The darn lightbulb finally flickered on!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

My last blog post was nearly five months ago and six weeks ago I had the final "ah-ha" I needed. After jumping from one thing to another in search of the 'workout I will love', I realized something that has changed everything. It isn't that I hate running, or swimming, or workout DVDs, or dancing. Nope. I hate physical exertion. Period. Unless they make an effective workout where you don't have to actually work, I will never find something that I love.

Now, I know that might sound depressing and perhaps like I am giving up, but it is actually the contrary. I found it freeing. I didn't HAVE to like working out, I just needed to find something that works and that I can fit into my day easily. Since that, I completed 6 weeks of 30DS and am starting Ripped in 30 tomorrow.

Yay me!

Someday...

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I would like to say that someday I will be more consistent with updates, but someday never seems to get here. Oh well.

Something has changed recently, or rather, is changing. I am in the middle of a lightbulb moment. A long, drawn out lightbulb moment. Everything is coming together, almost naturally. I am not diving headlong into something new, and I am forgiving myself for my mistakes ( gasp! ) which has never happened before. I don't know how this came about, but I am liking the changes and will do everything in my power to keep this ball rolling. It feels different this time, I hope that's a good sign.

  


Progress....just a little...

Thursday, March 10, 2011

So I started T.O.P.S. (take off pounds sensibly) a few weeks ago and really like the support they offer. If you are one of those people that like having someone to be accountable to (think WW) but hate hefty price tags, TOPS might be for you. It has an annual fee of $26 and a monthly fee of around $5. Completely do-able. I know some people feel that they can be accountable to SP or to a friend or family member, but I personally need someone, in the flesh, that I don't know to weigh me in. Don't know why, it just helps motivate me.

Just thought I would check in, feeling icky, gonna lay down a little before I try and get a workout in...

  


It is so easy to get off track...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

So I have been MIA for awhile now and have little to report. My workouts fell by the wayside. Blah! But my eating has been better. Still not perfect and not sure if I am ready to start tracking yet. I am happy to report no weight gain. Maintaining isn't as good as losing, but it is better than gaining.

My husband and I sat down and decided that we needed some healthy family activity and decided on taking family walks every evening. I am really excited to go tonight! Hopefully, this will help me feel more motivated to get back I into a steady workout routine.

New year

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

So, I have discovered something. No matter how much you say that you are going to do such and such for your fitness routine, you will quit if you don't find something you love. I was doing p90 and there was no love at all. I made it a month before a started skipping and it was all down hill from there. After I "failed" with working out, my old eating habits crept back in and the few lbs I lost before I quit crept back on. So, here I am again. I was reluctant to come back on, thought of making a new account so ppl wouldn't know I was a "quitter" but after I thought about it, I realized that I wasn't a "quitter", I was just in the wrong mind set. When my chosen workout routine didn't work for me, what I should have done was try another, not throw in the towel and hang my head.

That all being said, I am here again with a weekly blogging goal and a workout I LOVE. Seriously, I started the 30 Day Shred and even though I am sore and tired, I am excited to workout. As for eating, I have kicked my soda habit and have been keeping junk out of the house. I am starting to track my food intake and even though i haven't gotten everything down everyday, I am getting there. I have realized that it isn't about perfection, it is about commitment and forgiving yourself for your mistakes so that you can move past them.
