This morning I hit the gym at 6:45 to walk for half an hour and do 3 rounds of a weights circuit. I looooooooved doing the weights because I get to stare at myself in the mirror while doing them.
Does that sound weird and self-centered? It might, but for some reason doing that gives me a ton of confidence. I can literally see where my legs have gotten smaller and stronger. I can literally see where inches have melted away from my body. In my mind I will always have that image of myself at my highest weight and it will always be there to compare my current body to. Right now the comparison is good and it gives me a lot of confidence.
It also makes me want to do more squats.
Like a lot more. Squats are totally my new best friend in the gym, by the way. And burpees.
I think a lot of times when you lose weight super slowly or change your body super slowly, other people either can’t see it or they aren’t impressed.But I looked at myself in the mirror every day for many years weighing 250-260 pounds without an inkling of muscle. So excuse me if I’m impressed with myself even halfway through my journey. Because I am. I am very impressed.
I love the mirror and I love the gym. It gives me this confidence.
After leaving the gym this morning and feeling so good about myself, I decided I need to schedule in a morning workout every day. I’m feeling oh so super busy between work (trying to get ready to take time off and finish big projects), life (family and lots of doctor/dentist appointments and all), but it’s important for me to make the time in the morning because of how good I feel during and after the workout.
