Today I’m reveling in the joy I’m getting from my workouts. This is one of the best parts of starting a weight loss routine! When I first start out I normally feel weak and inflexible. I can hardly complete a push-up. Not anymore!
Yesterday, I started a new section of P90X that was very push-up intensive. When I first saw the required moves I had serious doubts that I would be able to do very much of the workout. However, I powered through it and felt great at the end!
These are the feelings I’m latching on to as I move through this challenge. It’s so easy to convince ourselves that we feel good doing NOTHING or indulging in a rich piece of chocolate cake. I’ve succumbed to this thought process more than once (obviously, or I wouldn’t be writing this blog). All I want to do when I get home is relax. All I want is a bowl of ice cream. Sound familiar?
Now, don’t get me wrong, there are times that relaxing and eating ice cream are very good. But in the long run, I feel better when I’m healthy. I just have to keep paying attention to the daily reminders I’m getting now. 🙂
