Well here we are on a Monday and I have to confess that I have yet again failed. This time it wasn’t blogging I failed at (I’ve been doing decently well at posting on the regular). I failed in my 30 day squat and plank challenges. Cue depressing violin music…
So here’s the deal. Call it what you will, but I’m lazy. I haven’t been feeling well for several months and by the time I get home from work, I just don’t want to so much of anything other than lay down and sleep. And if the husband is home, I want to spend time with him even if that means laying in bed all day!
But I’m at a point in my life where the weight isn’t going to go away unless I do something about it. When I was younger all I had to do was look at a shirt in the perfect size and my body would burn off the extra few pounds to fit into it. Now if I see a shirt I like, I buy the size bigger than I would like just so I know it will fit for a while.
So from here out I am going to do my best to end the laziness. On my breaks at work I have been walking a mile at a time around the lake. So that puts me at about 2 miles a day – 10 miles per week. That’s a good start. And I plan on doing some sort of exercising every day even if it is just a few crunches or lunches while dinner is cooking. I know that if I can get into the groove that I will feel so much better and healthier. It’s just getting myself motivated to make the change.
So I challenge you, my readers, to call me out from time to time and see if I am keeping good on my end of the deal. I don’t want to be writing that I have failed you yet again in another couple of months. I want to be able to say, “I’m working out everyday and I feel physically and mentally healthy!”
I’m not making this a resolution, because we all know those are destined for failure. I’m making an honest change in my life to be healthy. I’m going to take it one step at a time, one day at a time. And on my 30th birthday, I want to be slipping into a pair of jeans I bought 3 years ago that I have never been able to fit into and say to you, “I made it!”
Do you have any fitness goals or lifestyle changes this year? Tell me about it below so I can keep you motivated too!
