way to go Biking! I just finished day one and I felt that way, too, like, this should be so much easier than how it feels, lol! And it's no fun working out for sure, but it's the feeling afterwards that makes you feel good about doing it. Push through the pain because you'll feel better when you're done! :D
Also, having a baby and trying to get up and go is hard, but work out videos are convenient and if you can get her to ride in a swing or keep herself entertained for even 10 minutes, even if it's watching you, take that opportunity!

Guess what y'all! GUESS WHAT???
I did it!
Day 2 DONE!!!
Now you have to understand, besides my inner devil finding out a million excuses not to workout , I planned for my baby to go to sleep at 11 am so I can start working out then...now she is 1 y.o and she ALWAYS sleeps exactly at 11 ( we are overseas now, Texas is still sleeping). So of course, the day I plan to exercise and I prepare my videos is the day she decides not to go to sleep, she cried when I put her in her crib, I left her 5 minutes ( usually she falls asleep) but she started screaming...
I cried, and cried, I felt horrible, I hated everything around me, why does this happen to ME?? This is so UNFAIR! All I want to do is workout!
I calmed myself down, I am not managing an inconvenience, it is my baby. Right now I need to put her to sleep, rock her, play with her, whatever it is she needs. If she doesn't go to sleep then I will push working out to later today. If she goes to sleep then I will workout even if dishes, laundry and cooking doesn't get done. I am #1. I need to be #1 so I can focus on my baby well, focus on myself and stop the train of guilt.
DID IT!!!
now I am gonna wash dishes and shower.



The only choice is whether I will take the next step or not, beyond that, it is not up to me right now.

JBOOKER4 and KannyKaren thanks for your reply!

I stayed up last night looking for 20 minutes + workout videos on youtube so I don't get bored with the couple I have ( guys feel free to message me if you want me to send you the links) I bookmarked 8 or 9 of them !
This morning however I woke up already thinking of excuses to skip working out, feeling stressed. Every cell of my body dreading when workout time will happen.

I looked for things to motivate me and found this quote

IF IT DOESN'T CHALLENGE YOU IT DOESN'T CHANGE YOU!

and

DISCIPLINE: IS DOING WHAT YOU KNOW NEEDS TO BE DONE EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IT



The only choice is whether I will take the next step or not, beyond that, it is not up to me right now.

1 st day DONE!!!
Did the 10 minute video but of course couldn't do the part with hands on the floor, I kept marching instead. I also did a 20 minute cardio video that I got years ago from weight watchers which I did all.

I cried and cried several times during the workout. I cried because I felt so embarrassed of myself, I thought " look at me, look at the heavy whale working out!" I was ALONE, but yet I felt embarrassed.
So I made myself an imaginary personal trainer, I imagined the guy from the biggest looser standing right next to me yelling in my ear "Come on! Are you gonna stay fat forever, come one do it, no slacking, do it, take the step, move move move!!!!" Haha my imagination worked and I was crying as my imaginary trainer was pushing and pushing.

Now off to shower!

We did it! Day 1 Week 1 is in the books. We went on a long bike ride and did the exercise after we got home and relaxed for a bit. Here's hoping we stick to it!
