I think I’ve finally found my motivation to get healthy. It starts tomorrow because I think I should be allowed to indulge in the potluck at work today.
I feel amazing. I, for the first time in literally YEARS, have finished a workout video. I’m showered and refreshed now sipping on some ice cold water. I’ve been telling myself for years and trying to coax myself into a regime more recently than ever before and I finally did it. I need to keep on this because I do feel good after the workout. I did it to the best of my current ability and I know that I will improve if I stick with it and switch it out every so often. If I can continue to push myself in doing this, I will be posting the blog portion to http://www.myfitnesspal.com rather than to this blog but for now it’ll be on here. According to MFP, I’m still under my calories today with the exercise configured in which is good. However, what I have eaten hasn’t been healthy in the least. For now, I need to focus on one aspect at a time. At the end of the video Billy Blanks says some motivational words to the viewers about perseverance and willpower. He notes that you CAN do it if you choose to. No one else can do it for you. I was so overwhelmed that I did start crying because even though it was a 45 minute video and I didn’t do everything exactly the way they did, I still felt good about myself. I know that I have an enormous journey ahead of me but I pray to the Heavens that I don’t give up because I don’t see immediate results.
