It's Been a Few Days

Although it has been a few days since I posted, I am proud to say that it hasn't been a few days since I've worked out.  I worked out everyday this week except for Friday well... because I just didn't feel like it.  I've heard that it takes a least 2 weeks for things to become a habit and I have been working out for at least that long and I still get that "I don't want to work out today" feeling.   Case in point, yesterday I was going to do p90x leg day.  I got up,  popped in the video, started doing the initial stretching exercises, logged into WOWY and then my body just refused to co-operate.  I just kept thinking about how I didn't want to do squats, lunges and all the other exercises. I also kept thinking that  the workout lasted 60 minutes and I ended up just turning the video off, canceling my workout on WOWY and doing nothing.  I guess it be's like that sometimes but I literally find that I have to give myself a pep talk to work out because every day its the same thing..I DON'T FEEL LIKE IT!!!!   Now,  I know I need to lose weight and I desire to lose weight but I'm just waiting for my head and body to fall in line with each other.  I'm just waiting for it to become habit where I just get up and don't even think about what I'm doing.

On another note, I have Shaun T's Rockin Body and it is so much fun.  I find myself grinning from ear to ear when I do it especially his Disco workout!   My child came in and saw me and said he was going to video tape me and put it on Youtube.  lol  That's an automatic ass whooping if he does and I find out about it because I am not trying to become the next You Tube Sensation.  One more bit of news I'd like to share.  After days of stepping on the scale and watching it fluctuate between 219 and 220 lbs.  I stepped on today and it read 216.  Not much but hey, I'll take it.  I just need to see some semblance of evidence that the work I've been doing is not in vain.    I did 30 minutes on the Wii fit and to make up for yesterday's missed activity and the Hula Hooping is no joke.  My heart rate got up to 173 bpm trying to beat the high score and I could definitely feel it in my abs.  lol I also did Rockin' Body Disco Groove too

No I didn't fall off. Well at least I don't consider it falling off

Yes, I'm still on my workout grind. But because I had guests and the kiddies out of school for the holiday, I was hard pressed to find some time to get in a workout. That's right.... from last week Wednesday to Sunday I did nada but I was back in the swing of things yesterday and today. I did my first lower body workout yesterday and you can best believe I am feeling it today. I remember at one point I could do this entire workout and not get winded or tired...Now I had to take breaks. Just think, If I had kept it up when I first started working out, I'd be slim and trim and fit as a fiddle by now. Makes me angry when I think about it but what can I do but keep the momentum going. Normally, I'll wait to the new Year to start working out again and make my New Year's resolution that I'd undoubtedly break within a month or two. This time, by the time New Years rolls around, I'll already have a month and a half in. I have a good 50 lbs that I'd like to lose (maybe more) so I have t get with it and stick with it!
