This week I started working out again for the trillionth time. I have to admit I’m kind of tired of writing this phrase. I have done it like a hundred times since I started my blog. It’s seriously getting tiring for me. But at the same time I know I have to embrace when I’m actually taking care of myself. Besides this time I kind of have an excuse for being off . But I’m not going to let the excuse be my reason for forever. It’s time to get up and get moving again.
I started working out again this past Saturday to the encouragement of my husband. I had been talking about how I hated the fact that I gained the weight back from when I lost cause of the diet I was on because of my medical issues. I had been complaining about it for weeks. Last Saturday I was on Groupon considering doing a twerking class. The class was $15 and I was actually going to pay for the class and go. Then I looked up the address and realized it was an apartment complex. So then I went back and looked at the Groupon. That’s when I realized the class was virtual. So I almost paid money for a class I could basically find for free on YouTube. So instead of paying for the class I went to find something similar on YouTube. So when I found something I was interested in The Husband asked me if I was going to do it. I decided to go ahead and work out. Once o finished I realized how good I felt and it went from there. Until that I moment I actually forgot how much I enjoyed a good workout.
Another thing I realized was for me working out and eating the way I should go hand in hand. If I’m not working out I get lazy on my eating. I have not been making the best decisions when it comes to food. I still eat healthy at home but I was struggling at work. I was eating my food and whatever they brought the kids for lunch. Before I started exercising I had actually set a reminder in my phone that reminded me to just eat my own food. I have to admit that I was a bit embarrassed that I had to do it but at the same time I have to do what I have to do to get healthy. No one really knows I have it set on my phone except for my husband. But it was still hard for me to accept that I need to do this to eat right. It took me about a week but now I’m used to. The reminder helps me to stay on track.
Right now I’m feeling really good that I have started again. This probably won’t be my last restart but I’m going to take it for what it is right now. I enjoy my fitness journeys when I’m on them. I love seeing my body change for the better. So I can’t wait to see how everything turns out this time. I think it will stick longer this time.
