Carlos’ 90 Day Challenge Week 4: What’s Happening to Me???

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 4 weeks since I started my first Blitz 90 Day Challenge. It’s only been 30 days but the changes that I’m starting to see are there! My pants are starting to fit better, I don’t feel as out of breath when I go up a flight of stairs, and for some reason I feel energized after a workout!

These changes come with working out. We all hear how working out gives you an extra burst of energy to always do a little more. But we always have a hard time getting that initial burst of energy to actually get us to the gym. I get it, I used to be like that. Now, I actually look forward to going to the gym, to workout and get my sweat on! I have only taken a few steps but they feel like leaps and bounds compared to where I was.  I feel happy again with who I am, how my clothes feel, and how I see my self in the mirror.

She’s been more than patient with me, explaining the exercises and making sure that I’m doing them the right way so I don’t hurt myself and I understand what muscles I’m working. I still have 2 more weeks before I take off on the most amazing road trip from Calgary to Mexicali so there is plenty of time to learn more exercises!  The focus this week is to workout harder than and stronger that I did last week.

PS – I’m not pushing myself up in the pictures… I’m pushing the floor down. 🙂
