It’s been a couple of weeks now so I wanted to update you on my Heart Healthy Challenge journey. As I told you before my husband and I joined the gym and I was ready to get back in there and tackle it full force. It’s been 5 years since I was in a “real” gym but I wasn’t intimidated at all. I quickly remembered all the machines I used to use and how to use them correctly.
I was really sore the first couple days but it’s gotten better. I need to find something that helps my recovery that’s for sure. So do I think the gym is “working”? Yes. In the 3 weeks I’ve worked out I can feel myself having more energy, my body is looking better, my self-esteem is up, my face isn’t breaking out as much, and I even eat healthier because I feel better. So many positives have come out of working out.
I especially feel great that although I can’t see a difference I know I am helping my heart-making it stronger and healthier too. Beside feeling better about myself Of course I want to be healthy for my daughters. They need their Mommy and I need them.
I hope you can be inspired by my story and realize that you too can feel better about yourself even if you have never been in the gym or it has been a long time since you’ve stepped foot in one (like myself).
