Like I mentioned in my first post, I’ve recently started getting healthy. What I have found is balance not only in my life but balance in what I do to be healthy is most important. Here is what I’ve been doing to get healthy.
- Lifting weights 3x a week
- Doing elliptical 3x a week
- Running 4x a week
- I’ve been counting my calories as well and found that around 2,000 calories for my activity allows me not to be hungry and loose weight
Now, with all my workouts I switch up my speeds and weight to continue making it interesting and fun.
My results so far following this plan has given me more energy, I’m happier, I feel better and I don’t fit in pretty much all my clothes now.
When I started this almost 90 days ago I weighed 220. I now weigh 188. To me, it’s not really even about the weight. It’s how I look. I’ve almost lost my belly completely and see the signs of my six pack coming through.
What I didn’t realize is my confidence as a person and in what I wear has changed dramatically. I now believe I deserve respect and believe that I’m Someone who deserves to be happy and will stop at nothing to continue my journey.
It’s amazing how you can start one task/goal and it can lead to helping you with other areas of your life. I now understand all these areas I’m progressing on go together hand and hand.
