I can’t believe how fast the weeks are flying by! I notice every day in the gym I am feeling a little bit stronger. I am learning so many ways to exercise that I never knew about and the smallest movements can really work out your whole body. I really enjoy that every day we mix it up and do different things. We do a little of everything such as aerobics, cardio and strength training. My favorite is cardio even though it is the one that kicks my butt the most! I enjoy working out in the mornings most because it makes me really want to watch what I eat the rest of the day. I get so sweaty and out of breath but after I leave the gym, I feel so proud of myself for not giving up. This experience has definitely opened my eyes to how out of shape I am. I guess I was kind of in denial before, but now is the chance for everything to change! Being a 22-year-old girl, I shouldn’t have so many aches and pains at my age. Also, I am on high blood pressure medication and that is another thing I want to get off of. I have so many reasons as motivation to finally get this weight off of me.
On Tuesday night, I had a set back and tripped down my basement steps. I could hardly put any pressure on my left foot so I had my doctor take an xray. I am happy to say that there is nothing broken or fractured and that it is just sprained. My doctor cleared me to work out but to just take it easy for the next couple days. I am so thankful that it was just a false alarm. I am not going to let this get in my way of my goals. I know after a couple days my foot will be feeling as good as new. I am so glad I have such a great support system at home with my fiance Mike and in the gym with Lisa and all the girls. I am eager to start seeing big changes and start my new life.
