Discouragement Not An Option
I did my workout today. I felt like crying but Carson talked me up. I started out with 5 minutes on the elliptical machine and I could feel the burn throughout my entire body. So I stopped at 5 minutes and went back to the stationary bike and I was planning on doing 10 minutes so I could keep my 15 minute workout routine. I didn't make the 10 minutes on the bike. I felt so discouraged. I felt like I had given up. But my legs just wouldn't go anymore. I can barely walk up the stairs as it is right now. Carson talked to me for a while and helped me understand that the elliptical is a much harder machine to workout on than the stationary bike is. Plus I'm 308 lbs of bad body weighing down on my legs. He helped me understand that at least I still went out and did my workout. Even though it was only 10 minutes instead of 15 minutes. It's still hard not to feel down about it but I've decided that discouragement is just not an option right now. I have gone from no movement to A LOT of movement in just a few days. I've been watching what I'm eating and I haven't given up yet. I will not give up!
