My daughter is 4 and half years old .For the last 4 years I’ve told my hubby that I am getting fitter ,mentally !
The amount of exercise I do in my brain could have made me a bikini super model by now.
This year finally I found an answer to my fitness woes.
I had more fun getting fitter ,than ever before.
The lessons I learned :
#1 Talk to your brain.It’s the boss!
“I am happy with my body” ,line would have worked ,if that was true.Not lying to myself is my first rule.
I have a treadmill which I use everyday to walk or run or stroll whatever as long as I get on it.It makes me happy.
That shot of adrenaline helped me explore how I can make the treadmill trips less boring.I have a few hacks which I will be sharing.
Dumbbells are my favourite .
Lifting weights are a lot of fun.
They give me a feeling of accomplishment .
I started my weight training journey , apprehensively not sure I could continue it.
But continue I did.
While doing the Blogchatter challenge # My Friend Alexa, I realized most people work best in a community. After reading this this Blogchatter challenge it became obvious to me that, when you’re having fun, with friends its easier to get difficult work done.
What’s more difficult than getting fitter?
Weight loss is not just about self image for me.It’s about finding my strongest self.I want my daughter to grow up strong.Strong mothers can help their children grow up stronger.
Not afraid of the world and its lurking dangers.
As protests for the wrongs suffered continues ,women need to grow stronger.
The stronger you become it will be more difficult to suppress your voice.
When you are the ideal weight ,your heart and your joints having less work to do .
There’s a reason weight and height charts are matched .
Life is about a healthy living and the best life possible.
I started lifting weight 6 months back with one set of dumbbells.
Now I have a few. Living in a little town in West Bengal and with my crazy schedule, going to the gym is not convenient .
So whatever I do have to be done at home.
When I started my fitness journey I had a few nagging pains ,left over from my post pregnancy days.
The stronger I became , the better I felt about myself.
The less pains and aches I had .
Body weight and mental health ,have a deep relationship .Mind and body ,live together in your consciousness.
When your mind decides it wants to get stronger you will get stronger.
With 71 days left before 2017 are you as strong as you would like to be?
Are you upto,taking part in a fitness challenge to become the strongest you?
If yes ,you need to do two little things.
