I have been absent from SP for some time. I had become complacent because I was maintaining and not making any progress. I thought after loosing 120 lbs i could just drift along. Which I did for awhile... Then of course Halloween
Thanksgiving...you get the picture. By the time New Year's
rolled around I had gained a good 11 pounds and my motivation was out the window. I tried a couple of times this month to get started but I always let food win.
I took a big step, enrolled in the "Just 10" program at work. It is a program that over 10 weeks is designed to drop 10% of your body weight. I think it should be subtitled the "get real program". We have a personal coach/trainer that we meet weekly with. During these sessions, the program is revealed, followed by exercise. I must say I thought I was active but guess what, NOT EVEN CLOSE! I'm not discouraged, I can only get better. I also have to deal with past surgery/injuries so some modification is in order. Planks are hard to do with my right foot after my surgery and squats hurt my knees.
Homework consists of walking 30 minutes a day, every day and strength exercises are emailed to us.
Wah,wah for me, right? You are thinking get over it Anne. Yep, I am. I am already 5 lbs down since starting. I also think shaking things up with eating and exercise has jumped started my body. I feel like my motivation is back.
I look forward to moving toward my goals and looking good for my daughter's wedding in June.
One other thing, I gave my coach my password so she can monitor me.
so no trainer bashing here!!! Hi Randi!!!!
Have a pleasant weekend my fellow Sparkers!!!
