I'm Feeling Better

I didn't get a chance to blog on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day so I thought I would start this blog out with some of his inspiring words. I have had an amazing start to my week, I made my decision to start my Beach Body Slim in 6 weeks program and let me just say that while it is kicking my butt (REALLY BAD), I have had so much energy and have felt awesome! I have not only been doing that though, I have also been making my Nutribullet shakes, doing relaxing yoga and breathing techniques to help lower my stress. I'm sure your probably wondering, "what the heck is wrong with you?" That I would just up and start a program to lose weight and of course one of the most obvious answers to that question is that I'm tired of my endurance being that of a 40 year old. Another answer is that my mother, without my knowledge, signed me up to be a Beach Body coach and bought me the program so I should probably use it ...and there are about 20 more answers to that question all that add up to the fact that I not only need exercise, but that professional help would be recommended as well. One thing I have been noticing is that my stress levels are a lot lower than usual and that my nerves haven't been a problem for me at all. Not saying that I am a super stressed person, but I do have anxiety and my mind hasn't been as cloudy as normal. These exercises also are absolutely amazing! The first few workouts are easy and then they progressively get harder as you go along. When I was thinking about this I was thinking, "How am I going to find the time in the day?" But, think about it...It is winter and unless you are working, do you really go out and do something twenty four seven in the winter time? Nobody does and in the summer time most people are running around and getting exercise just by playing outside with family, but in the winter how are you getting your blood pumping???? Chances are that the majority of time your not working you are sitting still. Well I'm a stay at home mother so lately I have been noticing that the majority of my time is spent on my butt. It's the truth I'm either on my computer, watching TV, and I do my chores around the house but that isn't enough exercise to make me energized. In fact, most of the time with depression I feel stripped of energy, down, and like I can't get up in the morning. So because of that I've decided to add my Beach Body transformation onto my journey of self fulfillment. The most important reason why I want to work on myself is so my son has me for as long as possible. If I spend my life on my butt, eating poorly, and if I feel low about myself it will affect my relationship with him for his entire life. Right now, my son is 2 years old so if I start to change the way I eat, the way I treat myself, and I better myself even in little ways it will make me a better mother as well. Also right now it is winter and if I work on this for a couple months it will be spring, and the next season after that is obviously summer and if I keep it up I can have myself a flat stomach by summer. I'm determined to make this happen and I'm almost done with my weekly goal of completing my workouts everyday and I'm going to take it day by day. With that said though, I love myself, the fact that I'm working out and trying to drop a few pounds doesn't mean that I don't. I believe that the important thing is not only to make yourself the best you, but that even at your lowest times you still have faith in yourself and love yourself enough to want to better yourself. That is the most important thing. Because as my mother has always told me, You can't love anyone until you love yourself. If you are also on this journey to make yourself from weak to strong I would encourage you to make that the number one thing you want to accomplish if you don't feel that way. There is nothing more important than knowing your worth, knowing that you can accomplish anything, and having faith in yourself to be able to make the journey. No one else can accomplish your dreams for you, it is up to YOU to have enough respect and love for yourself to want to better yourself. Just to show you that no one matter what your goals are I am working to become strong as well I am sharing my beginning measurements with you! These are my starting measurements and when six weeks is up I will post my ending measurements:) 
CHEST- 38 inches 
WAIST- 31 inches
HIPS-  39 inches 
L. ARM- 12 inches
R. ARM- 12 inches

Fantastic blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
