This Girl Is On Fire!!!!

Girl on fire!

Last night I went to Zumba! It was hard and tiring and painful and amazing! I will be going back next week. I have never sweated so much in my life!
I am feeling really proud of myself because there were a few obstacles that tried to keep me from going. The first of which is that I was tired and sore from my workout on the previous day. The more pressing one was that I had absolutely no gas in my car. I was very tempted to just skip it but instead I changed into my work clothes, scrounged up $5 in change from around the house and barely made it to the gas station down the street to put gas in the car.
I was/am a woman determined to not only be super fine for my wedding and honeymoon, but also to live a better life for the rest of my life. The best part is that Tomi, my honey, is coming on the journey with me.
I am definitely falling in love with my new, healthy life.

I Walked A Mile…Literally

I walked A mile the other day at the gym. This may not seem like a big deal to most but for me, its monumental.
I set out to do 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill at least 3x a week. I have been sticking to that and always end up being just under a mile. Well, I decided to ignore the time and make it to a whole mile. My legs felt like limp noodles and I wasn’t sure I would make it to the car afterward but I made it and it felt AMAZING!
It is hard getting back to an active lifestyle after leading a very sedentary life for so long. Finding the motivation to get to the gym is really hard some days but I am sticking with it. I am determined to make positive changes in my life. I no longer want to be held back by the physical and mental limitations I have allowed because of my size and weight.

Working through the hard days makes the reward so much sweeter.
