Today I celebrate my growth, determination, and the challenges I’ve overcome. BBG is healthy to my mind. Back in December I saw myself growing frustrated and sometimes taking my frustration out on others (mainly the hubs). I knew and he knew. I knew I needed to be working out. Giving myself some me time as creating a more positive state of mind.
These past 9 weeks have felt great. At times, work can be so stressful. I like having something else to look forward to, and a way to relieve the stress I carried throughout the day. And goodness, these winter months! I feel like I literally live in a hunched up ball, wrapped up in a blanket. When I exercise, my entire body feels more awake, more alive. I know I stand taller and I just feel BETTER. I know this to be true, and yet still sometimes I fall out of a workout routine. I want to remind myself of this the next time I go a week without phyiscal activity….
So, today I celerbate myself and my happiness. The beginning of BBG was rough. I pushed off my workouts every night. I wouldn’t even begin the workout until some time after 9:30pm. Through my struggles and lack of motivation the hubs was there to support me, sometimes watching me during my workout to be the coach I needed to press on. And other times he supported be by doing a little extra around the house as I made more time for physical fitness in my day. Nine weeks in, I truly feel like I have made it a habit.
Cheers to being happy.
Oh- and one other real fancy Saturday celebration… someone I love dearly will be getting engaged this evening. Tears roll down my face because I am overcome with joy.
Life is good!
