I didn't do so well with Bootcamp last week.
I don't have any valid excuses. (I can always come up with excuses!)
I think I let myself get a little intimidated by the fact that I can't do many of the exercises shown in the videos. Why can't there be videos depicting the reality of many Sparkers? Even writing about this topic is nothing new.....you've heard it from many of us.
Unfortunately, it goes back to so many of our perceived roadblocks to getting healthy. You know the ones.....if I could squats, I could lose weight.........if I could afford fresh fruits and veggies, I could lose weight, if only my back....feet....didn't hurt.....you get the picture.
And it isn't like I don't know that I can modify these exercises or do something else entirely. I even chose to walk on my treadmill one day last week. I can't seem to keep exercise as a priority. I get up in the morning, have a 1/2 hour commute, work 9 hours, 1/2 hour commute, then it is time to make dinner when I get home. After that I am exhausted. Sounds like another excuse, huh?
This is the thing I need to work on.....making exercise important, fun and something I want to do consistently. I need a plan.........and I will make one today!!!
I just have to remind myself.....Why is this soooo important? I spent some time with Clinton and Kim Friday night and we were looking at Clinton's pictures growing up and I was surprised just how long I have been overweight. Makes me sick to think about it actually. I don't want that anymore.
I need to get my body to want what my mind wants. Hmmm..........
