Not Giving Up

I know I post maybe once a month and then BAM! two posts in one day.  🙂  That’s what exercising and inspiration will do to a lady.  
My determined selfie I snuck
at the Y while in motion.

This evening I had free time.  I had time where I could get something done around the house, but I really felt like exercising.  My kids took the car to school today and I got lots done, but I did not exercise and I was itching to do something.   Since the Y is only about 5 minutes from my house, and I had nothing urgent to attend to, I went after dinner and got on the arc trainer.

It didn’t take long before I was in the zone, music pumping on my Pandora “Titanium” station.
The past couple of weeks have brought about some changes for the better in my world.  They’ve brought more moments of soul searching and learning from the recent past about why I am where I am and what I need to do for my future. 
And today as I pushed along on the arc trainer I felt a renewed sense of hope.  I felt strong.  I felt like I used to feel when I would go to the gym to exercise in the past.  
It was such a good feeling.  Determination and hope pulsed through my veins.  
I felt freed by the knowledge that where others I know are in their journeys doesn’t dictate where I need to be; that their stories are not mine.  I’ll expound with more on that subject later, but today I came to a realization that I not only need to take care of my health I want to take care of my health. 
Finding the “why” and the “want to” are HUGE in a health journey and I think I’m finding mine again.  Glory!

    Welcome back!! I'm glad you are still getting in the body pump. Are you running at all?


  4. It is so motivating when you realize that the steps you're taking aren't just because you have to take them, but it's because you want to. Keep it up!
