Ready for a Challenge
Friday, March 07, 2014
I'm trying (as per usual) to get back into the swing of things. I started tracking food again and am getting my motivation back. I feel like I put on an extra layer this long cold winter.
I'm going to try to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred for 30 days as a warm up to try Insanity. I need to get my fitness level back up after not doing much of anything lately.
I'm also walking home from work again after taking the bus since December. So, that's a 35-40 minute walk (up hill) plus a video. I have a heart rate monitor, so I can accurately get the video calorie count.
I did the Jillian No More Trouble Zones workout a few weeks ago after not doing it in a long time and I just about died after 15 minutes.
Committing to 30 days of Jillian also means that I'm going to have to get my butt out of bed in the morning... no more sleeping in until 7:15. I'm going to try to get up at 6 during the week....
I just feel like after I fell off the wagon, it just got worse and worse. Right now, I'm afraid to even step on the scale because I don't think I can deal with how much weight I've gained. I know my clothes are scary tight...
Along with getting back into working out and tracking my food, I'm going to try to post more. I definitely stick with things more if I post blog entries and comment on the message boards.
It's weird... I think because I know Spark is really the only thing that works for me, I tend to revolt against it. It's like hoping that not tracking or working out will magically result in weight loss without doing any of the work.
I don't do what I know works, because it's hard. And if it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be an issue. I know this, so I need to stop kidding myself.
