30 Minutes A Day...

Treat Yourself

I love working out!!! I have been out of practice and out of sorts for longer than I care to admit. I’ve done little things here and there but nothing close to the workout regimens of old…

I had a car accident in “2007” I walked away with little to no injuries; or so I thought. A year after my car accident I started experiencing shoulder and neck pain on my right side. Multiple Dr. appointments later I learned that I have a degenerative condition in my neck and most likely my spine. I’m told that the car accident irritated my situation and because of my healthy lifestyle; had I never been involved in a car accident I would have never known.

DEGENERATIVE: Adjective of a disease or symptom characterized by progressive, often irreversible deterioration, and loss of function in the organs or tissues.

Currently: Living my life like it’s GOLDEN!!! I have unconsciously been wallowing in pity. I have had a few of life’s troubles bother me and knock me off of my GAME. Needless to say; I’ve been distracted!!! But I made a conscious choice to interrupt all distractions. I decided to focus on me and I chose a word to use as a focal point to each day. For this year, 2019 the word that I chose to focus on is INTENTIONAL!!!

INTENTIONAL: Adjective done on purpose; deliberate.

Present Day: I am purposely choosing me. I have managed to find a workout regimen that I love and God Himself directed me to a specific kickboxing gym that is just right for my situation. It takes 30 minutes a session to whip my ARSS!!! LOL!!! I drip with SWEAT. I PANT for air. I LIFT with caution and PUNCH and KICK with purpose, clarity and TECHNIQUE! I AM IN-LOVE!!! LOL!!! This is my PLACE. LOL, LOL, LOL!!! And Steven and Mark are my PEOPLE!!! LOL, LOL!!! I feel alive! I look forward to going to 9Round gym every morning. I take Saturdays and Sundays off. I have lost weight and still losing, but most importantly I feel strong in my body and my joints ache less and less each consistent day that I INTENTIONALLY choose me.

1st I wrap my hands for protection, and then I stretch.
