Let me start by saying, I didn’t workout this weekend, and I ate good at a fabulous Chinese/Japanese Buffet for my birthday, AND I don’t feel the least bit bothered by it. But, what’s important is, this morning I got right back on track and started my day with a protein shake. During my meeting with my physical therapist last week, she said I need to mix up my workout routine to help get off my plateau.
I went to the YMCA and took a cardio kick boxing class. The instructor looked at me when they did tricky moves and said, “it’s okay if you can’t do it.” At first I was confused, why wouldn’t I would be able to do it? Why is she saying it to me? And then I realized, oh, I’m the new kid on the block and I’m quite a bit heavier than the other students…I just smiled and showed all of them that I may have an extra roll (or 2), but I can run, and squat and kick just like the skinny girls! I love a challenge!
Wow!! You are such an inspiration.
You have convinced me to start running again.
If I did it, I know anybody can!
