Exercise Gym Reflection

I’m So Worth It!!!

If you’ve read my blog lately, you know that I’m going through a tumultuous time right now. My emotions are running high so I’ve been trying to focus on things I can actually control like working out.

If you workout regularly then I don’t need to tell how how good exercise can be for relieving tension, stress and worry. I usually find myself confident and energized after working out which makes me feel happier, stronger and more capable. Working out is an amazing way to feel instantly good about yourself.

I skipped the elliptical today and did 20 laps in the pool because I’ve been in pain since Monday morning. I don’t mean that I was sore..I’m quite accustomed to that. I mean, part of my body seriously hurts today. I won’t go into detail, but I think if I skip the elliptical machine for one more day it will be better. I’ll just swim again because it’s my new favorite thing. 🙂

One thing that I’ve tried to remember through these tough times is that life goes on either way. There will never be a perfect time to lose weight. Each of us, as individuals, have the opportunity to change right now regardless of our circumstances!

I can’t change the past or predict the future, but I do have the power to make good choices in the present. So stresses and heartache aside, I will continue to eat properly, drink water, increase my heart rate and burn calories because these choices are mine to make. And I’m going to keep working to improve myself inside and out because I am worth the effort.

    Yes, you are worth it; you are special and I love you! Everyday I tell you it will work out, and it will. Right now in your life there is a big cloud cover, but one of the songs I remember is that " Dawn is just in sight" and there are blessing coming your way! I am praying that you can find a place I know you miss being home in New York. Many doors have closed for you in this month and things seem impossible right now; but nothing is impossible with God. Keep up the good work with your weight loss put your trust in God and everything will work out for the good. Remember what your grandpa us to say. Love you MOM

    When life is crazy the only thing we can control is ourselves, what we eat and what we do (exercise).

    You are so worth it and you are taking some steps in the right direction!

    Yes you ARE so worth it, and it is wonderful that this [working out hard, careful eating, drinking water] and overall taking care of you is your plan right now.

    It is easy any time in life to let all that slide, but especially during tumultuous times! Emotions can kind of overtake us a bit, and I am just sooo glad that you are able to focus on this right now and always. Way to go.
