Many of you have seen that I have been working out lately. While serveral people just assume it's for wanting to look better it's more than that.
I had a very large wake up call when I went to the doctor and had a physical done. I left with a heavy heart and a stronger determination. I was fifteen pounds over the heavy weight I thought I was, and a larger waist. But that wasn't what got me. It was my blood pressure. It was extremely high to the point the doctor thought that I needed to do something. With a strong family history of diabetes and heart attacks I was falling down that path and fast. I just turned 33 and have four children. I don't want this for them too. It was time for a change.
I have taken what I eat to a whole new level. I don't pig out on sweet and have added much needed water in my diet. But since I find my mental release and distressed behind a computer while I write I am putting weight on. That too has changed. I have changed my schedual to add walking/running and classes when I can.
This has been three week so far, and while I haven't dropped the weight as quick as I would like I did notice I was happier. I expected the pain and stiffness from the excersizes, but what I didn't expect was the fact I don't yell as much, I have more energy to do things and I get more done during the day.
Yes, I still groan when I get ready to work out, but in the end I feel amazing. It is a theory like no other for me. I got excited when I did ten push ups the other day and didn't fall flat on my face. But this also has reflected in my books. I have become more productive as well.
So this is my small journey I am undertaking, and it is one I will finish!!
Thanks for listening. Love ya lots,
