I have never been one to really push myself at the gym or working out. I have been lucky to be on an average size as far as weight goes without much exercise to maintain it. I never calculated calories or watched what I was eating, but now something is catching on. I would go to the gym and do a little bit in the cardio room and some of the weight machines and call it good usually. Now I go and push myself a little harder or mix it up more than I did the day before. I have been going to the gym four times a week and working out one to two days a week at home. I am watching what I eat as far as calories go and making sure I am getting a variety of food groups. I am not depriving myself of things I crave though haha.
I feel amazing. It has taken almost two months to get to this point, but I feel like I can make goals as far as working out and pushing myself and actually be able to reach them now. I think this is only the beginning because I am actually starting to really enjoy the gym and working out at night and the way I feel after. I have a long way to go as far as fitness goals that I would like to reach on toning my body but I am confident. I ran tonight further than I have in so long and I felt amazing. I love being able to do more and more each week. I think it is what keeps me wanting more.
I also hope when Jason gets back we can go for jogs together and/or workout at the gym more often as something we enjoy doing together. It gives me a little somehting more to look forward to. :)
