Magnificent Monday

What a terrific day I had so far. I woke up early and went to Bali Hai, one of Las Vegas’s premier golf courses located just south of Mandalay Bay on the famous Las Vegas Boulevard. I went in to meet a friend who took the role as the new caddy master. When I arrived at 8 am my friend had already sold out of caddies and asked me if I would go out. I jumped on the opportunity and I was paired with a nice man from Nebraska. We had a lot to talk about and I helped him guide in some tremendous putts throughout his round, so I felt like I had done my job (granted this was my first time caddying for money). After our round I decided to drive over to Las Vegas Golf Club and play 18 myself. I ended up shooting 76 with 1 quadruple bogie (I know, horrible), 4 birdies, 4 bogies, and nine pars.

I felt like I was on a good roll, so I wanted to let out some stored energy at the gym. I’m also on my 3rd day of a 10 day Advocare cleanse so I can feel my body start to lean out. I couldn’t wait to get on the scale to check my progress. I got on and before my eyes I was 205.5 lbs. I haven’t been 205 for 7 years so this was a special moment in my journey to lose weight and feel great. I can’t tell you how proud of myself that I am and I just want to share my happiness with all of you out there that know you can be proud of yourself too. Sometimes life throws many challenges at us and it’s difficult to focus on the important things in life like our health, fitness, and physique, but when you decide to do it, it is so worth it! Honestly I could be broke and starving, but as long as I can look in the mirror and know that I’ve earned the body in front of me there really is no comparison of that feeling. The confidence spills over into all the other aspects of our lives and good things start happening.
