Time flies even faster when you’re following a fitness program.
At the end of this week, it’ll have been 2 weeks since the start of BBG. And I have to say, the past 2 weeks really haven’t been all that bad…
I say that now, but I’ll probably regret saying it next week. I feel so much better and have been sleeping so much better since working out on a daily basis, it’s crazy. It’s a life change that I am welcoming with open arms and I’m very proud of myself for finally having the right mindset to stick with it. I’m taking it little by little, and eventually I know I’ll reap the benefits.
To me, following this program isn’t about losing weight. I want toned muscle and strength, and the ability to walk up my stairs without having to stop and catch my breath. I want to feel good from the inside out and radiate that empowerment out to all my peers. I want to inspire other people to not lose weight, but to focus on eating healthy and getting your 10,000 steps in each day. I want to have a healthy body to be able to create children and be able to nurture them with a fit and healthy body throughout a pregnancy, as that’s been Luke and my goal since Autumn. I want to prepare myself to have good stamina and a strong core that I can maintain throughout my lifetime, since it’ll be easier to gain now than later in my life. There are a million reasons that I want to do this program that don’t involve losing weight, and my main goal is to greet every day with a smile with how far I’ve come and what I’ve accomplished, and be able to look back and see that I actually tried. It makes me thrilled when Luke comes home from work and congratulates me on working out, and that he encourages me to be my best self. I love in the middle of my workout when my legs are shaking and I have a pit in my stomach and everything is telling me to stop, and I tell myself to keep going.
I am so looking forward to the coming weeks and the level I can achieve with my goals!
