As we are soon approaching the half of 2017 I will all tell you how I started my “fitness” journey.
I have been typical woman who used to eat a lot of bad food and not worrying about my lifestyle at all. I used to tell myself every day that I have to start to look after my health and obviously I wanted to lose some weight.
As my life is very busy with working for PCS plus being a mother and wife I never tried to find enough time for myself but then I have realise that’s all only excuses and if you really want something in your life just get up and go and get it.
My main motivator its Monika, not only is she a brilliant work colleague but I found in her amazing friend.
I remember the days when she used to come to see me in the office and she was asking me “Have u sign up for the gym yet”? And my response always was NO as I am very busy.When she asked me that many times, she was fed up with so she actually dragged me out of the office and took me to the gym (need to mention that the gym is just round the corner from the office).
Once I have sign up, Monika always texted me and we meet together at the gym, she was showing me what to do, because I felt a bit intimidated going on my own as I have no idea what to do and I felt that everyone will be looking at me and thinking “oh my god look at that woman what is she doing here?” but than I discovered that everyone is going to the gym for the same reason, everyone is there to became healthy and fit.
Monika also thought me in to dieting and all that good stuff J.
When she started to work with me in the office we have tried several diets together such as “21 day smoothie challenge”. First when she mentioned I was like “ Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaattt you must be joking” but she encouraged me and we went through those 21 days together. It was very hard for me from the begging as we were only allowed to have 4 smoothies a day and nothing else, no any food. But in the end of it, not only did I lose weight but I realise I am mentally strong as I have manage to go through and I didn’t cheat at all.
Going to the gym it’s always my highlight of the day! I am going daily after work. Not only did I found more friends over there but now I am more fit and healthy. I managed to run on the treadmill 12 non stop on the speed 11 which for someone might sounds like “easy pezzy” but trust me for someone who never used to run before it’s a big achievement.
As one of my favourite things is shopping (well who doesn’t love shopping?)I now enjoy going to my favourite shops and purchase smaller clothes for myself J. I feel more confident in myself and also I started to help my other friends .Trying to guide them to healthy lifestyle. I have bought several cook books and I enjoy cooking healthy meals for me and my family.
I guess I wanted to tell you that it’s never to late to make some good changes in your life, the first step its always the hardest but once you make that step trust me you will be happier person.
My favourite quote now is “Believe you can and you are half way there”.
“Don’t wish for it WORK for it “and “No matter how slow you go you are still lapping everybody on the couch.”
