I don’t often diet, well I usually don’t on Wednesdays through Sundays. Because on Mondays I always start a new one 🙂 By Tuesday I am sick of it and by Wednesday I quit. But in the past few months I have managed to loose some of the “baby weight” I have been carrying around. How long am I allowed to call it baby weight? But I still have a good 10 more pounds to go. Now I know it sounds stupid and its what people say who are not really trying, but I really just want to be healthy. I know a lot of really skinny people who are not healthy or in shape.
Call me the excuse master, I can make one up on the spot. Sometimes they are valid, new baby, no sleep, another case of mastitis… etc. Sometimes it is just life, I am never going to get enough sleep or have the perfect weather conditions (Houston humidity!) or have enough money to buy the perfect gym membership or the personal trainer. But there are so many things that I can do everyday on my own, IF I DECIDE TO DO THEM! So I am deciding, right now to be healthier, and I want you to hold me accountable!
This means that I have to make it a priority to make time for myself to exercise. I have to go to bed earlier, and get off the computer sooner! No excuses. I have a child in early morning football, after school we have ballet, softball and baseball, homework, tap and tumbling and I work on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I am telling you this because I am going to say I am too busy. But really, I can do it and I need to.
Now, I am most motivated by REAL people! Not fitness experts or professional athletes. But by all you Moms who bust your butt to make it work or just do the best you can. Does anyone want to do this with me? You don’t have to do the running program, the only requirement is that you are getting healthier. Lets all motivate each other. Leave a comment and tell us what you have done in the past to make your body BETTER. In fact, I think we should have our own little club, complete with handshake and tattoos!
Are you in?? What can you do in 12 weeks to make yourself healthier? I propose a little giveaway! At the end of twelve weeks I will give away a new pair of workout shoes, an ipod shuffle, and a gift certificate (high dollar) to purchase workout clothes! This is what you need to do. Blog about what you are doing every week or leave me a comment (if you don’t have a blog) on Friday’s when I post the reminder. We can all help and motivate each other, real Women and real life situations!
Good luck, I am excited!
