Motivation...


Thursday, April 14, 2011

Well I have worked out on the elliptical every morning for 30 minutes this week. I feel amazing. I am not sure what to expect with this. I don't know how to calculate calories burned but it shows what it thinks I burn...then I put it (time on the elliptical) in here and its almost doubled calories burned. IDK all I know is I am sweatn like a whore in church. :D I love the way i am feeling. My legs look amazing I must say. And its even toning my arms some. I am gonna start incorporating strength training at some point but I just can't right now. No excuses....its just not happening. I am trying to watch what I eat and make healthy choices and drink my water. I am hoping this motivation stays for a long long time as I have lots of weight to lose. But I am happy about the minor changes I am seeing already.

I wish I could get my Hubby to take his health serious but he seems to just not care. I just work out every morning and he sees me before he leaves for work and I am hoping he will see how much better I am feeling and join my club. I am trying to be a better role model for my kids (15 yr old daughter, 5 and 4 yr old sons). I have noticed if I buy little debbies and fruit the little debbies are eaten first. SO I buy fruit and display it where everyone can see it and get to it and guess what? It gets eaten :D I add healthy things to each meal - lower calorie things, whole wheat, the kids drink diet soda or water now. Very little juice.

I want my whole family to be healthy!!!!

Anyway thanks for reading.....

    Good job. I must say I tried an elliptical once - for 5 minutes and it was a LOOOONG 5 minutes. I felt like a clutz on it. I will stick with biking and walking.

I too am seeing my kids make better choices. I have a 13 year old daughter active in sports. I pack her lunch for school for 1 week and then make her pack it for a week to see if she makes good choices.

    You did an amazing job and you should be proud of it. Don't worry what you hubby does at this moment, you should take care of yourself first, and you'll see everything else will follow. Again, great job!
