I made it through my first week..... Was it challenging? YES!!!! It pretty much kicked my A** ! Nonetheless, I logged four workouts this week and GOING STRONG! Of course, I had some incentives..... Well, my gym offers a Hydro Massage Bed and Massage Chairs with your membership. With Hydro Massage Bed access I convinced myself that this "magical massage" would make everything better! This week was NOT without the typical aches and pains of a first week workout. I just kept reminding myself how it's all worth it in the end! I gave myself a break and took days in between workouts to recoup in order to keep myself motivated. I admit that I daydreamed of coconut ice cream and snickers many evenings after dinner... but managed to opt-out. EXCEPT for the danish and donuts that made it into my kitchen this week by my better half. Only a few minor setbacks this week ~ Overall I felt great! THE STRUGGLE IS REAL! I just kept telling myself... BREATHE (your post massage will be worth it!) lol

My cup was runing over with excitment today! I finally followed through and began the journey..... the road back home to taking care of me again. My body being restored, my mind being renewed and my spirit being refreshed. I was reminded again and again today that I am worth fighting for. My gym provided a perfect atmosphere to thrive... Judgement Free Zone ! No Critics! That truly is the theme of the gym. No jokes. It seems to serve us well. I can't believe I'm doing this but..... I've posted an actual before pic.... Yikes!
So with some serious "Muffin Tops" exposed I humbly share this journey with you. If only to inspire one person to take the next step and take care of themselves. It is truly more than a physical journey. It takes mental endurance and willingness to commit. It takes pushing through the physical and mental challenges that I may face in the upcoming months. Committing to allowing myself to heal Body, Soul, Spirit!
Body: My physical self
Soul & Spirit:
|Tipping over the cup of JOY!|
I am beyond grateful to be given the opportunity to renew
what had been lost for sometime.
