I need to make a committment. I need some pressure, or nothing happens. So I did something that will either be great or make me feel really stupid.
I bought Jillian Michael's Body Revolution.
However, 1st I had a discussion with my husbnd about it. It's not cheap, so it's not something I would just buy without discussing it first. And we have had previous conversations about unused fitness products that I have bought in the past : /. I was pretty sure he was going to laugh at me, and tell me it was ridiculous.... but he didn't.
He let me explain what it was, and why I thought it would be good for me, and then he said that if I really thought it would help and if I make a committment to actually doing it, then he didn't have a problem with me buying it. What a good husband I have :)
And he asked me what his role could be in helping me follow through with my committment (by past experience, I tend to get kind of pissed if he points out when I'm not eating right, etc- as he is skinny and is not trying to lose weight)- and I told him he could ask about my progress. So I have real live accountability now too- THEREFORE, my only option is to follow through and for this to turn out great... there is no option of feeling stupid, because not doing this is no longer an option.
Anywhoo, assuming I don't get called into work (as I'm on back-up call through this weekend *knocking on wood*), I have the weekend and Monday off. Tuesday I start working nights (7p-8a). In the meantime, one of my goals is to stock up on some healthy home-cooked meals to feed me through rest of the week. One exciting new addition to my kitchen is a slow-cooker (a recent bday gift), so I'm learning what I can do with that.
