Changes So Far
Thursday, April 17, 2014
I have joined spark coach and today's assignment is to blog about improvements I have noticed in overall since taking better care of myself. Since I began (before sparking)I have lost 22lbs. Now that may not seem like a lot but I am quite petite and 20lbs on my frame is equivalent to a lot more on someone who is average or tall in stature. My flexibility has increased significantly. I am as flexible as I was at 19! Bending, getting up and down, doing stairs and walking are effortless. Before I was constantly achy, tired, sore joints, and bloated. I drink lots of water and I never skip breakfast any longer. I can easily go for an hour fast paced walk and have energy to spare all day. I sleep better and wake up easier too. My colouring has improved so much so I rarely ever wear make up! I have been told I look 15 years younger, that is weight and attitude. Being constantly exhausted is aging. I also find I am more positive and do not get low like I used too. A year into my journey I learned that I was very deficient in Vitamin D, B, and magnesium, since taking vitamins I feel 110% better! I am able to do more in life. Before everything felt like a chore. I have kept with all my mini goals. Waking up to peppy music, reading inspirational quotes, walking, and drinking water. I still have a ways to go, like being consistent with exercise and being even more picky about portions. I am 136lbs today and it been 7 years since I was this weight.
