It has been a alright week so far. I missed my monday workout because I was dealing with some things and didn’t feel like working out. It is hard to be motivated when your heart is troubled. It is nobody’s fault but my own. It is alright to miss a workout once in a while as long as it doesn’t become normal to miss. I will say I am really worried about the summer, because my girls will be up later and there always seems like something is going on. And my time is going to be pushed to the limits. I need to make sure that at the least I workout 3 days, but my goal will remain 5 days.
Tuesday I wanted to make up for missing my abs workout but I ran out of time. I was still able to do 26 mins on the elliptical and get a good leg workout. I will try to get abs in later this week.
Blog wise – I posted my first contribution from another person. My cousin Tia wrote the post yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed it. Please take time and visit her blog. I really excited to have it on my blog. She gave some great advice. I also have been in contact with others who are willing to contribute and look forward to their advice and journeys. Again if I have not contacted you and you have something you would like to contribute – that is great. Write down and e-mail it to me. If you need it – let me know. If you are another blogger and want to do what tia and I did – you can email me your journey/post and I will add a link back to you and vice versa. Even though it is my blog, I want it to be our blog, our story and our journeys. I think it will be awesome to have hundreds of stories and advice from a collection of individuals.
While I was on Facebook this morning, I came across this post. It came originally from http://flintland.blogspot.com/2012/05/hey-fat-girl.html. So be sure to check it out there. As someone who has just recently begun his own journey, this was a true encouragement. As many of you grapple with beginning your own journey, let this be an encouragement to you. To those who have been on their journey for a while, let this be a remembrance of where you came from and where you are now, or at the least be conscious of where someone else might be.
Hey, out of shape girl
You have already begun your transformation. You no longer accept this physical state of numbness and passivity. You have taken a difficult decision, but one that holds so much promise. Every hard breath you take is actually a tad easier than the one before, and every step is ever so slightly lighter. Each push forward leaves the former person you were in your wake, creating room for an improved version, one that is stronger, healthier and forward-looking, one who knows that anything is possible.
