As some of you who have been with me for a while know, this has been a rough year. I have focused on the health of my husband and taken the stress of the day out in chocolate. Peanut butter chocolate no bakes to be exact. They just made me feel better and if one was good two would be better and then four started working too!! Needless to say I have put on the weight. I weigh more than I have ever weighed in. my. life!!! And that includes the time when I was pregnant with twins and delivered 6 lbs. 14 oz. EACH twins. Hello.
So today my honey and I started working out. I haven't worked out in a decade. This post may be for the one who is in the same position I am in. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it. I thought my heart wouldn't let me. I didn't think my lungs would be able to handle it. I thought my muscles couldn't go that far. But they did. They all did. The first five minutes on the bicycle were probably the worst. My leg muscle did burn and I felt like I had a hitch in my
git-a-long, but I just stopped and stretched it out and started back again. I ended up riding the bicycle for 10 minutes and walked on the treadmill for thirty.
And you know what? It felt good. I got past, way past, the burn. I felt for the first time in a long time the euphoria of exercising.
I'm tired of not being able to go in my closet and pull out what I want to wear that day and be able to wear it. It's time for me to just look cute. I want my body back and I'm gonna get it.
So today is the first day of the rest of my life.
Stay tuned for further updates in my midlife battle of the bulge.
And thank you for being here.
