I have been hitting the gym HARD this past three weeks. I have gone so far as to take all of the classes that typically destroy me (.... that would be SPIN class), and on occasion, and am also doubling up on a class or two (what can I say... I can't pass up Zumba. It's just too much fun).
So, with all the strain I'm putting on my quads, I'm noticing something.... MORE cellulite.
You might be thinking... "STOP what you're doing! You're supposed to be getting RID of it, NOT getting more of it!".
Nope. Not me. I'm glad to see it.
Why??? Why on earth would I think that?....
Because I know that cellulite is the result of muscle building up in my legs and the fat in my skin is being squeezed.
So, I'm going to embrace that feeling, because I did squats yesterday as part of a class and my thighs laughed at the instructor's effort to strain them.
Because my knees no longer have grinding feeling.
Because my knees no longer feel weak when I get up.
Because I'm forcing, Forcing, FORCING myself to focus on the whole body, not just how I look.
Because my scale came down two pounds.
Because I have so much energy.
Because on the days I don't work out, I am ultra hyper and need to go run around outside for a few minutes.
Because I see muscle definition coming back to various parts of my body.
All those 'becauses'...
What rewards I am reaping!
