So you saw, I've rebooted myself and am continuing on my health adventure. It's almost harder restarting after seeing success than starting from scratch. I decided to motivate myself this week by making some goals I could do. Work out 5x in 7 days - aw ya, I can do that!
Well Monday-Wednesday I had excuses. Thursday came along and I had a choice. Fail myself or try something crazy (for me). Normally I do yoga on Thursdays but felt like going to the gym. I put in a half hour on the treadmill and a half hour resistance training on major muscle groups. Good start! Now the crazy part - I grabbed a protein shake and a half hour rest then did my yoga class! I sweated like a pig, I was shaking for the tree pose and 2/3 of the way through wondered when we got to the part where we get to just lie on the mat. Afterwards, I glowed. In fact I'm still glowing.
Succeeding just for the sake of keeping my own word and making a change feels awesome. Don't be afraid to challenge yourself and hold yourself to it!
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
