Awake and Alive
Saturday, June 22, 2013
Never can I remember feeling so great! Feels like my insides are doing a happy dance. Yup, I still have some knee soreness from my prior sprain, but I feel like I am bouncing out of my skin.
Why am I so energized and bubbly? I think the reason is twofold. The more immediate reason is I just came from the gym where I had a HARD session with a trainer. For more experienced, toned and fit folks, this might have been a walk in the park. However, I am not those folks. I am significantly overweight, and until today have barely been moving it feels like.
I have been tweaking what I eat and I think stepping away from large quantities of fat and sugar have helped, but this is something even greater. I feel like yessssss! The trainer asked me while I was smiling afterwards. I was smiling because I did it.
I have been looking high and low for a trainer and today I found one. I jumped in whole hog. I took on 2 hours a week for a year. I am committed and this is going to help me significantly.
I feel clearheaded and happy. Yay. I do have it in me after all. I forgot for a little while how magnificent I can be and how much I have to offer the world. I stopped "living" and I was just in survival mode and sometimes, barely even that. I am proud of myself for getting back in the groove. WOO HOO!
