Well, it has officially been two months since I started with this fitness challenge.
It has definitely been challenging, but fun too. I am down 25 pounds and am feeling better. I am making gains in the gym and getting stronger and improving my cardio.
Zach has stepped up my workouts, and they continue to increase in number sets and intensity. Sometimes I just look at him and think, "you want my body to do what?"
But in the end, he knows best and he knows that I can do more than I think can. It actually feels good to come out of a workout session, knowing that I have pushed my body to it's limits. It also feels good to be eating healthy. I was so excited that this week I realized that I no longer struggle daily with the "munchies". I do not crave chips anymore unless I see them. I no longer think about them when they are tucked away in the cupboard! I am starting to enjoy thinking of creative healthy options. My taste buds are beginning to like things that I have hated for years. (It is amazing what tastes "sweet" when you are not eating sugar!) All this in only two months! I get excited to think about the changes I will have made in a year from now. As always, I am so very thankful for this opportunity, for Anytime Fitness, for Zach my trainer, and for supportive family and friends.
