To say I am in a world of hurt today would be a bit of an understatement. I swear, every muscle between my shoulders and my knees is aching today. When I woke up in bed this morning, rolled over and felt my muscles cringe…all I could do was smile because it tells me that they got a workout last night. My normal 7-10 min walk to the skytrain took almost 15 mins this morning. Meego kicked my behind yesterday and I loved every minute of it. When working with a new trainer I think it takes time to learn their style and how they operate and I noticed some expectations that were carrying over from my time with my Seva ladies, so this is definitely stretching me outside my comfort zone. One of the most uncomfortable things from the session yesterday….not the workout itself, but the fact that once again I noticed that I was 1 of 2 women in the facility and was once again the largest person in there. The little thoughts that kept creeping up and I kept pushing to the side. It doesn’t matter that I don’t have the ideal body type or the six pack abs or can punch like some of those MMA fighters in there…what matters is that I am working on it. I am stepping outside my comfort zone, switching this up, doing what I love.
Food was a breeze yesterday. I have been instructed to keep my calories between 1700 and 1800 on a daily basis. I am not going to starve myself. I am going to do this is the healthiest way possible, that has always been my intention.
Today brings a new set of challenges in that I was so tired when I got home last night, my food was not packed. I am feeling confident in my choices this morning and know that it is all a decision. I say. Simple as that. This journey is only as difficult as I make. Stepping outside of my comfort zone, communicating, smiling, sweating and kicking some serious ass are the only items on the docket for this 30 day challenge.
