Three weeks ago today, my life changed.
Ha! Sounds so dramatic, right? But seriously...it was 3 weeks ago when I sat down with my husband and told him I needed to make a serious life change. I wasn't sleeping well, my skin kept breaking out, I was always tired and had no energy left after work. Not to mention the spare tire that was beginning to form around my waist...gahh.
So what did he do? Supported me 100%. He ran to Meijer to buy me my first protein shaker, as well as my first container of pre-workout AND protein. He also told me we were signing up for the gym together (I was reluctant at first because I didn't want to pay for it -- but it really is too good of a deal to pass up on!), and he'd help me every step along the way. I love that man.
3 weeks later I am proud to say we've worked out 4x each week. I'm not just talking running... Caleb is showing me how to lift, how to work out my abs, and my legs with all these machines that used to once intimidate me. I'm eating cleaner, and my body feels good.
Its safe to even say I'm a little addicted to the gym. Or maybe its the feeling of accomplishment I get once I leave? Either way, I'm loving it. One of my friends said to me last week, "I'm sure that feeling won't last, no one actually LIKES the gym...", uh, I do.
Its just funny to me, how many "attempts" I've made to eat cleaner/workout, but the health kick would never last more than a week. It truly was joining a gym that made me that much more committed. Something just clicked, and I'm excited.
Remember, if you're wanting to make a lifestyle change...no one is stopping you, but YOU! You can do anything you set your mind too. Promise!
Happy Tuesday, friends!
