What I really want

Friday, July 08, 2011

Exercised in the morning today for thirty whole minutes! Iím pretty proud of myself. I marched in place and watched a lecture for 20 minutes, then I did Sparkpeople Bootcamp Day 1. I like how short those workouts are. Very well suited to my goals. I think I will do the seven day challenge, just to see which of those workouts I like best and want to include in my regular routine. I loved the kickboxing one so much Iím tempted to do it again tomorrow!

I think itís helpful to envision the real reason why Iím losing weight, which is to tone and tighten my bottom half. Thereís a culture of phrasing oneís goals in terms of pounds lost. I admit it - Iím part of that culture. Iíve said my goal for July is to lose 3-5 pounds, and I mean it. Reaching the teens has a special allure for me. However, what I really want is to lose an inch from my hips. I can imagine, realistically, what that slightly slimmed down version of myself will look like, and that motivates me a lot.
