Non Scale Victories ; They Do Exist!!!!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

On my way to the gym today I decided I was going to tell the trainer I wanted to quit working with him mostly because I just felt like quitting altogether and I really didn't feel like working out today and I knew if I stop working with him I knew I could ease my way out of going to the gym period.

Now you ask why? I am doing well, lost 8lbs, eating healthier and feeling better!

I don't really know I just felt this morning it wasn't enough

So I was thinking of at best how to at least get out of todays training

But to no avail, the head trainer sat next to me and asked what was wrong and I lied saying oh nothing so she started talking about my nutrition and I guess she could tell I wasn't really into it so she said lets pull out your folder(weight/measurement )....again not real excited.

She takes my measurement again which wasn't supposed to be done until next Tuesday (my trainer is new so hes watching us)

And what you know there are inches lost all over! Of course I get a little excited and start thinking working out isn't so bad. Keep in mind I never get around to telling them I want to quit nor that I really don't feel like working out today

As we go through our training routine I start to feel better its almost over then he points at the stairs......well the first week(jan 2) I could only do 1 flight of stairs with much difficulty and since that time he would add a flight per week.....This week I did 5 yes say it with me 5 FLIGHTS of stairs........OMG!!!! I couldn't believe it, I just did them with some effort but I did them.....knees still hurt but I did them without holding on to banister, I did it. Today was a good workout after all. I really wasn't going to quit just didn't want to workout but that's when I know I have to keep going that those days are the turning points that make the difference.

As I always say.....if you keep doing what you've always done you will keep getting what you always got!!! Not anymore.... I want something new...a better me

Lesson learned..... NEVER GIVE UP
