I guess I am going to start journalling about my exercise and diet. I use the term diet loosely. Maybe slight dietary modification effort would be more accurate.
I HATE diets. I think they are un-natural, but since me being overweight is also un-natural, I need to figure this thing out.
For awhile I was eating pretty healthfully. I just wasn't exercising. Now, I have started exercising and want to eat anything and everything in sight. And a lot of it.
So, since I seem to work out most other areas of my life here, I figure I might as well throw this into the mix too.
I refuse to fixate on my weight or eating habits but I do want to get to where I am healthy and making healthy decisions.
Ok, bare-bones truth? I make really derogitory comments about myself and it needs to stop. Now. Before my daughter walks in talking about how unhappy she is with her body.
This week I have made a deal with myself to do my workout video every day for the five week days. Two of those days I have roped some friends into joining me so they won't be hard. It will be the others that I have to stick to. I did workout last night and slept well.
I have started with Biggest Loser's Cardio Max workout. I LOVE the show and Bob and Jillian so I thought it would make the workout more appealing. I do like it, but it is challenging. I will definately need the accountability to keep me at it.
I am going to get a new bathroom scale on Wednesday so I can track my progress better. I have taken my "before" shots. (Ugh!) Now I have written this down and posted it so that I can't pretend I didn't say it. My first month's goal is somewhere between 5-9 lbs. I know I can do that easily, but I just wanted a goal I could reach to boost my confidence. When I hit the first 10 lb goal I will be purchasing a Biggest Loser "Team Jillian' teeshirt as a reward!
