New Attitude

Monday, August 03, 2009

It has been a while since I blogged and it is way overdue. I have learned that I am my own worst enemy in losing weight. I know what I should eat, I know that I have to exercise yet I am still obese. Why?... because I am lazy and I procrastinate. I put off working saying each day I will start tomorrow and yet I will end up going months without working out. When I do workout I notice that I eat healthier.

It took me a while but I think I have found the right exercise format for me. I bore very easily so I find dance aerobics works best for me. I need good music and fancy footwork in order to enjoy my workout. If I don't enjoy it I won't stick with it. Thank God for Netflix, where I can stream workout dvds online and also rent them. I have tons of workouts to mix and match so I don't get bored. I plan on joining a city run gym which only cost 75.00 for a year long membership. There I can get my weight lifting in as well as water aerobics for my joints.

As for my eating plan, I am not a veggie lover but plan on changing that. I need to incorporate more veggies into my meals. I eat enough fruit but lack in the veggies. I also need to cut back on the sugar, its my nemesis. I know I am a sugar junkie and if I can tackle the sugar then the rest will be a piece of cake.

I needed to get this out there and not keep it in my mind. I need to be held accountable and this way all of SP knows my plan and can call me on it.

Thanks for letting me rant!

    Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance...really does the body good and sooo much fun along with the water aerobics...Love the plan!

    As for adding vegetables, like everything else, start slow. Start with a salad and a low cal spicy (like you) dressing that will make your tongue dance while you eat, and work your way up from there. I haven't met a vegetable that I didn't like, however, the preparation makes a difference. I won't eat a vegetable cooked any old kind of way, so experiment and find the path that leads to where you want to go. You can do it!

    I bore easily too. I fell in LOVE with belly dancing. I just recently tried zumba but I fear I am not very coordinated. It was awkward.

    I think we all in some sense are all our worst enemy because If we weren't none of use would be here. So now that you faced that theirs a way to change it and your on the right track for that.

    It takes great courage to get real with yourself. I would love to know which dvd's you're using on Netflix. Keep on keeping on.
