I weighed myself this morning and low and behold the scale was actually nice to me. I've officialy shed 3 lbs. Yay! Being able to see the number on the scale go down is motivation in itself. I'm happy to report that my determination and motivation are slowly coming back.
A couple years ago I was really gun-ho about being healthy and was able to lose 30 lbs. Then life got in the way and the determination and motivation seemed to get lost. Since then, it has been a struggle to find even the smallest desire to exercise. I know that a lot of things have changed in my life to make it possible to focus on me and my health. The main reason is that I am done with school and actually have the time to spend exercising. This probably sounds like an excuse, and to be honest it probably was; however, I have the time now and I'm making the most of it. One of the biggest things I've learned throughout my life and hardships is that I can't change the past, I can only learn from them and make different and better decisions going forward.
I went to water aerobics last night and had a blast! I could feel the burn and was really working hard, but for some reason when it's in the water it makes it a lot more bearable. Tomorrow I'm going to Zumba with my sister-in-law and I'm excited! It kicked my trash on Monday and now that I'm feeling recovered it's going to kick it all over again. I say, "Bring It!"
