Scare me into working out please
Some days I think it would take a huge, burly personal trainer banging on my door to intimidate me into working out.
It seems if I miss a day, I tend to find an excuse to miss the next day. Then two weeks later I realize I have excused myself back to square one.
I feel better when I work out, so I don’t know why I just can’t get motivated.
Clutter is more than a house thing
Clutter can be in your mind and on your body.
Got some extra clutter to get rid of? I surely do. Thanks to hours behind a laptop, this past year has “stayed with me”. 🙁
When I was younger, I was a workout fanatic…like two hours a day. What happened? Three kids happened and sucked all my time and energy, I guess. Well there is just another excuse.
Time for a new beginning
So today I am starting Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred workout for the fifth time. Yes, I have made it to week 2 about five times. If you watch The Biggest Loser, you’ll recognize her as the mean trainer, but she’s good.
This attempt will be different because I am publicly announcing it and will log my daily progress here. It takes 21 days to form a habit, and I figure if I make it 30 days, it will stick.
Even with a hectic, busy lifestyle, I have no excuse for not finding 20-30 minutes to work out each day.
Schedule time for a workout daily
Part of organizing our lives should include a daily workout of some sort, even if it is just a refreshing 20-30 minute walk. Do it for yourself, your family, and your health.
“Strong body, strong mind”
I’m a big fan of Denise Austin’s Hit the Spot – Pilates DVD. She is always saying “Strong body, strong mind”. I think it is so true.
When you are in shape you feel empowered…you can do anything.
Interested in trying a 30 day challenge yourself? Let me know, and we will cheer each other on!
My twelve-year-old daughter is joining me. I’m sure my four-year-old will be there, too, distracting me and making me laugh with her hip circles. The two girls aren’t the big, burly personal trainer, but their participation helps.
Day 1: I survived workout #1! I had to take a 20 minute power nap after *sigh*. I know the energy will come eventually.
Day 2-5:Hanging in there. Getting easier.
