Development Tools Introduction to Git First Commits Viewing Changes to a File

I don't understand the practice part.

I've been using GitHub Desktop to track my project work for Treehouse since I started the FEWD course. This entire introduction to Git seems a bit redundant given that GitHub achieves the exact same thing. Anyway, for the practice part, I don't understand how to convert a previous workspace into a repository using Git, which I installed when I started this module. Can someone please explain it to me a little more?
