Run Baby Run

Friday, April 04, 2014

Today was awesome for me. I got to the gym in very high spirit. I ran 1 mile in less 13 min, that is 1 min less than the last 1 mile run I did (kudos to my trainer at the gym, he was so encouraging and to motivate me, he started running with me). I feel so proud of myself right now and I know it can only be better.

Did resistance training and a few weights. It was a terrific day for me.

To make my day, the trainer told me there are many of his clients that are always encouraged and motivated by my body, fitness and zeal. Since I don't relate so well at the gym (I keep minding my business) I seem not to give so much chance for comments but today I felt so proud hearing that from my trainer.

Can we call that Non-Scale Victory? Yay!

Yoga is getting to me on a daily basis now. I am a Christian, so meditating while in my poses feel so good and relaxing. For example, I recite "The Lord's Prayer" whenever I am on a Mountain Pose, I hope I am not breaking the rules that way, lol.

What new thing have you been doing and enjoying sparkies?

    I'm glad you are doing so well, Temitope! Your trainer sounds great.
I too started to do yoga a few months ago and now I enjoy it very much. It fills my day with energy and calmness.
