I'm at a point in my weight loss journey where I have 5 pounds left to lose. I've grappled with these last few pounds - will it make me feel happier if I lost them? Does it really make a difference? Honestly, my answer depends on how I'm feeling at that particular moment. Most days those 5 pounds don't matter. They don't define me as a person and at best, the last few pounds would only make my clothes fit a little better.
When I reflect on what I had done differently when I first began my weight loss journey eight years ago, I exercised. I belonged to a gym and went a couple times a week with my boss and best friend. When I got married my hubby became my gym partner and we would wake up super early to get our workouts in before work.
The other day one of my co-workers handed me a 10 minute workout paper. The idea was to repeat the moves 2-3 times a day for a 20-30 minute workout. It had the basic lunges, squats, high knees, high kicks and crunches. While the hubby was changing the little guy for bed I tried it out. I felt so much better after doing it and boy oh boy am I sore today. I had forgotten just how out of the workout routine I am!
I'm hoping that I can stick to this type of a routine and get my tush in gear! I've been sedentary for long enough!
Question of the Day:
I know I'm not the only one with a busy schedule, so tell me - how do you fit in fitness?
Until next time!
