If it weren't for all this extra weight...

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

I would probably be able to do the exercises in these videos..hahaha.
So I have had no Dr. PEPPER in a whole 4 + weeks. That is something I have never done. I used to drink 4-5 cans a day. I thought that I would lose weight just by that alone, but there is that whole... I wasn't eating right , by drinking a soda instead of eating....issue.
Eating has never been my problem, I could happily live without food if we didn't need it to survive. Don't get me wrong, I like a great tasting meal as well as anyone else..but food isn't a priority to me, I used to make a big deal if I didnt eat 3 squares a day...but now I have 5 kids..and I sometimes forget to eat or time just got away. Like today: I got up with the whole Metabolism afterburn effect goal in mind. Then I left for an appointment, did my errands...and before I knew it ..it was 5 something. I drank water, but after working out I generally am not hungry for hours. So I ate a piece of leftover chicken...and an hour later a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Then I ate dinner about an hour after that...

the title..
well I feel like a blind gorilla chasing a butterfly when doing the turbo jam or zumba dvd's. I've never been a dancer or coordinated..so there's that. But even with the 30 day shred...I feel underqualified to keep my core tight, my back straight, I feel like a frigin contortionist.. its all about form, so half the time I am more worried about my stance and body parts...then I am doing the moves. Maybe its just me..I am gonna add the couch 2 5k tomorrow. Running might give my lungs and bodyba wakeup call, but at least I know that its as simple as walking...sorta.

another thing...taking measurements properly? Anyone? Bueller.....Bueller? Waist..I think I understand. ..hips? I got 5 kids...my hips are somewhere under the fat..I'm not sure where they begin..or where to measure. Same with my arms

Anyhow. .gotta run!

    Start simple, track food each day, exercise with the kids. Just walking is good in the beginning, even 15 minutes. There are motivational articles for family fun exercises and they sound good. Envy you 5 children and I know that must keep you busy but you can incorporate exercise fun with them. Too many of our children are becoming couch potatoes and video game players and setting themselves up for heart trouble and other illnesses later on. Wishing you much success and happiness with your family! emoticon emoticon emoticon
