This post if for anyone starting a fitness journey. A fitness initiative to lose weight, get fit, or perhaps like me, climb back from a medical journey that required a lot of rest and restrictions while our bodies recovered and healed.
Today was my first day back to the gym after my surgery. I was greeted with huge hugs and big smiles from all of my fellow gym goers who had noted my absence. It felt so good to be back and I missed both them, and my workouts dearly. I remembered my own words of wisdom from this post (link in the comments) and started out small. The key being “started”.
I’m in the arena now. I have to fight harder than ever to get my body to do what I want it to do, but I’m in. All in. If you’re in the arena with me, arguing with your body about it’s ability to continue, call on your spirit. It knows what to do. And please know I’m with you. Rooting for you your entire journey. You’ve got this. love, b
