What One Workout Can Do
Wednesday, January 03, 2018
I’m currently on day six of the 100 Day Challenge and while yes that’s six days of exercise, it hasn’t all been beautiful, healthy salads and intense cardio workouts. I partied a little hard on New Years and my tummy partied a little harder with the help of some stuffed crust pizza. But man, do I feel different! I’m so much happier, have so much more energy, and that girl in the mirror looks more like a new friend than the same old me! I honestly feel like I look so different, but I know in reality I don’t actually look very different yet... but TO ME instead of seeing someone who’s lazy and uncaring of herself and who should be ashamed of the food she ingests, I see someone who is crushing the healthy eating and workout game. Even on the days when I just did yoga rather than a high calorie burner or a lifting session I just felt... so good! I am more accepting of what my body looks like because I know I’m taking care of it now and even if my weight doesn’t change at all at least I’m giving my body what it needs to thrive. Plus, I didn’t want to work out at all today; I barely slept last night, was exhausted all day, put in my day crunching numbers at work, drove home, ate dinner... I was tired, I was done, I was so over it. But I got on that elliptical even when my fiancé tempted me with a trip to Target. After six days of this challenge all I know is I may only be a pound or two lighter, but my confidence is soaring and I’d look like a whole different person if you put my in a bikini now versus then!
