I woke up at 7 like normal and I went to work. Nothing special happened: it was just like any other day. I recently stopped taking the birth control that my doctor prescribed to me for my endometriosis symptoms because it felt like it was doing more harm than good, so my stomach cramps were a bit awful but the Midol I took in the morning seemed to me helping.
When I got home from work, I went straight to the gym in my apartment complex to go running just like I do every other day. (sidenote: I would so much rather go for a run outside, especially with all of this nice weather that we’ve been having, but I do not live in the best geographical area in Louisville, so that isn’t an option.) I never feel like I get as good of a run in when I’m running on the treadmill but it’s a workout none the less.
I only ended up running for ten minutes and making it for a mile today, but then I decided to do the elliptical for another ten minutes to at least get a little more calorie-burning in.
After that was over and I came back to the apartment, I started a 30-minute yoga session right away. It’s kind of been my way of adding to my workout without getting too bored.
Then, after dinner, I still felt like working out more so you wanna know what I did? I jammed out to a 40-minute 90’s hip-hop dance workout video on youtube!
I have to stop here and say I’m sorry for boring you with this long uneventful story of my day, but I am in utter shock right now. Who am I? Who is this woman that I have turned into that actually likes working out?!
I seriously used to be such a lazy person, all the while fooling myself into thinking that it wasn’t me. But it was all my fault all along. It was always my fault for making excuses and not being the person that I could be.
Every day, I cannot believe how different I’ve become in just a few short months.
I quit smoking.
I decided enough was enough and I got healthy.
I started working out daily.
I started eating healthier and actually paying attention to what I’m putting in my body.
I don’t want this to be a “yay me” post but I just want to say that if I can do this, so can you!
Sorry for my rant, but I am glowing with energy and I had to share!
