100LB Weightloss Journey – On The Road Again
Well, today is Day#1 of 60 days of commitment to not only myself but to my family….and my wonderful support system. My brother, Mike with Blue Ace Fitness and his wife, my sister, Carin with Beachbody are putting me through my paces to get me back on track to losing that nasty 100LBS that is hanging (hehehe…eeewwww) around on me.
This morning I walked with neighbour M for 1 hour which the distance worked out to be like 4km, I think she said….and then tonight I agreed to join the “Fit Club” workout….yeah…that sucked…I’m not going to lie. The workout they were doing was WAY above my abilities…even some of the mods were too hard for me to push through…..it hurt…and still hurts…and I am sure I will still hurt tomorrow….but…GUESS WHAT?!?!?!
I survived…and being in a group setting…albeit kind of embarassing…I am the biggest one there…was fun..the moral was great…and I even found myself yelling back at the workout video we were trying out.
I pushed myself a little too hard for my first night, however….I’m not going to stop going just because it wasn’t easy…I’m going to keep going…the only one I hurt by giving up…is me…noone can do this for me..I have to do it…and it’s not going to be fun (well, sometimes it will, because I do enjoy some workouts)…and it’s not going to be easy…and I am going to have to make it a priority over a few other things in my life to get the results I want…and need.
I have carpal tunnel in my wrists..and more so in my right then left…but I am now wearing a brace, thanks to my cousin and with losing weight, I have been told that it should improve……yup….just like my kidney stone issue will most likely go away with eating better and losing weight….gee…see a pattern? I use to get so mad when doctors would blame everything on my weight…but..with the tests and surgeries I have been going through..I’m getting the same message…too bad someone didn’t slap my with that jellyfish sooner (sorry…from another post)….I didn’t want to hear it..that my weight was the cause of most of my ailments…just like I do not like being told what to eat and what not to eat (it usually makes me so angry that I just end up eating more out of spite…hurting none but myself.)
But, the reality is…my weight and eating habits are literally killing me and I need to wake up and start taking care of me before it’s too late. There are too many things in life I want to do/experience/see and I can’t do that if I am dead.
Do you get the message yet? Find your passion or motivation and if you have to re-find it every so often..do it…and find someone who can really support you without criticism or putting you down because you really wanted to have that sweet treat..you need someone who can fully be there positively for you! Someone understanding and empathetic. The type of person that says “well, you ate that brownie or bag of chips..so what..you’re human…did you enjoy them? great. Now how about we go for a walk together”…or…how about “next time you feel like eating them..give me a call and maybe we can find a better choice to curb your cravings..I know it’s really tough not to eat something you really enjoy..but, if you want let’s find some alternatives that work for you”
You need someone like that.
Anyhoo…my body still is still vibrating from that workout…. I completely forgot to tell you what it was…I think it was Phase 1 from Chalean Extreme…. It made me want to cry…no lie… so don’t choose this if you are just getting started..pick something that you can stick to. Tomorrow I am starting the “Body Gospel” workouts…kind of nervous as it looks like there might be a bit of religiousness going on in it…while I consider myself to be a woman of faith…I would not choose to include it in my workouts normally….so..we’ll see if it is over done or just the right amount to go along with my journey of losing 100Lbs and living a gratitude filled life.
Many thanks to all of you who stop by..please feel free to share your stories with me!
I’ll be sharing a new healthier muffin recipe in the “Baked Goods” section sometime this week so please check it out (hopefully by friday) as these muffins were tastey! And much healthier then I would normally make…and my little girl LOVES them too! Ps: they had fruit AND veggies in them!
Lots of love and best wishes to all of you!
