could use some help

Monday, March 18, 2013

It's been hard to stay motivated. I work 12 hour shifts and the shift I'm on likes to order out 2 everyday. I take my lunch most days and I'll let them know so they know. When I get home I'm so tired I don't want to workout. My dad just died and I can't help but think if I don't get this weight off I'm going to have health problems too that will cause an early death. I don't want that. I want a long life with my family. I have a treadmill and my mom just gave me 10 minute trainer with Tony Horton. My h husband isn't good about helping me stay motivated. He tells me I'm fine the way I am. 235 pounds is NOT fine! My mom's my best motivater but she's so busy and in another time zone so it's hard to talk to each other as much as we'd like. My problem is I get bored after awhile. Even when I change it up. I tried the online buddy thing before but I don't get on enough for it to help much. I really need to get my butt moving. My weight is starting to bother my knees and my back. I have the 10 minute trainer now so I can't say I don't have time, every one can make time for 10 minutes. The workout plan has you do 3 workouts you can brake up or just do the top one.

    I saw the commercial for 10 minute trainer, looks like a good program! My wife started out doing this session from Prevention magazine.


    Progressed to using Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30.

    You can do it, even with your very challenging schedule, and if you have a family history, you know why you should.

    Your goals are worthwhile, pursue them! emoticon emoticon

    Hang in there!!! I get bored sometimes and when I do, I sit down and think about all the ways the extra weight is lousing up my life. I got tired of going out to eat and having to see if they had tables instead of booths because I couldn't fit comfortably in a booth. The list goes on and on! I don't want to be there anymore, so I give myself a mental kick and keep on going. You can too.
