So today was the day I started to work out again. For the past week I woke up with the intention every morning but honestly motivation has been lacking. Until I read a post from Jen over at momspotted.com (check her out she's awesome) this lady lost 30lbs!!! I've been following her journey for a while and it's honestly inspirational.
I was doing pretty good myself I lost 15lbs doing p90x and was feeling on top of the world until I fell and broke my arm. For a month I slowly watched the weight I lost come back, now I know I'm by no means fat I am in fact 120lbs and size 5.
However I try to stay healthily for many reasons:
1, I have a small body frame and while I am small since having my children I have a muffin top and any weight I gain always goes straight to the belly area. I cried not to long ago because a woman asked if I was newly pregnant....nope no babies in my belly!
2, I have IBS when my diet is under control and I'm working out I see a huge difference in my symptoms. Believe me it sucks being scared to eat out in case you need to use the bathroom in a hurry.
3, I have Cerebral Palsy and while mild I need to work at keeping my muscles loose. If I gain 5lbs I really feel it in how I walk or the pain I feel.
So as you can see its basically an over all fitness life style choice and I want to feel good about myself which honestly I haven't been.
Tonight I did 30 minutes work out one of the Jillian Michaels Ab routine.. Lord oh Lordy was it hard I felt like I was going to pass out! But I will make it I promise myself that.
