This post is a little different on what I would normally write on here. This is a journal entry style, which I will be doing from time to time – whenever I feel like it.
I have to be honest. I have not gone to the gym ever since spring and it shows. Today, I finally decided to go, with just a little bit of encouragement from my sister. I take that back, I mean A LOT! I have been putting working out in the back burner because…well…there is really no excuse other than my laziness. I have been slacking off in this department of my life and it is time that I pick up the slack.
I noticed that I felt sluggish most of the time ever since I stopped working out. But today was different. After my work out, I felt invincible! Almost as if I can do anything – even rule the world! I also had a lot more energy throughout the day. I did some laundry, vacuumed and even put out the Christmas decorations through out the house with a lot more energy to spare than I would normally have.
I am really looking forward to working out because I want to feel like this each and everyday. Not just for myself but also for baby M. I want to make sure that I set a good example for her. Since I have gained a lot of weight over the course of 6 months I think this will also be a great opportunity to shed some of those pounds. If I am brave enough, I might even post some before and after pictures.
Well it is getting late and I better hit the hay.
