Sore But Happy

Thursday, September 20, 2012

I had my first hour-long personal training session yesterday. I hurt in places I didn't know I had. But I feel the muscle tightness so I know that I actually have some muscles underneath all this fat. This is a good feeling. Little by little I'm making progress and I can't help but feel happy and excited.

I'm still stuck in a craptastic situation, but October is quickly approaching and I will definitely be able to secure a place by the first of the month because I should have all the funds I need. I'm kicking in some extra hours as much as I can and I'm blessed to have a super supportive Church family that has provided me with the encouragement to keep my head up and make things happen.

I have a totally new outlook on this time in my life because it has helped me to grow spiritually and as a person. I have new appreciation for all of my blessings and more inner peace regardless of my circumstances. This peace and positive reinforcement is worth the pain that I had to go through to achieve it.

It's hard to put my feelings into words, but this experience has made me a stronger and more positive woman, and both my daughter and I learned that we have more strength and determination than before.

Positive thinking and chipping away at your goals is a powerful process. Be proud of yourself for every step in your journey, whether it is forward or backward. If you choose to make your body a priority for the rest of your life, you will see results. emoticon
