This blog is going to be my motivation...I will have it in writing (computer writing)...what I'd like to call proof!
Although, I need YOUR help! YES....YOU...the one sitting in your comfy computer chair, reading this blog, and wondering to yourself..."what is this crazy girl needing my help for?"
Here's a little history for thought.
I eat well...by well I mean nutritious. Lots of fruits and veggies, very little meat (no beef, no pork, little chicken) lots of fish. Dairy...colors...textures...ta
Variety is the key. I also track honestly...if I eat that ohhh so yummy Lindt Lindor white chocolate truffle...I track it (even if it was 10 of them, which never happens, so don't get scared!).
I generally do okay on drinking the daily requirements of H2O...(could do better, but we all could).
I lack a little in the sleep department due to my job (graveyard shift), but it's going to be better soon (optimism never fails me).
Here's the kicker...EXERCISE! what do we consider exercise?
In my world it's... running around my college campus going from class to class (not the type of running where you move fast, just the type where you feel like a chicken with your head cut off). Oh...and there's the walking the dogs...they walk me, nuff said! Let's not forget cleaning the house...does that actually count???, because I do ALOT of this. And then there's the "you're a mother with a tween...who has a life"...PLEASE, don't get me wrong, I love to do all these things, but it's way hard to find time to fit in ME time to exercise...my daughter is a gymnast so yes we do parent/kid days at gymnastics and we do lots of core and strength stuff at home, but I need more.
Here's where YOU come in! I challenge YOU to challenge me, push and motivate me, to do 1 hour of "me exercise" every day in the month of February...yes, a whole 29 days.
I need ideas of new things to try...I'm open to ANYTHING. What works for you?
DVD's, strength training ideas, cardio, running, yoga, tai chi, tae bo, circuit training, pylometrics. pilates, zumba???? I want a new idea every day...not trying to be lazy, but when you have someone challenging you...it drives you harder!
