I can hold a handstand. It may only be for about three seconds, but at the start I struggled to do a handstand against a wall.
Getting back up. I recently hurt my knee and had to start physical therapy. I bruised the bone and had water on my knee. I’m not currently allowed to run, jog, or do leg workouts, but I’ve found other ways to get my cardio in without causing more damage to my knee as it heals.
This is a very recent accomplishment. I got my backbend and I actually couldn’t believe it.
I got my splits!!!!Just starting is my biggest achievement so far. I didn’t think I would be able to do any of this before I started. I am so thankful I took a leap of faith and started when I doubted I could do it. I’ve learnt so much about exercise and nutrition and that I can do more than I think. I want to continue to push myself and continue to learn.
I don’t have a six pack yet, but I’m working towards it and I’m amazed by the progress I’ve made. I feel better and have a so much more energy, it’s actually crazy to me. One of my favorite quotes is “why do something tomorrow that you can do today,” and as a procrastinator it helped to make me start. I said so many times I’ll start tomorrow, but I never did and then one day I said I’m doing this. That moment I got dressed and went to the gym. I had no idea what I was doing and was so sore the next day, but to me it meant that I had done something. This is a picture from the day I started going to the gym.Their have been lots of times that I wanted to quit because it would be easier, but then I remember how much happiness I’ve gotten from working out and all the progress I have made. I almost didn’t include my transformation so far, because I’m not at my goal yet, but I’m really proud of myself and my transformation so far. I’m happier have more energy, and I didn’t expect how much working out would help me mentally. I don’t worry about weight, or count calories, I just focused on how I feel.
I am still improving and I’m looking forward to where I will be a year from now. I usually don’t write post this long, but so much has happened in the past few months. Being confident in my own skin is something I’m still working on and please remember that confidence comes from the inside. If an outfit or makeup or whatever else makes you feel more confident or beautiful then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks and if someone doesn’t like it it’s their problem to deal with.
If you have a goal you are working towards please leave a comment down below as I would love to hear them(they don’t have to be fitness related). I hope you liked this post x
