The Weight Loss Journey cont….

Here I am almost 3 months in! I can’t believe it, No Really, I seriously can’t believe it.

Six days a week at 5am I leave my house and check in at Orange Theory. For those Non- morning people YES 5 am!

hear monitorI truly believe that it’s key for you to find the work out that resonates with you. I tried several gyms and attended the classes…. Boring….. Is what has come up for me!
I have no clue how to work out. No clue about weights. Cardio..etc. I finally found and fell in love with this workout. It’s a small class, one hour, and personal attention from a professional trainer. So many people would tell me that once I found a gym I loved I would be hooked and they were right. Not only is the workout amazing, you actually wear a heart monitor that tracks your heart beat therefore, you are able to calculate how many calories you burned during the workout and up to 36 hrs after. Yes trackable results and data!

I’ve lost 10lbs, but my body has drastically changed. Not to mention my mind. The way I think about myself. My self esteem has increased. I have fallen in love with myself and am so proud that I finally stopped being so lazy and full of excuses of why I couldn’t work out and get fit. This is my life. My body. You only get one. It’s my obligation to take care of it. I don’t want to be tired, stressed, anxious and exhausted all the time and be a good wife and mother. My family deserved better. I deserved to be happy. Please understand that this weight loss journey is not about being a size zero. That is not the goal. The goal is to be more mindful of my body and health. I’ve noticed such a huge difference in my sleep and choices for food that I feed my body. I barely drink alcohol anymore. I am starting to realize how many poor choices I was making, that in the future may have caused health issues.

Another impact is my intimate life with my husband. I can see how proud he is of me. He is constantly telling me that he loves me and is so impressed with this journey I am on. I believe that I have some what of a responsibility to stay sexy and provocative for my husband. I try my best to be his girlfriend, what I mean is, back when we were dating I made sure I looked good. Dressed up. Kept myself in shape. That’s the girl he fell in love with and married.
inner mind
Please take the time to love yourself. You are important to so many people. There are people that count on you. Being a mom is such a blessing but for some reason we tend to put ourselves last. That is not ok. I personally think that taking the time to go the gym is my time. My alone time. The time I use to focus on myself. Maybe the gym is not something you want to do…thats fine. However, please go do something for yourself. I can’t stress enough how important that is. I used to feel that from the time I woke up until the minute I went to sleep, my life was about serving everyone else. Ofcourse I was exhausted. #DUH! lol

I can’t express how happy and proud I am of this journey I am on. I would love nothing more than to hear from you and together we can be on this journey together. I really enjoy getting feedback from my blogs and it opens the lines of communication so that as moms we can have each others back.

I hope I have touched your mommy soul and inspired you to give yourself a break. Cheers to you!
