They Told Me So

I had such a surreal experience last night/this morning. I worked until 7 last night, came home... ate dinner... went to bed (literally at 9)... then what did I do? I got up this morning without problems and worked out!!

Ok, a month or two ago... that NEVER would have happened. I would have been so wiped after working late... I would have barely been able to get up and go back to work the next day. So, to do it and have no disruption to my routine was even better.

You know, smarter people than me have been telling me for a long time that I needed to work out. Well, we all know (or those that have had WLS) that it's easier said than done when you weigh over 300 pounds... How those football players do it - I'll never know... but that's another topic for another day.

It just amazes me how things can change so quickly... and without a true plan. I mean it's almost been three weeks, and I haven't deviated from my schedule even once... the strange thing to me was that this routine didn't start with a plan. I didn't even think the night before that I would get up and workout the next morning... it just happened in the moment. Just might have been the moment that changed my life too, frankly.

I know I keep saying this, but it still amazes me... this is the FIRST time in my LIFE that I've ever worked out consistently... and I know I have a long way to go... 4 more weeks before it truly is defined as a habit, but the fact that I haven't given up is truly a gift from God.
