Oh, Heather! I forgot to tell you, I started it yesterday, but start it today or tomorrow or whenever, and I'll tack on a few days to the end so we can support each other throughout! :)
I am extremely ADD at times, especially at the gym. If my head is not into it, I'll fight myself the whole time and it turns into a hard workout. I'm going to try to remedy this by changing up my workouts a lot. Tomorrow, I am going to try a shadowboxing class at 24 Hour Fitness. I may even attempt a spinning class, which the thought of just scares the crap out of me! Fitness HAS to be fun to become a habit though, so I'm looking forward to having a variety of great activities over the next month and seeing what I like best.
I think in my previous life (aka pre-op), I thought if you owned exercise videos, you could lose weight. I have sooo many, and half aren't even opened. Here's a small list of the variety of DVDs I have that I can use for exercise:
- Billy Blank's Boot Camp
- Turbo Jam (about 10 different ones)
- Hip Hop Abs
- The Firm (with body bar and step)
- Bosu Ball workouts
- Windsor Pilates
Ha! Maybe one of these days I'll actually do all of these as well. I have done the Turbo Jam and Hip Hop Abs.. and they're actually quite fun! Maybe I'll use these for the days like last night - where I have to get my workout in, but the lack of energy and gusto is just overwhelming. At least I forced myself to do something!
Work still sucks completely. It's a challenge making it through the day without crying. But, I'm trying to be positive, and fake it till I make it!
