Staying On Track: 2 Months Now

I can’t say it has been a solid two months of getting in shape but I am however being consistent.  I am finally noticing a change in my fleshy anatomy body and my poundage weight is down by 12 numbers on the scale.  And regardless if I have a few days of “unhealthy” eating it stays steadily at that weight.  My next goal will be another 10 pounds and to have it regulated at that weight as well.  I do this so that the chances of gaining the weight back are less likely to sneak up on me.

I will be the first to admit that I loathe going to the gym.  Especially if it’s at 4:30 in the morning.  My body just does not know how to operate in that kind of manner anytime before noon.  I will take a 5 hour energy, get to the gym at 4:45, and when I get  back home sometimes go right back to sleep.  No joke.  Other days I am up, showered, and waiting for the kids to wake up.  Thankfully those early morning gym times aren’t everyday.

A couple days ago my workout partner and I attempted a new torture device exercise machineUnknown

It’s working great don’t you agree?  Oh whoops that’s not me.  Anyway that’s what the machine kind of looks like and let me tell you every muscle from my neck to my ass hurts.  I was a walking conglomeration of Salonpas last night even after a hot epsom salt bath and a gallon jug bottle of wine.  And today isn’t any different only I no longer smell like medicinal mint and I am out of wine…again.

Getting On Track Again

Getting On Track Again.

It’s been one month that I have been on the healthy track again.  And I feel fantastic!  Not much has changed with my body yet but my mind and attitude have changed drastically.  It really is true that exercise and eating right ((we won’t talk about the several pieces of pizza I had the last few days)) truly is the key to feeling better.

Lastnight I took a walk around the neighborhood…something I had done at the beginning of the “getting on track” process and I could do it with much more ease.  I had more energy even though it was 5:30 in the evening.  Oh in case I forgot to mention…my neighborhood is full of hills…very big hills that are equivalent to putting the treadmill on a 10 incline.  It’s a workout.  But afterwards I just felt great!  For those of you starting out on the healthy track or you started a new year’s resolution but then it faded…it’s never too late to start again!  Grab a friend, your husband, hell…even grab a kid or two if you have to and get moving!
