Awakening

I have no excuse for the past year. I have worked off and on at a gym plan. I am not losing weight. Although I have been pretty good with the gym, I have not been diligent at all with what I am putting in to my body. I need to do better. I will do better!

So, Starting afresh, I claim that failure is not falling, it is staying down after we fall. In all humility, I am attempting again the task I have found so overwhelming in the past.

Goals will be

-2 lbs a week

-8 lbs a month

This means that it will take me about a year to get to where I am wanting to be.

-end goal= 135 lbs

-starting weight=255 lbs

Small rewards will be gotten for each small goal achieved.

Rewards cannot consist of food.

After 1 day following program= taking time for myself

After 1 week with completed goal= go out somewhere fun (if it has food, still must stay healthy)

After 1 month with completed goal= allowed to get myself a piece of jewelry, or piece of clothing

After each 20 lbs lost= romal does something special for me (surprise and unknown)

Goal of balancing toning and strength training exercises with cardio workouts. Cardio will be done five times a week. Strength training also five times, but I will switch back and forth between upper body and lower body.  In the evenings, I want to focus on stretching and toning muscles doing things such as Pilates.

I will be working out with my mom and possibly my dad. When my hubby is not working he will be coming with me to the gym as well.

Cardio does not have to be at the gym. As much as possible I want to do things such as kayaking, hiking, etc to do freestyle workouts. fun fun fun, but if I can’t get one in during the day, I have to go to the gym. 🙂 No excuses.

If I must miss out on life for a while, that is just going to have to be the way it is so that I can focus on what needs to be done, and lose this weight and get fit. (and so that my back gets better.)
