Today I decided to fore go the gym and do my p90X at home. All I can say is WOW!! I couldn't even get through 1/4 of the tape. Well I probably could have but when you work out alone that is one of the drawbacks. You don't have anyone there to motivate you and push you to do just one more rep or just 5 more minutes of cardio. I'll work on that though. I tried out the pylometrics and that little 8 minutes or so (more or less ) really kicked my ass Mind you, the entire tape is about 50 or 60 minutes long so I have more than a way to go until I'm up to par with that one . I did a little bit of back and biceps as well but because I don't have a pullup bar at home, I felt like I wasn't accomplishing much so I stopped. By this time I was pouring down with sweat anyway. I just need to stick with it and get my diet in check and I will be good to go.

On a much somber note, I managed to take some before photos and lets just say I want to cry. I'm not sure if I will even post them here because they look a H.A.M. They truly do.

Another start day, yet again

Today will begin day one of my fitness quest. I know, I know, yet again!. I am just getting over a case of strep throat complete with the rash of scarlet fever and all. I don't really feel like getting back on the workout wagon but my body tells me different. I just want to be thin again and apparently since there is no magic weight loss pill and surgery is unaffordable and unattainable at this time, I guess I just need to get on it and do it the old fashioned way. Diet and exercise. I have until about the first week in August to get down to about 160 lbs. (which would equal about a 50 lb weight loss for me) I am definitely going to do it this time because I am sick and tired of being fat. yes I said it, FAT! I will take my beginning measurements and my starting weight as well as a few pictures and then I plan to do my hip hop abs tape and see how I feel. I know I will definitely need to hit the gym again in order to get an effective cardio workout but I'm not sure if I will be heading there this week. Anyway, that's the plan. I'll be back a little later with goals and the like. Wish me well!!
