We Can Do This

Hi my name is Lori Cloud and I am a part of the GHS Simpsonville YMCA group. On Sunday I went to the YMCA for the first time for my wellness assessment and I was scared to death. I have not visited a gym and performed a full workout since I was in college. It really hit me after my assessment how out of shape I truly was. My HR shot up after performing the 3 min step test and I was sweating and sore just after the assessment stage. That was very discouraging but as I was at the YMCA numerous people came up to me and said congratulations and good luck and “you can do it” After that my attitude changed and I remembered “I can do all things through Christ Who Strengthens me” . Today I struggled all day trying to decide what time I would go do my first workout and started thinking what have I gotten myself into. After taking my 10 year old to a 30 min private tumbling lesson for cheer and watching her determination. I made my mind up that I could and would do it! On the way to the YMCA my daughters both told me how proud they were of me and that they were excited about me getting healthy and loosing weight. That is exactly what I needed, what support from a 6 year old and 10 year old. I completed my first Ativtrax workout today and although I am sore I feel great! Thank you Rob and HIS radio for this opportunity, I hope to make God, myself, my family and you all proud!! I look forward to meeting with my team all together for the 1st time Thursday night. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!
