I'm kinda giddy about working out. It's weird. I have a true love hate relationship with it. I always have. But even though I hate the idea of going to the gym and the idea of waking up to go and workout, I have to say, I pretty much love it when I finally get my start.
I've worked out before. I've gotten some results before, but i've never had definition. I've definitely lost weight before (and then gained it back) but I've never ever, had results before that I'm truly proud of. I'm very proud of myself. It's been almost a year of going to the gym (April 1st) consistently and of doing weights. I've fought my hubby for years on the whole weight lifting thing—"weight lifting is for guys" or "I don't want to bulk up"... pretty much any excuse to lose weight by just doing cardio and cutting my eating in half.
I've lost weight before. But never like this.
I'm not there yet, but I'm halfway there. I'm pretty damn proud of the fact that I'm actually getting cut. So here's my official, I'm sorry, to my hubby. You were so right. Lifting weights really is the key to getting big results. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would have definition in my stomach or wear a Victorias Secret bikini. I've got more work to do before I rock this in Aruba, but I'm almost there. And today is my official start of Ab Ripper X. So I'm expecting to be seeing amazing results by then (I have this really hot friend that swears by it).
I can't believe I'm putting this online. But I'm damn proud. Even if I'm not there yet.
