Skipping steps

Thursday, June 16, 2016

I was watching American Ninja Warrior and saw commercials for the Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge and all I can think about is what it would be like to be on one of those teams. If I ever want to get to that level I have to work hard.

Now I just cant go right to the gym and do a lot of cardio and strength training. I would hurt myself or just crash. What I need to do is step one, change the way I eat.

The steps... MY steps:
1. change the way I eat
2. start small with exercise ; yoga, bike at gym, simple strength training
3. start monthly challenges
4. amp up my cardio and strength training
5. more challenges
... and we will see where it goes after that

I dont want to move on without completing or even starting the current step. Changing the way that I eat will be very hard. Its hard to think of what I should be eating while Im taking care of my grandma or watching my cousins girls. When I dont have the girls Im just worn out and I try to catch up on house and yard work. I need to set time aside and plan everything out, my meals and grocery list.

I need to go ahead and start yoga in the mornings. One of the girls I watch is 3 and she talks about exercise. I asked my cousin when she started to exercise and she just laughed and doesnt know where her daughter got it from. Im thinking one of the shows she watches on BabyFirst. So Im thinking of doing some yoga with her while her little sister is napping.

I need to start tonight with looking up recipes that I know my picky aunt and my grandma with dementia (odd behavior with food now) will eat.

Exercise is the easy part... Eating right is the true challenge
