I finally lit a fire under my derrier, and did something to get back on track.
- I joined a gym. I don’t like going to gyms, hanging around other dirty sweaty people, but I did it.
- I actually went to the gym. I’ve been 2x now, and I found a Yoga class that I’m in love with. The class is exactly what I need to reach my Learn Something New resolution to do the splits and back bend/spring.
- I will be going to the gym a few days a week with a girlfriend… I find that I’m much more likely to follow-thru when I know someone is waiting for me.
As I may have mentioned, I joined Weight Watchers with a friend. I am finally back to my original starting weight (I gained a few pounds in Paris, and now that is gone – took two weeks, but its gone!). This has motivated me to keep going, along with my mom’s experience thus far.
My mom you ask? Yes, dear mom is just gorgeous. I get my body from my mom, eyes from my dad. We carry our weight in the middle (arms, checst, and stomach). Anyway, I was talking with my mom – she has lost 12 pounds in 2010. She did this just by eating less – she cuts her meals in half and puts it away. If she still feels hungry, she drinks a glass of milk. If in 30 minutes she is still hungry, she will have a small snack (celery and peanut butter, carrots, apples & cheese, etc.). She is going to incorporate exercise into her routine so she can firm up. But we just picked a weekend in September to unveil our “beach bodies”.
If I stick to my plan, I can lose my extra weight by my birthday, which is in 2 months. There is no reason why I cannot do this IF I stay focused. And I’ve surrounded myself with friends who want to help.
In summary, I’m back on track a bit.
