Now is the Time, Today is the DAY

Saturday, March 02, 2013

I need to get serious about my health. I am starting to feel the aches and pains of a VERY demanding job (therapeutic horseback riding instructor) and I believe that before I quit, I need to make the necessary changes to try and drop the extra weight I am carrying. Quite honestly, I need to lose about 40 pounds in total. I hope that by losing that first ten I will feel a difference in my body. Today it's not about physical beauty, it's about physical functioning. So I am going to give the month of March a whirl. Exercise 5 times a week and log EVERYTHING I eat and then see where I am on April 1st, So today it begins. It's Saturday morning and nothing but sheer laziness is in my way. So up and at em. I am leaving this entry to begin my weekend with a 30 minute home workout! emoticon

    My job is very labor intensive BUT it makes me too tired to pursue cardio exercise. I need to quit using that excuse and get to it! Lol. Plus, I just am not mindful of what I eat. I think if I can get the food intake under control the rest will fall into place....I know this works. My hubby lost 40 pounds a few years back doing spark. I am highly motivated now. Thanks for the encouragement!

    your job is so interesting and I am sure fulfilling.
It seems working with horses would provide you plenty of opportunity to be active.
Best wishes on your goals for March. emoticon

    You can do this and sparkpeople is so awesome because it gives you the tools you need to be successful. I exercise 5-6 times a week and always keep track of my food. Keeping track of your food daily will help you a lot. Good luck to you and I hope that you reach your goals this month! emoticon
