I am tired of looking the way I do and want to be able to fit into my old clothes again.
I am tired of buying bigger and bigger clothes.
I am tired of feeling crappy all the time.
In high school I was a three sport athlete. I never had to worry about what I was eating, my metabolism was lightning fast. I remained the same weight for about 10 years.
I coasted on that metabolism ride for many years even after high school when I wasn't involved in so many sports. Even after gaining 50+ pounds with my first child. I lost all that weight very quickly...without even working very hard at it. I became very spoiled and took my metabolic rate for granted.
But the metabolic ride has dumped me off in the deep end of cellulite. And I am tired of swimming in all that cellulite.
This summer I made the commitment to start working out. I'm not all nazi-exercise guru because I just don't have that kind of time or enough babysitters. Unfortunately there is not a gym here that has childcare.
I started going to the gym early in the mornings and doing some cardio and lifting. Since school has started I have joined the small gym in Lordsburg and have managed to exercise there several times.
I also have dusted off several of the workout DVD's that I have bought over the years and have managed to do them. I DVR'd Gilad from FiTV. My newest video is Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I am trying to make it varied so I don't get bored.
I have found a blog written by a personal trainer and have learned some great tips from her and even downloaded some of her workouts. I tried her lower-body one this afternoon...OUCH!!!
I know I am not doing as much as I should be...but I am proud to have finally gotten started.
