The love/hate relationship

It’s a love/hate relationship.

Today is day 6 of working out. I actually lost 2 two pound last week and I’m thrilled! I could not believe the numbers on the scale! Let me tell you about the love/hate relationship that I have. As I have gained continuous weight in the past 10 years, I’ve had to move the seat in my car further and further back. I’m not that tall and at this point, my legs cannot stretch anymore to reach the pedals. For the first time in 10 years I actually have a little extra space between my belly and the steering wheel. I love the little extra amount of space; however, I hate the amount of crunches that I have to do. They are not easy, but very motivating.

I sit at work for hours at a time and my posture has been improving. I also have a little extra space between my belly and my desk. Sitting at my office chair is becoming a little bit uncomfortable because my body wants to move.

If you’re like me, let me go ahead and remind you that it is totally worth it! Even starting out with 10 and increasing the number as the days go by, you will see the difference.  Please share your story with me, we’ll laugh together.
