In My life this constant struggle of mine to get fit and lose my weight has really been a difficult process. I have always began to exercise for a period of 3 weeks to 3 months and then after that I stop. the first 2-3 months my legs would hurt from the excruciating burn pain behind my calves in my lower legs. It was the worst pain I had ever encountered. I mean I could walk no problem and I have no bone pains or pains in the joints or anything of that sort, but whats stopping me from continuing is the burn pain and I would cry because of it. I know that when that happens its working and my body is getting fit and getting rid of all that pain, but sometimes its so bad that I just quit. I know that is the wrong approach to deal with it as it makes it worse for next time, but this time I am so determined to do so to do it for myself and to do it for my own health and wellness. I have so many travels coming up this year and I want to be able to walk for hours, enjoy without getting tired, getting fit and just not worrying about a place to sit when I can enjoy my travels a lot more.
Since this past Tuesday, I started my exercise, and I started walking outside for an hour or 2 just walking and when the weather is bad I use my treadmill, so on the treadmill for the first 2 weeks I will do 20 minutes, then every week I will add 5 minutes more until I get up to 45 Minutes. I do not want to over tire myself in the beginning and just take my time doing so. The treadmill is such a great workout tool as it helps your whole body to get fit, not just one particular part of the body. I also have a bicycle that I can ride around my area and just go for half an hour. that is not until I get used to my walking and lose about 20-30 pounds in the beginning. My ideal weight that I want to be around is 135 to 140. I do not want to be too too slim either. Just right. After my body gets used to it, I will be signing up for Yoga as soon as my breathing and my workouts get easier and I get more flexible. I will try it with the treadmill then work my way up to all the other fancy stuff as now my body cannot take it.
This time I have the motivation and will power and I will not stop to get myself fit and be on my way to a new me, new wardrobe where I can fit in nice and beautiful dresses, where I can wear bikini’s, where I can be free and walk without getting tired fast, enjoy my new body and my new life, and feel great, more positive. When I look for work or when I get ahead in all this, the employer will see how well I take care of myself and that is another reason why. The employer will see how well you take care of yourself and that gives them a sense of security to think that when she can take care of her body and herself, that means she can take care of my company that I will hire her in. I thought of that of the reason why they might hire me or not hire me. I don’t know thats what my thoughts were on it. I will not give up and I will not be lazy and stop after 2-3 months. I will do my best everyday and not miss a day. I promise you my blog readers, my family, my friends, and everyone who has always advised me to get slim and get healthy. I know I am not doing this for everyone else, I am doing this for myself, but I will make this promise and I will not break it. As proof I will be taking photos of myself of the progress I have made and I will be posting in my blog on my journey to getting fit and I will be posting it on a bi-weekly basis or once a month. You will see the new me and you will see how incredible I will feel.
I will feel much better about myself and I will feel like I am in control which I will be. I know it will be a tough road ahead with watching what I eat and exercising and it is hard work and it takes a lot of patience, but I am up for the challenge and I am up for everything that is involved. Scouts honour to everyone. Here is to a road to success. 🙂
