Back in June, after losing 20 lbs. for the wedding, I thought I was in control enough to quit the YMCA and do it on my own at home. Boy, was I wrong. 5 months later, I hate to admit that not only did I stop working out, but I gained all the weight back.
Enough was enough. As you can tell, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for a while, but I still wasn’t working out, so weight loss has been slow. So, my husband and I rejoined the YMCA yesterday.
Back before the wedding, circuits weren’t too bad. It was hard to do the push-ups and weights, but it wasn’t anything unbearable. However, yesterday, I found myself unable to complete half of most of the exercises. It was really saddening to see my fitness go back down to what it originally was back in January, but it was encouraging to get back to the level that I was back in May.
This morning, I felt all of my muscles slowly waking up (i.e. getting sore) to tell me that they still exist. It was the best feeling ever. I’m so happy to be back!
If you are striving for fitness, when did it hit you that you needed to change your life in a more healthy way? What inspires you?
