This past weekend I finally met with a trainer for my free session I get for buying a Gold’s Gym membership. I had learned some interesting things I’ve never heard before in my 12 years of researching health and wellness. He showed me some pretty good workouts to challenge my muscles. Then the next day I went in for my weigh in and measurements, as well as my “before” picture, to partake in the 12 Week Challenge. So far, I have lost 2 lbs this week, which is awesome. Hopefully this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship with my food and fitness/gym. I know there will be days I will hate it, and I will resist, however I know I must PERSIST. My only fear is not pushing myself properly. I’m not entirely sure how to push/challenge myself anymore. At least with the 12 Week Challenge, there will be workshops and a coach to help me through. So, I’m sure I will get much use from those services as well as reap some awesome benefits, of course as long as I PERSIST. After a couple of weeks of going to the gym at least 3 times per week, I’m already feeling better, more confident, though. My moods are better, and my energy is improving. It is getting easier to wake up at 5:00/5:30 am when my alarm goes off. It’s amazing how much a difference it quickly makes. My sleep is beginning to improve some, as long as my toddler stays in his own bed all night. I am very much looking forward to increased improvements in my overall health as I continue this journey. Melaleuca is helping as well, with their shakes and exercise bars to help me endure my workouts longer and better, as well as keeping my blood sugar level throughout the day. I’m still working to earn my FitBit Flex for free to help me through this. If you would like to know how you can earn a FitBit Flex at no extra cost ($100 value) and join me on this journey to better health, then let me know. I would love to show you. I know the FitBit will make a world of difference in keeping track with calories and sleep. If you already have a FitBit, please share your experiences with it. How has it helped you?
