Gettin' it in Gear

Remember when the New Year began and I told myself I was going to get in shape?

Yea, well that lasted for all of TWO weeks.
I was doing really good, using my bender ball every day, doing ALL three of the workouts, not just one. I also got sick right around this time, and the medicine I was taking caused loss of appetite.
Lucky me, right?

Anyways, during that time, I was able to lose 5 lbs.
And then school started, and projects started, and stress started.
And then I stopped working out.

But then I saw this picture that my sister posted on her blog.......

I had almost forgotten about it.
Look how skinny I was!

This was not long after Aaron's 'quarter life' crisis, and we had broken up for a while.
I went through some sort of depression stage [I think?] and Nanny literally had to make me eat. I was around 120lbs here.
I want to get back to that...or atleast close.

So, I've decided to go running/walking 3 days a week, and do the bender ball at least 2 times a week.

Today I woke up [at 6 am--crazy, right?] and weighed myself.
Right now my goal is to lose 10 lbs.
I put Kami on the leash, and off we went.
I'm not sure exactly HOW far we walked, because the stupid pedometer I bought didn't end up working, but I know it had to be AT LEAST a mile. We were gone a good 30 minutes.

I'm not posting this because I think that you guys are interested in me losing weight, I just really need SOME sort of accountability.
I watched Lying to be Perfect the other night on Lifetime, and thought the whole Cinderella Pact was a cool idea...until I realized that I had absolutely no one to do it with.

So, Thanks sister for getting my butt in gear.
I hope I can really stay motivated this time!!

You can do it! Get in your car and drive the distance that you want to walk and see where you have to go. Does that make sense? In my old neighborhood, I knew exactly where the 1 mile and 2 mile marks were on my walk b/c of that.

I am not overweight by any means, but I do wish I was in better shape. I have absolutely no motivation to work out!

I think Cassie has a fabulous idea!

I have no doubt that you will be successful at this. Keep us updated!

um same thing happened to me hehe. I WAS going really well but then life got busy. I woke my butt up at 630 this morning and dragged it to my gym haha. I feel soo soo good today because I did that. I just keep reminding myself that I am doing this because it makes me feel better and because I am getting married and I want to look as sexy as I feel.

I kind of made it a promise to myself and so far it is working ;)

good luck and know that you can always message me when you need to motivation :)
