Okay so the trainer that works at the gym gave me a new approach that he wanted me to try to my workout. It’s just a way to switch things up a bit and give my body a surprise jolt and give it something else to get used to. So far so good. It seems to be working out pretty good and I feel like I am pushing myself to another new level in my working out.
I’m pushing myself to do things that I wasn’t really sure I could do but have been pleasantly surprised in finding out that I can really do anything I set my mind to. I really am feeling the change in my body and people are also starting to take notice in the changes as well. I feel muscles developing where they once were but had gone away.
I feel stronger and more resilient lately and while I can’t say that I don’t have my repeated share of injuries still, I can say that I never let it stop me. I suppose I even feel my stomach shrinking in terms of my eating because, while I have never been a person that can eat a lot in one sitting (I literally can get full in about 7 or 8 bites of food), I find myself getting full in even less bites, and I am having to really learn how to scale down my portion sizes because I just can’t eat much at all. I am snacking better, making sure to snack on fruits and nuts or even drinking coffee late because that will actually make me feel full and not hungry.
I have even managed to have willpower and stay away from most sweets. That’s not to say that I won’t ever have anything sweet again but I know that I have to refrain from it for a while so that I can give in to my sweet tooth so easily. I am very proud in my progress and I am looking forward even more to seeing where this journey is going to lead me to.
