Bodybugg...I've got some questions about it

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Today I ordered a bodybugg online. I have a friend who is very fit and has used one (many) several times. She says that she was the most fit while using her bodybugg. I've been thinking about getting one for a while now and my friends words of wisdom about hers pushed me over the edge and I finally bought one. I'm really hoping that by spending over $100 on it that it will push me to workout even more regularly and to watch what I eat. I'm super excited about getting started with it. I hope it doesn't take too long for me to get it.

I've read some mixed reviews about the bodybugg. Does anyone know anything about it? Have you used one? Did you like it? Did it help you stay on track with your workout? Any tips for using mine?

Any help or tips would be highly appreciated. Thanks everyone


It's a love hate thing

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I finally got back into the gym today after being sick for a week. I have to admit, exercise and I have a love hate relationship. Sometimes I really have to work up enough motivation to get up and workout. Sometimes I dread doing it. But after every workout I feel great. I'm always so happy that I made it to the gym and I just feel good all around. Now that I'm feeling better I need to get another streak going with my workouts. I've got high hope for the rest of the week.


Sick, sick, sick

Thursday, January 10, 2013

After spending 3.5 days sick, I'm finally starting to feel better. I hate being sick and this one was a doosey, totally stuck in bed for 2 days.

Of course I had to get sick after a great 5 day streak of workouts. But I'm not going to let that get me down. I'm going to take it easy for a few more days then hopefully get back to my workout by Monday.

Back to bed I go.


Feeling great already

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I'm feeling great already! I've revamped my Spark Page, weighed myself for the beginning of this new me process, made healthier choices in my food today and spent 50 minutes in the gym today.

I know I'm going to have slip ups and bad days and days where I just don't have it in me to go to the gym and workout but I feel like I'm off to a great start and for once I'm actually excited about losing weight and changing my life.

I'm ready for a new beginning and a new me

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I'm back...again...

It's a new year which means it's time for another new years resolution, except, I once again have the same resolution that I have had for the last 5 years, to lose weight. I was recently told, "if you're serious about losing weight do it now because it's even harder once you turn 30". I'll be 30 in 2.5 years, I don't want to be fighting with my weight when I turn 30. I'd rather be thinking about my career, which is well on it's way and possibily looking to get into a realationship again and maybe start a family. I've struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember and I don't want spend the next 10 years obsessing over my weight.

I need to be realistic about it this time. As much as I wish I could wake up tomorrow and be 100lbs lighter, I know it's not going to happen. I also need to not be so disappointed in myself when I don't have it in me to workout everyday or when I have a bad day and just want to sit on the couch, watch tv and veg out. I know myself and I know I will have plenty of days like that.

This year will be about setting realistic goals for myself. Making healthier food choices. Getting portion sizes under control. And most importantly, just being a happier healthy me.

Here's to a new year and a new me.

    Losing weight is not about being skinny or always seeing the numbers go down. It is about being a winner and choosing to be healthy no matter what . It is like deciding to still play your best in a game even though you know you are going to lose. I remember watching ice skating and seeing an ice skater fall down. They don't get up and walk off the ice. They get back up and skate, even though they know they might have cost themselves the medal. And we applaud them. That is because at the end of the day we know that this is more than a medal. It is about life, a decision, our character, and the person we want to remember ourselves as no matter if we crossed the finish line or not. YOU CAN DO IT!! :0)

    Try taking it 5 pounds at a time. I bought myself some cheap beads for my bracelet and add a bead for each 5 pounds lost. It is a visual cue that I can see all day long to remind me of the progress I have made and inspires me to keep reaching. You can even do this with beans, marbles, shells, etc. (one for each pound) and place them in a pretty glass.

You are SMART to take charge of this now while you are young. You have so much living to do and it is more fun when you can move easilty and feel great. emoticon
