My "Ah Hah" Moment
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
A little over a week ago, while participating in praise and worship at church, I noticed a rear view of myself on the screen. What a horrifying experience. I made an effort to rearrange my clothing in hopes that it would make a difference. The second view was just as shocking as the first. I had joined the YMCA last month, but was yet to begin working out. Just three days after my experience at church, I began working out at the Y. I have been attending regularly ever since. I know it's been only a week, but I'm finding that I actually look forward to my workouts. I'm away from my kids and work for 1-2 hours and I get to clear my head as a result. I was waking up every night. Now, I'm sleeping more soundly and I'm even in a better mood. Surprisingly, my appetite has significantly decreased. I've been told that we all have some "ah hah" moment to get us on track. For me, it has taken over a year of half-stepping to actually become diligent enough to put forth more effort.
