I’m off to a great start! The one thing I learned this first week that is the best advice I can give to others is that "IT'S ALL MENTAL!"
I am working out at Northern Ohio Medical Fitness Center with my trainer Barb Biltz. She is great, along with everyone else at NOMS. The support is definitely there for me.
I am also very blessed to have my husband supporting me, along with the rest of my family. Having the support no matter where I am is a big key in my success.
I had not worked out since March of last year and I was scared walking into the gym for the first time. Mentally, I was telling myself there was no way I was going to be able to do all the activities that were expected of me. Well, I was wrong.
Day One, Barb put me to the test. I am on a six-day workout schedule that includes cardio, strengthening, sculpting, Pilates and power yoga classes, as well as swimming.
Spinning is my new-found friend. I hope to add Barb’s spinning class to my workout. Spinning burns so many calories.
I have also changed my diet. I drink water all day. This is a challenge for me because water was something I never drank. I also eat a lot healthier. Barb and I will be working more on my diet this upcoming week.
With all this being said, I feel a lot better physically and mentally. I have showed myself I can do this so now I just have to show everyone else. I look forward to this upcoming year.
