Don’t Get Frustrated – Colleen At The Ridge
It’s happening, my body is changing! I told you before that I have always been pretty lucky in terms of losing weight quickly (thanks to those before me!).
This time hasn’t been so easy. I hate to admit it, but it’s probably because I am over 40. I have been working out for a few months now, and I wasn’t seeing results as quickly as I would like. I felt like I wasn’t seeing ANY results. Until now. My arms are starting to have some shape and definition to them. My butt is higher! That’s quite a feat. Even when I am super skinny I have a big booty, so that’s alot of lifting!
Speaking of lifting, I am seeing Annie, my supertrainer, twice a week. I have figured out that is my most effective and enjoyable way of working out. When I say enjoyable, I don’t mean fun like sitting at the beach with a fruity drink in my hand, but enjoyable that I feel like I am truly accomplishing something, and seeing the results. When I first started, the leg work about killed me. Now, I look forward to it. I am seeing shape to my legs, and it’s making me feel pretty sassy.
My clothes fit again. That’s a big deal! After having kids and losing the weight, I bought some nice jeans, and other basics, and spent more than I usually would. I didn’t want to go up a size. Now I can fit into those clothes AND breathe!
I was talking to my Mom about spending the money to be at the gym and for thE personal trainer. We DO have three kids, and the economy isn’t great, and I think us Mom’s have a tendency to feel guilty about spending money on ourselves. My mom told me what I already know. I NEED to do this for myself. It makes me feel good, it keeps me healthy, it gives me a little break to be alone, and it shows my kids the importance of being healthy. Plus, I get to eat…ALOT!
