I made a huge discovery today-my mentality is changing and I never even noticed! I've been learning how to jog for the last few months and my hip began hurting. At my best, I was jogging 30 min and I was doing some sort of jogging 4 times a week. Then the hip began bothering me, so I scaled back until now, I'm jogging once a week for about 15 min. My hip still hurts!
So here is the change:
This morning I asked my honey to put pressure on my sore hip (hoping that after tihe initial pain, some relief would come after). I literally began shaking from the pain. So my honey said I need to stop jogging and walking and using the elliptical until my hip is better. I said, get this-"but if I can't exercise, I can't get healthier." NOTICE I said "healthier" not "lose weight"!~!!!!!
Somewhere along this journey, I stopped focusing on pounds pounds pounds, and have made the life change into wanting to be a healthier me! I am so proud and amazed at the different person I am becoming! I"m no longer thinking about "bad" or "good foods. I'm learning about moderation and incorporating fresh foods and cooking at home and exercising and....I have learned sosososososo much. And I'm still learning. And what an awesome journey this is.
