I’d be lying if I said my journey to being healthy was easy.
But what remains is the determination. Like I’ve said before I’ve attempted to be “healthy” previously. Whether if I started a workout regimen or counted calories, I never was able to keep it up.
There was always that want of having immediate results. I’d be lying if I didn’t feel that way each time.
So this time, I take it one day at a time and continue to take it one day at a time…
It’s been a month since I’ve signed up for a gym membership and I haven’t looked back since…
I feel stronger for sure. I feel my stamina is increasing, but the workouts are definitely still challenging, but taking a toll on my knees.
Month 1 for me was more stressed on getting to the gym. To go to a class that I wanted to go to, to essentially set myself for success. Although I’m not super strict on what days I “should” go, there’s freedom to go on whatever days I may choose.
In order to move forward I must confront my current state. If I’m completely honest, with the weight gain looking at a picture of myself is hard. But I’d like to change my perspective… to put a positive spin on it. So I’d like to end on being grateful. Yes, posting this picture makes me feel vulnerable, but I’m grateful that this picture represents my progress and look forward to growing into a better version of myself as the days go on.
