Since joining RBL in January, I began a workout group at my church. Mainly because I knew at some point RBL would end and I wanted to have a jump-start on a group that will still continue long after RBL ends. Our lady who comes up with the weekly exercise is working on becoming a crossfit instructor and she works on us each week. When I walked in yesterday she had the WOD (WorkOut of the Day) written on the board. I have to say I ’bout had a stroke! 100 shoulder taps, 80 bicycle crunches, 60 air squats, 40 sit ups, 20 push ups. You couldn’t move on to the next exercise until you complete the previous. We had a 15 minute time limit to complete the workout. My body tried to convince me “you can’t do this” – but I kept telling myself “you CAN do this” and I had a super group of ladies who pushed me through as well! When you find yourself on the verge of giving up – You gotta push yourself to keep going (and surround yourself with people who encourage and motivate you)! I honestly don’t know what I would do without my “losers” group!! By the end, I had finished strong, with 30 seconds to spare! You never know what you can or can’t do, if you don’t try; and when you try – try HARD!!
I just turned 49 and decided to take charge of my life! This is my year to get healthy and fit. FITBY50 is my motto.. I know I won't be at my ultimate goal by then, but step by step I know I can do it because "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me". I have a daughter with some disabilities and 2 grandsons I have to keep up with - this is my year!! View all posts by Donna Satterfield
