So I admit, earlier this year I made a decision to lose weight and what not. I was pretty determined to do so, and yet my mind knew what to do but my body wasn't cooperating much. I've stopped for the last couple of months.
But for some odd reason, earlier this week I had the rush of motivation and the feeling "this is it" the right timing for me. I think the major influence was the past month, I have been cooking alot more and my fiance wanted to eat more hearty. He wanted to lose a few pounds in the next month or so. I enjoy cooking so it wasn't a big deal, and I eat whatever he was eating aswell. Little did I know, the small changes of everyday meals were effecting me. The past month, the soups and lean meals I have prepared for him was actually shedding me about 8-10 lbs total. I stepped on the scale earlier this week, surprised to the change.
Starting 3 days ago, I've started to take 30 minutes (but ended up 1 hour!) night walks around town. Today I've gave the Zumba fitness game I had lying around the house a try, and even for the beginners 20 minutes session was effective. I was sweating so much, it has been quite some time since i've felt so pumped. Later dusted off the exercise bike I've had, and did a15 minute cool down.
I just never seen myself lasting more than 3, 4 days. I hope things are picking up and I don't get burned out. Slowly but surely, i'm taking it one day at a time.
I'm pretty stoked!
And best of luck to everyone on their journey aswell!
