This is a hard post for me. I have been extremely lazy about working out this year. I had been swamped with work and blogging, and I was just exhausted. One of the first things to go was the gym. I just didn’t have time. Besides the fact that my body obviously did not stay in shape, I noticed a huge change in my mood. You know the whole endorphins thing (think Legally Blonde)…well it’s true.
The past few weeks I have been working with Trainer Kelli through the Level 212 Fitness App. I’m starting to see some progress already, but I think the biggest change is that my mood has improved! I feel happier and like I have more energy. I always thought I would get more tired if I worked out, which happened at first, but overall I feel much better and have much more energy during the day. I also sat down with Kelli this week and we went over how important wellness in all aspects of our lives is to our health! While I am working out with her app about 3 times a week right now, I am adding some wellness components to my training. My project for this week was to make a list every night of the things I like about myself. Surprisingly and sort of sadly, this was really hard for me. But as the week has been going on it’s getting easier. Which is also why I decided to do this post.
When I first got these photos back I did not want to post them. I am not in shape. I am soft. My arms aren’t toned and my jeans don’t fit right. I have always been small, but there is a big difference between being skinny and being in shape. I have struggle with being unhappy with how I look for a long time. I have tried extreme diets and I have gone about “getting skinny” in some unhealthy ways in the past. With Kelli’s training plan I am hoping that I can adopt some healthy ways to get in shape! I hope this will be motivating to you guys as well! So I decided to still post them because I am trying to have a healthier view of myself. I don’t need to continue to dwell on or list all of the things I dislike about my body, but I can work on improving them. This is where I am starting. This is a good motivator to get back in shape and improve myself as a whole. I think being able to feel about myself mentally is just as important as keeping my body healthy and in shape. I can’t wait for you guys to come along on my journey and see the results!
