Thursday night, I punished myself. I worked out hard before bed after all day long procrastinating. Not going to happen. I want this change. My motivation is going to kick the crud out of this unhealthy body if it's the last thing I do! Looking to even joining up with a friend's fitness group this Saturday! She mentioned there's going to be a nutritionist and a personal trainer. I've been hearing her talk about the group for about 2 months now. I think it's time I stop dragging my feet. It's support, more motivation and accountability.
Weight: ERROR lbs Today (That's right. Error. No matter what I do or where I put it, the scale seems to have kicked the bucket)
Measurements: 14.25" neck, 37.5" waist, 45.5" hips
Highest weigh-in to date: 243.5 lbs on 3/11/2008 (The day I went in to labor with Aiden)
Weight goal: 134 lbs (Last seen in High School when I was running and watching what I ate)
- Blogilates! I've moved myself up to some of her regular videos. I really have loved the burn from each one so far but here's just a few I've been doing in case you want to join in with me! POP Pilates: Labor Day Workout, Abs All Night Challenge and POP Pilates: Saddlebag Shaver OH! And the arm challenge...done that one a bunch and all I can say is OW!!!
- I also watched her joint video with Davey Wavey Fitness. He talked about a 80/20 food rule. 80% of the time eat the healthy foods and 20% of the time indulge a little. You need a balance in order to make it work. Finally! Someone talking my language! I need that little bit every now and then. It keeps me going on changing this from a diet to a lifestyle change.
- Too much on her plate's Step 4: inner critic & Step 5: support. I think I have been doing pretty well with this. I actually defeated my inner critic to force myself into a late night workout. That bossy voice was trying to tell me that it was too late and I missed my chance. No! I call the rules!
