As I Continue on this Journey

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

It's been a very long time since I wrote, or for that matter even tried to get active and healthy. But my love encouraged me to join the gym as he wanted to get back in shape himself, so we joined the gym about a month ago. HE has yet to go work out! But I decided that it was my time, that I was not going to pay for a gym membership and waste my money nor was I going to continue to waste my life doing nothing! So I started at the gym, went a couple days it hurt so of course I quit! But after talking to my mom, we decided that she too needed to be in the gym and so we have made a pact to go to the gym together 5 days a week. We started Sunday and though it's only been 2 days and we HURT, we are going to do water aerobics tonight so that our bodies to get relax while burning A LOT of calories.

I write all this to say, that it has to be your time, it has to be the moment in your life when you say to yourself, this is it. I can not keep living and doing the things I am doing if I want to do and be the person I dream about being. At 30 1/2 (yea I said it!) I realized that if I want to be the wife and mom I invision myself being, I have to change now, before my wedding, before my pregnancy, before my children get here. I need to be the person I want to teach my future family to be, not have to back track and break bad habits with them as well. So today I continue my journey with no "I can't do it" blockers on. I have an open heart and open mind to "I can do it, or try it, even if it's just a little bit" I know it's gonna hurt, there will be days I eat everything in site including all the bad stuff and I may not go to the gym every time I plan to go. BUT I will TRY and I believe that with time, things change and with change come success. And I will be a success!

    …and there will be days that you won't exercise but then you will recover and continue what you started. I am glad you and your mom have each other. Maybe your boyfriend will join you when he sees the changes on you emoticon

    So encouraging to hear! You're right... We need to decide that NOW is the time to make changes... Not after any holidays... Not the next Monday... Not after vacation... But NOW... I'm happy for you that you are getting those work outs in and are determined to make changes. Good for you!
