At the beginning of the year I wrote this blog post about being comfortable in my own skin. It was really theraputic and honest for how I felt at the time. I’ve mulled over those words and feelings over and over. After visiting with doctors and having them put me on several medicines I decided enough was enough. I want to be as healthy as possible and try to be as medicine free as possible. I decided to work on my bucket list goals 93 and 94, meet with a nutritionist and personal trainer.
I have been working Mary Dimmick for the last three weeks at the Sport’s Academy and she is wonderful! She is honest, candid, direct, encouraging and a lot of fun to be around. These two goals of mine have intimidated me for years. I decided enough was enough and it was time to push my fears aside. My first meeting with Mary was harder than I thought it would be….but each visit after that gets not only a lot easier, but enjoyable.
I go to the gym nearly every day, taking a quick Instagram photo each time. (some of my faves below) I eat as many whole and unprocessed food as possible. The best thing…I’ve never felt better! I actually really love and look forward to my time at the gym, riding my bike or doing something active. Facing this fear has been really rewarding and I’ve learned a lot about my potential. It’s really rewarding to see what can be accomplished when I believe in myself.
PS If you like Zumba, you really need to come with me to Mary’s classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I have a couple guest passes to the Sports Academy
