I’m Missing Exercise in Spokane!
Who, me? Can’t be. I’m the one who chooses the elevator instead of the stairs. I purchased an expensive eliptical four years ago and have used it only once! Was I lazy? Maybe. Sure I had periods where I worked out. But those periods never lasted very long. And I can’t say I ever really looked forward to working out. But that was then…..
And this is now….. I am actually missing exercise in Spokane! How can it be? Six weeks ago I started working with a personal trainer. It was hard work. Really hard work. But I stayed with it. I liked it. I looked forward to it. What’s up with that?
It didn’t take very long to actually feel the results. It wasn’t necessarily weight loss at first but a noticeable difference in my overall health. For over one year I had been experiencing some health problems, nothing serious, but definitely quality of life issues.
Annoying They Were…..
I had been having trouble falling asleep. I would lie in bed for over an hour tossing and turning. I’d also been taking a lot of Tums. After nearly every meal and even in the middle of the night! I was irregular. My back hurt. My knees hurt. I was taking the elevator instead of the stairs. I avoided walking down to my basement and not just because the eliptical was there. I was turning into an old lady before my time.
And Then a Miracle….
After less than two weeks of working out in Spokane I was falling asleep in minutes! Tums? Didn’t need them anymore! The irregular issue was gone too! My back and my knees were feeling better! I knew I’d have more energy after working out, but the fairly instant results to my other issues was staggering to me.
The “Old” Me Vs. the “New” Me
In my “former” life, I would do anything I could to avoid going to the gym. When the dogs needed a walk around the neighborhood, I even tried to get out of that. There was little exercise in Spokane for me.
Then a miracle occurred! After just one week of working with my trainer, I was hooked. I wouldn’t even consider skipping my workout. Unfortunately it all came to an abrupt halt three weeks ago when I had some minor surgery. My doctor wants me to wait a full month before resuming my Spokane exercise. I can feel the negative affects already. Tums are back in my life! It takes too long to fall asleep and my irregular problem has risen its ugly head. My back is acting up again.
While I was shocked that these annoying ailments stopped when I started with my personal trainer, I’m even more shocked that they came back as quickly as they did!
What has stuck with me during my workout downtime is that I am doing fairly well with my eating. Instead of a nice dose of carbs with my morning coffee, I am chosing fruit (well, most of the time). Though my husband isn’t thrilled, I’ve knocked off making desserts at night. I don’t miss them and truly don’t even consider it. Sure, I am far from perfect. I ate french toast with powdered sugar for dinner last night. But I no longer eat half a loaf of french bread just driving home from the store. That alone is progress! I guess it’s just a change in thinking. I’m not even aware of it, but it’s there.
I’m anxious to get back to exercise in Spokane. I will probably find myself putting even more into the workouts than before. That’s a good thing. Never would I have thought I would miss working out.
