There are a few things in my life which I am looking forward to this year and getting into shape is one of them. I am on my way to a new body, a new me, and a new outlook on the new life I will have when I want to get to the weight I want to be. Today, I was exercising on the treadmill and it was one of the most painful days ever in terms of the lower leg calve muscles which were burning so much and that burn pain made me go crazy on the treadmill, tears were rolling down my cheeks of how excruciating it was and it almost hit my heart. I was not going very fast either. I was just doing a brisk walk and boy did it really hurt, but that burn pain will go away soon and I will begin to walk on the treadmill without the pain and I will see the weight coming off even more.
I am going into my third week into my exercise and my family and friends that have seen me have noticed that my body has changed slightly but It is going well and drinking a lot of water I find is making my body more hydrated, my skin, my face, my hair feels more hydrated and vibrant. I am eating very small portions, and I am not eating late. I feel a burst of energy and I feel so great after the exercise I am doing. It hurts like H E double L, but I am not going to let that be a setback and I will not slack off. As I am on the treadmill I have my TV in front of me, I put music on in my Ipod, or play with my blackberry playbook and watch Youtube Video’s while I exercise.
After I lose about 30 pounds or so, I will be taking up Yoga. I decided to today. I am going to sign up for classes and improve my breathing when stretching and share my experiences with other people in the class with me. After my exercising improves and when I lose a lot more, I am going to join a gym as well for ladies and make friends with others who are trying to get fit like me and share our eating habits, what each person does to make lifestyle changes, the type of foods consumed. I am super excited for all of this. I can join it now, but I want to start out on my own and search the internet, and then work my way up to join the public.
I am patient and I am not going to overdo it to prevent myself from discouragement and I will not give up even when I am in the most terrible lower leg calve muscle pain ever. No pain No Gain.
I can do this!
