It's Official! -It's Been A While

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Today is the first day of my 'Official Transformation Journal', and I couldn't find a better title than this if I tried. Not only is it a great song by Staind it's also what started this journal in the first place. Today is a day of things I haven't done/been able to do in a while, it all started with doing strength training which is something I've been dreading because to say I put it off is a blatant lie, to put something off is to say you were going to do it and didn't. I have been keeping away from doing simply because I convinced myself that there was no need for it since I've been walking and losing weight, there was no need for change.

So today, I finally stopped deluding myself and finally admitted that my routine needed to change if I want to be healthy and to be honest truly love my body. What better way to do that than to start on the most jiggliest (it's a word, because I just made it up!) and most hated part of my body...my stomach/pooch/muffin-top what ever you call it I hate it! However, I pushed on I know I have to work the hardest to see this go away. Seven exercises down and 30 minutes later I never felt so good (minus a little headache) in a while, so feeling good I decided to do some stretches. And this is when I had my moment, the moment you truly see all the progress you've made; it was the smallest thing, that brought the greatest happiness. It wasn't the 16 pounds or the inches lost, it wasn't the fact that I could look at the scale without having to hold my stomach in, it was that I could touch my biggest toe without feeling strained and not only that I could hold it without feeling pain in my back!

That was the moment when all the dieting, sweating, walking, running, and all the support I got to keep going, it all came to this the moment everything I've done thus far has lead to something amazing.

Thank you.
