The Motivation of Results, no matter how small

So, I’ve been doing a core workout before my aerobics at the gym for the last couple of months. But really it’s only been a couple of times a week that I manage it because the mats are usually taken when I get there and I can’t do the routine without a nice thick mat.

My old boney self sticks out in the wrong places.

But this week I managed three sessions of core workout and then spent five hours digging compost, moving it in a wheelbarrow, and then digging up garden beds yesterday. Talk about a CORE workout.

Needless to say my abs were groaning, my back was protesting, and I wanted to just flop over and not move ever again.

But when I went to take a shower last night, I noticed my upper abdominals were more defined than I can remember them being. They still have a long way to go, but the fact that I noticed a difference sure makes all those hours of twisting around with a medicine ball seem worthwhile.

And it was such a needed to boost to my mentality to keep going on this journey.

I have dieted and exercised so many times over the last twenty years only to quit a couple of months in because of lack of results. It was all very disheartening time and time and time again.

So, seeing some results unexpectedly, really motivates me to keep moving on. Yahoo!!!
