Oh my goodness! I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT!

8 Apr

I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT! 

Oh my gosh. Planet Fitness offered an amazing membership option…a special sign up fee of $1 each for me and a friend, and a NO COMMITMENT membership plan of $10 a month. So, how could I NOT!?!?! My daughter and I signed up! And we rocked it!

We LOVED working out on ALL that amazing equipment! And to just use the treadmill….Oh MY GOODNESS! I did NOT KNOW I could do all the amazing stuff I CAN DO!

I have to say, right off, eating healthfully has made SUCH a huge difference! It’s given me the strength, the stamina, the energy to even WANT to workout! Wow!

I am just going to lay it all on the line, here, for you. I started, February 25th, on this leg of my journey. At a doctors appointment, to address ‘sleep apnea’ my weight was….(gulp) 301.+ pounds. That, is, um, large. (blink blink) This morning I was 278.2. That’s an average of 3.8 pounds a week. JUST changing my eating and getting more rest and DEALING with stress.

Um. Wow.

I am just now, these last week and a half, maybe two weeks, really starting to WORKOUT with any regularity….and like I said, I just WANT TO! Yeah! SHOCKER, RIGHT?!

 

Image I used this…a LOT! I like, like, like this one!

It’s called the Cap Barbell 45 Degree Hyperextension.

I wish I could find a list of ALL the equipment there. I want to make a routine, and ALL of the equipment is NEW and FOREIGN to me…! 🙂

I can’t even begin to express how I feel after a workout. Happy. Yes I can…I feel HAPPY!

Anyhow, I just HAD to share. I’m so thrilled to see this part of me blossoming. I love feeling MUSCLES under the fat. I am so happy that my ankles are getting stronger. That is amazing.

Wow. Ok. I’m done. 😉

Tomorrow is a low key day. Stretches and yoga.

I love loving my body.

Be blessed.
