Getting Started!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

I recently reached my highest weight ever, 280lbs, most of it from health and emotional issues. I realized this is rock bottom and it's time to climb my way out. In order to help reach my goals, I have decided to start changing my eating habits, and get in some form of exercise 5 days a week. It's so hot here in AZ during the summer, so I'm beginning with at home dvds and swimming. As for healthy eating, I am beginning by cutting out soda, drinking lots of water, and eating fresh produce every day.

It was a while ago that I decided I needed to change my life, but recently I was motivated by some ladies in a nail polish group that I'm in. I'm a huge polish addict! Last week I ordered a Zumba dvd set, and some real workout clothes that will fit right. I also ordered a Yoga for large women dvd and some yoga blocks, and some good protein weight loss powder. Also, I have some bollywood dance workout dvds that I'll add to the rotation. I made sure to get everything I needed so that I have zero excuses for not doing what I know I need to do.

The last of my stuff will arrive by Saturday, so I will begin on Mon. My goal is to do at least 30 mins a day, and work up from there. Fifteen of yoga, and fifteen of Zumba or bollywood. I'm a stay-at-home-wife so it's not exactly difficult to find the time. When I reach a point that I feel comfortable going to a gym, I will add in weight training to help tone and build muscle. I am going to use nail polish, makeup, piercings, and tattoos as goal rewards. I am so excited for Mon, the beginning of a new and improved life!
