Hello my friends!! So first off this blog isn’t to make anyone feel bad that hasn’t picked up the time to workout, or me showing off in any way. It took me literally about 40 years to say wow I actually like working out for myself. I wanted to share a brief story on my workouts. Not necessarily what I do but why I do it. I feel like mental health is the most important and here is my story.
So once I hit 40 I knew I had to take way better care of my mind and body. I noticed a change in my moods during that time of the month. It was almost uncontrollable. I also noticed it was harder to keep off weight. I was never over weight, but I’m a petite person so it’s noticeable to me when I gain. I have never been the athletic type. But I’ve always tried to remain active on some level. But never consistent. I wanted to try something that I can stick to and not get tired of. I started the sweat App and I love it so much. I also have always liked a good Zumba class, unfortunately I found a great one with lovely ladies literally 2 months before the pandemic started. I can’t wait to go back to class one day.
So what made me start to be more consistent, I have always had tummy issues and after 40 I noticed way more things were upsetting my tummy. I really started watching what I eat more and more. After us being quarantined I think we all can relate to a few extra pounds especially less movement. That got to me, I felt so sluggish. I knew I had to be even more consistent and be harder on myself with what I put in my system. And to be honest I’m still working on that, I love sugar, UGH! So I made a promise that 2021 I’m going to really focus on my mind and body, and I can say I’m on the right path. No one can make you start, it has to come from yourself. And it might not be easy but believe me if you stick to it and push yourself you will feel great!
One more month till I’m 42 and I feel the most strongest in my mind and body! And I’m not done. It’s not about how much weight or the Abs or summer body. I’m passed that, this is a journey to be healthy inside and out. It’s a path I plan to stay on. I want to be here for my family and be healthy for them.
I really hope this finds you well, and good luck to you who are on this path. Cheers to us. Till next post
