step among many that leads to something much bigger than myself.  There is no time to put anything off, all we have right now.

I had a huge non-scale victory last night – I did 30 strong push-ups!  Back when I started this blog I couldn’t do 2.  My upper body is finally responding to the strength sessions that I’ve been doing for the past few months.  I can’t wait to have strong & defined shoulders just like a real swimmer!  🙂  I’m becoming an athlete right before my very eyes.  When I reach my new goal weight of 140, I am going to post an updated bikini photo so you can see the difference.

As promised, below is my 2011 timeline chart.  I will edit & add to it as the year progresses.  It’s just nice to have a solid starting point!
