The First Day
Monday, February 25, 2008
This is the first day of my Turbo Slim program. If you have never heard of Turbo Jam, it's this super program put on 5 dvd's and lead by this cute, energetic little blonde lady name Chalene Johnson. If you are interested I suggest going to Google and typing it in. I had seen the infomercial for it on several occasions. I was always curious but, never made the call. Well, a few weeks ago, I couldn't sleep and was flipping channels and stopped when I saw Chalene. The program is so upbeat and infectious. I decided to call and order it. Well, then I had to wait forever to get it. I am not always the most patient person in the world. But I was excited. I couldn't wait to get started. So I went to the website and started to check out the message boards. I saw lots of pictures of people who had lots of weight to lose. I also saw the results from just 3 or 4 days of doing the work out.
The thing is that I have never been that athletic. I never participated in sports in school. It wasn't that I had a weight problem, I guess it was the condition of my spine. Although I didn't know what was medically wrong with me for many years, I knew there was something about me. Just a few years ago I met a Chiropractor who did an x-ray on my spine and told me that my 3 lowest vertebra were fused together when I was being formed in my mom's womb. I am getting a second opinion, but what ever the outcome, I know that I have had difficulty most of my adult life. I can walk normal, but my knees are knocked. My hamstrings are very tight and my hips are tight also.
So, here I am about to begin something that will be very difficult for me. But I just have to know that if I don't do something about my physical condition I will just get worse. I know it is going to take alot of stretching to regain my flexability and it will be a bit more challenging than the average person, but in looking around here at SP, there are lots of people who are facing the same kinds of challenges.
I know I can do this. It's gonna take alot of pain and determination, but I cannot accept the alternative.
