100 workouts and proud of it!

I am proud to report that I earned my "100" workout T-shirt this morning when I scanned in for my Curves workout. I can't believe I made it this far. I started this new chapter in my life back in October. Curves would like for you to workout at least 3 times per week, which I tried to keep up with. Of course there were some sick days here and there. I set a goal last month of going every time they are open and I am usually in the parking lot at 5:55 am waiting for the door to open at 6am. Although I have not dropped a lot of weight (due to my eating habits), I have lost inches and am toning and feeling so much better, mentally and physically. I do enjoy going, and that's so important that you enjoy your workout routine, whatever you do.
I have met some wonderful people along the way and we motivate one another. There are all shapes and sizes and no intimidation. I know my heart loves me for going. My doctor told me back in October I needed an exercise program to help my high blood pressure and so I decided to give Curves a try. I am more aware of my portion sizes and snacking has decreased. The night eating has also stopped. Very rarely will you find me standing in the kitchen at midnight getting a bowl of cereal. I am trying to make better choices. It's a struggle.
I plan to walk for the Relay for Life on June 18, along with fellow Curve members. Come on out if you live in the area and join us.
Now, I am working towards my "200" workouts T-shirt.

Exercising & being toned really pays off. Medical personnel are always amazed at how well I transfer from wheelchair to wherever or how well I could move the injured leg, etc. I attribute it all to having spent the last 6 years exercising. If Curves ever offers Zumba, do it. It is so much fun! It is exercising using Latin music and dance steps. You get a real workout too.
