Dear Week 5,
This week I met up with people who I haven’t seen in quite some time. Well, they haven’t seen me in a while and the results (from Results) are becoming really obvious. They asked me which diet I am on and I replied with, “I don’t do diets!” For the first time in my life, I can finally say that I have found the right way for me to lose weight, get healthy and live my life.
Workout 1: This workout was very hard. I was completely sweating like a pig. I am having a hard time typing this right now because I am so exhausted and feeling a bit dizzy.
Workout 2: I am pretty sore today, my butt hurts! I guess that’s a good thing. Compared to yesterday’s, today’s workout was a piece of cake….oh I would LOVE a piece of cake right now…mmmm! Chocolate cake or even some chocolate. Back to reality – 30 second planks are no problem now – yay! I can really feel my core getting stronger and stronger.
Workout 3: Today’s workout was really challenging! But life is not a pony ranch and this body is not going to work itself out (unfortunately). So, I did this workout and was really glad afterwards. I can’t even explain how awesome the feeling is after I finish a good workout. No matter how much I don’t want to do a workout, the feeling after is 10 times better than the bad and unmotivated feeling in the beginning. That’s one of the main things I try to focus on.
Workout 4: This workout was really short, but intense. I really like workouts like these because it’s a reminder you don’t need a lot of time to get the job done. And, with my crazy schedule, I really do not have much time to spare. Perfect workout, really!
So, I am still feeling pretty awesome! I have changed the way I live and the way I eat and I’m even getting the kids involved too (they have fun cooking with me). And, unlike diets, it’s a way of living and eating that I can honestly imagine doing for the rest of my life. In fact, I would love to live this way for the rest of my life. I have never felt this much energy and this much confidence in a long, long time. Maybe even ever?
Runtastic Results. Time for a transformation!
