Day 2 and I’m through. Let me tell you it wasn’t easy. Today was leg day, and I and my bad knees did all kinds of squats, lunges, kicks, and side lunges. Some of the exercises used weights, and some didn’t, but the good news is I got through it all. I’m gonna try to rise and grind at 4am tomorrow. And a side note: exercise is good for blowing off steam, decreasing stress and anxiety, and reducing depression. At least it helps me, but I think there’s some evidence-based practice out there that speaks to that truth too.
I had to do some serious stretching after today’s workout because my body was hurting. It’s crazy because I’ve been consistently working out without a break since the last challenge, which ended Friday for me. So, why my body is hurting so much, I don’t know. Anyway, I am so tired and sleepy. But I wanted to stop by and journal my experience for those who are taking this ride with me. Remember one day at a time because it’s easy to put on excess weight, but it takes dedication, consistency, and a made-up mind to get it off. That means working out even when you don’t feel like it when you’re sleepy when you work more than one job or have school. It means that your/my health is just as important as the other things I get up and do despite not feeling like it. Because I don’t know about you, but I’m not doing handstands and blowing whistles when it’s time to get up for work at 5am, LOL! But in employment, health, or playtime, it costs to be the boss. Now boss up and get to taking care of you. We can make this lifestyle change together:) I’m with you!
Until Next Time,
