Colleen At The Ridge: Ouch!
Went to The Ridge today to meet with Annie, the super-trainer! Once again, so happy with The Ridge for hooking me up with her. She's sweet, funny, beautiful...and SO MEAN to me! Actually, she has a way of getting me to push myself, without actually hurting myself. We did alot of interval training, which is how I like to work out. You keep moving, and it's always something different. I worked every muscle in my body, and can already feel it. I love that feeling!
I was so sick for about a year. Every time I did any kind of physical activity, I would be drained. I felt awful all the time. If I did work out, I would be out for days. That's how I got to hate working out. I had always been so active, and then I got to a point where it just became too much. Not anymore. I was working out, sweating like crazy, and feeling better than I have in a long time. It's funny how you take little things for granted until you lose them. I am sleeping again. I have energy. I am actually enjoying physical activity again. Life is good.
This past weekend, I was walking with my Emma and she said, "Mom, I am so glad you are you again. It's nice that you can go walking with me again." That is when I realized that I have made the right decision to join The Ridge. I am looking forward to the warmer weather, to alot more walks with my babies, and this summer at the lake. That first step was the hardest, but it gets a little easier every day.
