Mornings

I’m so sleepy this morning. You always hear if you eat right and exercise, you will have an abundance of energy. I’m still waiting for that energy to kick in. I did somehow managed to get my mile walk this morning.

My workouts are important to me. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to do them, but I always feel better when I complete them. I do take a rest day or two when my body needs it.

My workout goals today:

Morning: 1-mile walk

Afternoon: 

12- minutes Stair Climber

11-Arc Trainer

1- mile treadmill

Transformation

 

I wish I would have done a before and  after photo. This is the best I could come up with. The photo on the left was taken in December 2016, and the right was May 2017. This is a 50lb difference. I can’t help but stare in amazement. I still can’t believe this is me.

I have to cut this short. I’m heading to the gym.

My Journey

I heard somewhere that if you do something for 21 days, it will become a habit.

January 7, 2017- Day one at the gym I weighed in at 263 pounds.   I got on the treadmill for 30 minutes at a speed of 2.5-2.8. I was out of breath and trying to make it through the workout.  I went every day. Before I knew it, I had made it to the 21 days.

During this time, I joined weight watchers and changed the way I ate. By my first month anniversary, I had lost 15 pounds! Fast forward four months, I continue to workout and eat healthier. I now average 3.7 on the treadmill. I’m conquering the Stair Master and the Arc Trainer and I am now weighing in at 212! Oh, did I mention that my daughter joined me? She has lost 41 pounds and works out regularly and eats a healthy diet.

I love my new life. I amazed every time I beat my last record or lift at a higher weight. I learn something new about myself everyday.  The decision to commit to 21 days was the best decision I ever made.
