Do you have the balls to take a new before pic or use one you already have? (If using one you already have- please note the weight on the pic)
The before pictures I have are pretty ballsy. Me belly is sticking out of pants that can't be zipped -- from the beginning of WTF? challenge. Ballsy would be posting it, I suppose rather than just keeping it on my external HDD.
Do you have any physical restrictions due to injuries, babies, vampirism, living dead syndrome, severe laziness, etc?
Injured Right arm/hand
Undiagnosed something that sucks the life outta me (living dead synd?)
Vampiristic preschooler who alternately declares she doesn't want to grow up and is a dog
Lower back/hip issues
Which muscle group do you want to start with? (I will definitely be paying attention to these- so be honest)
A) Upper Body (back/arms/shoulders/chest)
B) Core (abs/back)
C) Lower Body (legs/ass)
D) Total Body (all of above)
Everything hangs on the CORE, so let's keep that up, yet the workouts I want to focus and just downloaded are learning Tai Chi and that will be Legs with the Core, so I am not sure how that will play out.... Let's just say, D) Total Body, All of the Above then. Final answer.
Which of these things are you excelling in the LEAST and which do you think is your BEST area?
A) Cardio -- LEAST -- stamina is a big problem for me, as well as long recovery afterward
B) Strength Training/Toning/Scuplting
C) Weight Training (heavy weights)
D) Flexibility Training (stretching) --BEST my favorite and I have always been bendy
E) Agility Training
F) Speed Training
Do you have a goal outfit or an upcoming event that is motivating for you? No, not really. I still have goal outfits, but they've lost their mojo for me, dagnabbit.
Which kind of Motivation has seemed to work best for you in the past?
C) Your own progress THIS, MOST DEFINITELY THIS see also E)
D) Combining with other activities (such as gardening, volunteering, babysitting, etc)
E) Other PROGRESS IN NOT JUST SEEING NUMBERS, BUT IMPROVEMENT IN WHAT I CAN DO, BEING ABLE TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF MY HOUSE, DO THE JUGGLING ACT THAT IS THE JOB OF LIVING MY LIFE, THE FUNCTION
