Ok, this is my first blog on this site. I am not sure what I should be writing actually, but I will just keep typing thoughts until I run out I suppose. Finding a workout that actually works for me has been a problem. I live right on top of a green way trail. It is beautiful and relaxing, but yet I seem to find excuses to not go and take advantage of it. I have an eliptical in my living room, but yet it is closer to being a peice of artwork than a piece of motivation. Why do I waste the opportunities that surround me? I want to lose weight. Actually, I need to lose weight. I do not have any health related issues, but I know that I am meant to be somebody else. Not the person that I am right now. Not the person who feels insecure about her body image. Not the person who makes up excuses to avoid some social/intimate situations.
Well, an another opportunity has presented itself. A coworker has invited me to attend Boot Camp workout sessions. At first I attempted to make excuses for why I can't attend. After several excuses, I stopped myself and wondered why the heck I was lying not only to my coworker, but to myself. Why do I instantly run from weight loss challenges? I do not run from challenges at work. When it comes to my job, I excell at everything. So what is the deal? I want to lose weight, but yet I don't seem to try hard enough. Without any further thought, I went ahead and made a commitment. I committed to joining the Boot Camp workout. I hope that it really kicks my butt. I have no idea what it really is and for now, I don't care. I just hope that I have a trainer that could care less about any of my excuses.
This new challenge begins this coming Tuesday. I can do this.................I hope. I shall report back hopefully with positive results.
