V-Day and a personal observation!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!

I hope your day is filled with LOVE!  If it wasn’t, it is now, because I love you all!!!  >—^-^—<

Those are HUGS coming at Yas!  I thank you for taking the time to read my little blog!  It means so much to me that maybe I can inspire someone to take any step towards being healthier in their life.

Now on to my observation…

I will say, that when I look at myself, although I still have some lingering body-image issues, I would say that by most people’s standards, I am “fit”.  I look strong, I have fairly descent musculature, and I obviously put effort into taking care of myself.  I do workout HARD!  I lift heavy, do a lot of HIIT training, I do FIT and Zumba, and I am getting back to running more again.  I am going to tell you RIGHT NOW!  NO matter WHAT you do, NO matter how “fit” you think you are, there is ALWAYS room for improvement!  I can not remember EVER being as sore as I am today!  OH MY GOODNESS!!!  The last two days workouts have been CRAZY, and I am sure tonight at Legacy Martial Arts is going to be just as tough!  BJJ and MMA classes are definitely taking my core to a new level.  I just hope once all these little muscles recover and build, that they burn off all the fat around them and I can finally SEE them!  Of course, some of them are those DEEP muscles between my ribs and deep in your back and sides.  And WHEW do those babies HURT!  And since we did MORE shrimping yesterday, so my booty is on fire!!!

OK…that kind of sounded like whining, but it really isn’t.  I LOVE IT!  I LOVE that I can work my body that hard that I feel like this!  I sat on the side lines for so long!  Someone recently asked me if I had regrets.  I admit that I do.  I feel like I missed out on truly living for so long!

BUT NOW…I am happy!  I have a great support system in my husband and family and friends who care about me.  I may not be able to get all those years back, and I don’t know what the future brings, but I plan to LIVE each day to the fullest while I can.  I will treat the present like the gift that it is!

MAKE today GREAT!!!
