I completed Day 1 of Whole 30 yesterday. I feel like I deserve an award or something like that. Maybe a ribbon. While I have felt so run down, I have not had the energy to even really care about what I was eating. Sure, I knew it was bad for me but I absolutely did not care.
Now that I am beginning to feel better, I am assessing where I am physically. I don't like what I see. Trying to find the motivation to buckle back down is a little tough mentally right now. I feel like I have so much to catch up on.
Having a chronic illness stole so much from me. Now I'm just angry. Not only did being sick bring on the pounds, but it took a lot from me. It took my ambition and happiness. I missed things. I've got a lot to make up for.
I had an amazing Zumba® fitness class last night! Being gone for several weeks was torture. I came back to smiling faces and a few new ones. We rocked a couple of new songs and it just felt so good to physically be able to workout. When I walked away from my last class a few weeks ago, I called my husband in tears. I told him I just could not teach another class until I had a treatment. My body was done.
Coming back was just awesome! I am sore today, but it's a good kind of sore for once. My body worked and it feels the pain of being challenged. I have never been so happy to have sore muscles.
What are you happy about today? What are you working on this week?
