I have returned

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

I have been rather discouraged with my weight and life in general. I thought I would pop back in here today to get going again. I knew I hadn't done well in the past few months but was appauled to see an 11 pound gain and my measurements increasing. I can't continue to live life this way. Something needs to change and it is ME. I so wish I had a walking buddy in this little hodunk town but until then I guess I just need to motivate myself. If anyone has any FREE exercise ideas I would love the comments. I just can't afford the gym even if I wish I could.

    Hmmmm. I know it's HARD to do this on your own, but remember who you're doing it FOR - YOU! You are worth putting forth that effort for. Way more than for a friend who'd keep you company when it was convenient. :)

If you enjoy workout videos, try YouTube. People have put ALL sorts of things on there - I've found Billy Blanks' kickboxing and abs workouts on there (GREAT workouts!), and also Jillian Michaels' 30-day Shred (all 3 levels) and her new one: Burn Fat, Boost Metabolism.

I also LOVE to dance, so I crank up some tunes on YouTube and boogie away a half hour quite easily!

You CAN do this. Come chat on your SparkTeams, join some teams that are more challenge-oriented (for the community aspect and the accountability), and just believe that you WILL succeed. Because you WILL. As long as you keep working at it!

One team I've heard really good things about is the "Done Girl" team - very challenge-oriented, really motivating, from the sounds of it. And people get results. There are also teams dedicated to walking, biking, swimming, dancing, whatever floats your boat! :) Find the one that "clicks" for you, get active in the team and watch those pounds and inches melt away - I know that once you find a niche that you enjoy, you'll enjoy the process even more!

Cheers,
Maya
