So i saw this on the front page of yahoo I'm kind of looking for more Ab and leg/butt workouts haha and i tried some of this video (Handstand was a bit scary) So just trying to add more to my workout routine I'm still tweaking it I'm thinking about getting a personal trainer I haven't really decided if i want to pay for it right now.
Bleh i got my hair chopped off yesturday i can't make it puffy like the lady who did my hair guess i need to invest in a nice comb and heavy duty hairspray haha! But i totaly felt like i should have gone out yesturday the way it was a fluffed up haha I'm gonna see if she can fix it up for me on Valentines Day. I attempted to fix it today but failed and threw on a little make up well enough jabber here it is un fixed lol. And excuse the mess in the background toys and my husband is currently trying to fix someone's computer.
Well I kept upsetting myself and decided to see for myself if i had made any progress and sure enough i did and let me tell you i felt horrible because of how bad my attitude has been lately i tend to be really hard on myself when i feel like I'm not trying hard enough and i begin to forget what is really important. I'm gonna keep doing what I am doing and i will be proud of myself what ever the outcome this the only body I get and only I can change it along with my attitude I am so lucky my husband has been so supportive and yes we have argued a lot lately but more or less because i did nothing but complain I kept telling myself I can't do this because i had twins but i have been doing it all along! No my stomach is not perfect but no one is perfect not even the pretty models on tv i bet they complain about something! And what i love about living a healthy life style is i feel like my skin has a healthy glow and i have so much more energy to play with the twins and i know they love that lol i even wrestle with my husband here and there which is a lot of fun haha. So i know i can do this the pictures have really said a lot so i will continue to do what i am doing and take another progress shot in a few months :)
Well i am feeling pretty good my sister sent me some pictures to my face book some of them were from a few months after i had the twins and a christmas pic in 2006 i was really shocked on how i could tell how much weight i had lost in the face it really amazed me. I haven't been able to go to the gym all week but i have been watching what i eat and i have been using my DvD's i think i really needed the week away no to mention how busy it has been around here i plan to make a trip back to the gym saturday but even though i haven't been all week i don't feel too guilty about it i got one of the biggest loser dvd's and I have been using it every morning and i love it i start huffing and puffing with in ten minutes of getting started but its a lot of fun (the cardio video) I try and stay on my toes more even if that means doing more chores around the house. I'm getting better about being kind to myself but I'm still learning but i am very much feeling proud of myself and my progress even more after seeing it on pictures
I know a lot of you have already seen my fare share of whining on the forums. When i was sitting down eating my lunch i just really started think about everything i have been complaining about. Yes i have twins and yes i have work that needs to be done to my tummy,thighs, and hips and i know my whining about it isn't going to make it go away so i decided to start over with a few new goals because i know the more i beat myself up the closer i will get to failure. So first thing is first. 1)I was sitting at 150 pounds last year i am now sitting at 124 2.) I went from a size 12 to a size 6 in jeans 3.) I can now jog when i am on the treadmill something i had a hard time with 4.) i can keep up with the twins better than i did before 5.) my husband is proud of me and my progress.
These are the five things that i will start looking at when i get upset I'm going to type them up in big bold letters and put them on every mirror in the house. I will only weigh my self on Monday every two weeks instead of every week. I will measure myself every three weeks. I will use my biggest loser DVD 3 times a week in the mornings and i will go to the gym 4 times a week in the after noon i will go walking/jogging outside on weekends and use my yoga dvd I will keep moving everyday of the week and on my rest day i will go walking/jogging i will not just sit around like i have been doing I will have 1 serving of Arizona green tea and i will drink my 8 cups of water everyday i will have a weight watchers sorbet ice cream bar on Fridays as a good job treat and when i have munchies i will eat fruit and on occasion trail mix but only 1 serving. i will have a girls day out with the twins every week and walk with them (they are in school for Autism i don't see them to later in the after noon :( )
When husband complements me i will not turn it around on myself. I will only allow myself to eat out once in a while but to eat something sensible i will not eat past 7. These are only a few things if you think its too much or maybe i should adjust something let me know I really need to be more positive I'm very hard on myself and i really need to stop. I have anxiety and depression and it really doesn't help not to mention the twins can always tell when i am down and i really need to be a better role model for them. So as the saying goes i guess my mood really does set the mood of the house. So i will do better!! I have to.
oh and i will not compare myself to others!!
