After a couple of years in hiatus, I have decided to get back into my fitness. Why this blog, some might ask. Well, it keeps me accountable to start and maybe someone else who is struggling will see that you’re not alone.
When I last worked out with Mark, my personal trainer, I had lost a lot of weight – about 80 pounds. Add on to that, eating better. But without my workouts, I wouldn’t have started eating better, so I still give credit to the work outs. Who the hell wants to work out for an hour and go home just to pig out on junk?? I did…at first. But it didn’t take me long to stop that. In 2021 I ended up gaining all my weight back, plus a little bit more. I had stopped working out, I had stopped eating healthy. I stopped caring. With that attitude, everything with obesity came back – my sore knees, my low energy, my lack of motivation.
I recently suffered a loss in my family and the sadness and depression has become so overwhelming that I contacted Mark and said I needed something to keep my mind off the sadness…even if it’s just for the hour that I’m with him. What have I got to lose? I’ll lose weight, I’ll get some happy endorphins coursing through my body. That’s what’s going to happen.
So, I’m starting back up with Mark. I’ve had 2 sessions already and while I need time to get that “I’m excited for my workout mentaliy” I’m looking forward to seeing the changes my body is going to go through. I did end up losing a little bit of weight on my own so I am still starting at a lower weight than I was when I first met him many years ago. I figure if noone reads my blogs, that’s ok. It’s just a way to keep myself accountable.
Have a great week and make good choices!
