13. Fitness and health-related issues
I started on January 25th on my fitness journey, to lose 10 pounds in a month, actually 10 pounds in 21 days, but this is the thing ...I don't have the same resistance that I had before covid. My lungs don't let me breathe as they used to before. I know it's going to take some time.
I remember the workout for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and they were fine. When the Thursday workout came, I had to stop. It took me longer than all the other workouts and I hadn't realized that my lungs have been affected. Now that I am struggling it’s when I am realizing that we get to take care of our bodies. It's not a punishment. It's a blessing that we get to work out. There's a lot of people out there that for one reason or another, can't work out or can't work out as you can.
Well, let me tell you, when you really don't want to do something, you always find an excuse not to do it. If you don't put something as a priority in your life, you'll always find excuses and those excuses will only satisfy you.
If you want to get into a health and fitness journey, I will say there are five things that are really important for you to get into it and be disciplined and create a routine about it.
Number one is picking your workout time. Knowing ahead of time, what time you're working out.
Number two, that would be picking your soulmate workout.
Number three community.
Fourth is meal planning.
The last one is tied to meal planning, which Is your meal prepping.
There you go.
I am a coach and I help women find self-love, confidence, inner strength, and inner beauty after a toxic relationship. I was there and I want to help you be better. That is how I found my self-love the first time around, through health and fitness. When I couldn't stand to look at myself in a mirror, I started doing this. Fitness has a very special place in my heart because, after my toxic relationship, that is exactly what gave me life.
That is why I decided to talk about this today.
