Nearing the end of my first month, I re-read the relevant chapters in “The 4-Hour Body” [Amazon | iTunes aff. links].

It helped me remember how I got to this point. A little shot of inspiration helps now and then.

A refresher on the finer points of each workout routine, on how numbers point you in the right direction (even if half of them aren’t perfectly accurate), on the people who’ve already worked toward their big goals using small, manageable steps.

I hadn’t read the info in about a month, save for a few glances at the exercise steps. Amazing what you forget in the interim.

Over lunch, I mentioned to Ginny my concern about my growing gut. She pointed out that some of that growth was muscle, which made me feel better. Her insight was helpful as always.

She is fascinated by this project, I guess because it’s about trying to become more than I am. I do need to ask her the specific reason.

I invited Ginny to come with me to Monday’s BodPod session, since she missed the first one. She will get a kick out of the whole futuristic space capsule journey, I’m sure.

The moral support, whether words on a page or from a friend, reminds me of how far I’ve come.
