I started this blog a few years ago with a friend that lived in another state, as a way for us to keep track of our dieting/exercise goals and to hold each other accountable. We both found that we do better with our health goals when we have a partner in crime, or at least someone to make us feel guilty about skipping our workout. Life got in the way, and we both fell off the face of blogger world.
But after stumbling upon Whatz the Skinny, I'm once again motivated to not only get my arse up off the couch, but to make my goals, successes, and yes, even my failures, known to the whole word. This time, I'll be going solo.
My large scale or long term fitness goals:
Break the sugar addiction. Again. Yes, I've accomplished this once before and fell right back into it. I'm an all or nothing person, what can I say.
Turn the gelatinous material in my thighs into muscle. As a matter of fact, turn every bit of gelatinous material in my body into muscle. Bye bye, bat wings. No more jiggle butt. NO MORE jiggle butt.
Increase my strength, stamina, and athleticism. I'm no athlete. Not by any stretch of the imagination. But I firmly believe that I can become one, even if I can't become an exceptionally graceful one.
Wear shorts this summer. And a bathing suit. It has been years since I've worn either, and it's time. Oh, it's time.
Be the person I WANT to be. Okay, so that sounds a bit cheesy. But it's true! I want to be an athletic, toned, peaceful on the inside person. I wasn't born that way, so I''m going to have to work at it.
My short term goals:
Start an exercise routine. I get bored easily, feel judged in gyms, and am broke as a joke. So I work out at home. I own P90X, the 30 Day Shred, and a Wii Fit. I have a medicine ball, a medicine ball workout DVD, weights, resistance bands, yoga mats and an Ab Lounge. I have no excuse.
Lower my caloric intake. It's out of control.
Blog about it here. And find some readers to hold me accountable.
