I use to hate working out. Now, working out is a part of my life – it makes me happy!
They say it takes thirty days to form a habit. I suppose that is true. All I know for a fact is that it has been four months since I made the decision to change my lifestyle and now I don’t know how I ever lived differently. I remember when I would fear the treadmill. Can you believe that I actually was afraid to get on a machine. I always felt like I would fall off of it and skid my face up and knock out a tooth or two. Although that can happen that is not something that should have been on my mind. Today I look forward to my time on the treadmill. I give myself challenges and sometimes I don’t feel like my workout is complete until I tackle it. It is so funny how your life can change when you make a conscious decision to change it.
My new thing is working on my upper body. My first goal was to just get in the gym three times a week minimum and commit to doing cardio. I’ve expanded my knowledge of different machines and am no longer confined to the elliptical now I am obsessed with toning. The first thing that has to go is my tummy and my arms. My upper body is absolutely my problem area and I know that has a lot to do with changes in my diet but it also has to do with challenging myself to hitting the weight machines. I want my stomach and arms to be sculpted like a greek goddess LOL. I need that in my life. Once I get that I am treating myself to a shopping spree. New body, new clothes. YESSSS! I can’t wait.
My goals are in the making not in my dreams. I will keep working and then one day it will just be. I’m so excited and I should be. Taking control of my life has changed me for the better. Thank God!
