THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION! If I inspire one person from this blog then that is such an added bonus. Also, I want to say that starting a work out program is not easy. People get down on themselves for not working out. My advice is to find something that you think you will like or a challenge for yourself. If you don't have people to work out with then go join a gym and get into a class. THEY DON'T CARE IF YOU ARE OUT OF SHAPE AND CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THEM!! I promise you, they are just happy you are there. Do you know why they are happy to see you? Because they were you at some point. 99% of people are like you. There are NOT a lot of people who stayed in shape from the time they were in high school; there are a few people out there who achieved this and they are called freaks of nature!! LOL okay not really, but they were awesome people who didn't let certain life changing events change them. CONGRATS to you people out there who were able to do this. This is a HUGE achievement! If you are scared of gym then look within your community and find another class. There is one in Salina that has NOTHING to do with a gym, they do turbo kicks (which is like kick boxing), it is a GREAT class. I wish I had time to do that class again, it just doesn't fit into my schedule right now. If you want info on this class please text me, call me, or FB me. I will gladly pass on the info.
Secondly, find a way to be accountable. Start a blog!! Okay that might not be for everyone, but find something. There are groups on FB and at gyms that can help. If you need me to text you once a day, I will do that! We can help each other be accountable. I also use myfitnesspal app, which helps me keep track of my calories and what I eat every day, so if you need to join me on that please feel free to add me as a friend!! The more people I have surrounding me with the same goal, the better chance I have to succeed and the better chance I can help you achieve your goals! We can help each other out. I know WE can do this!! I am on instagram and I have become a little obsessed with it (sorry people!!), but I am going to try to do better with taking pics of healthy meals that I make. So feel free to join me on there.
You guys/gals, I am not an expert, I am JUST like you. I am trying to lose the weight the best way I know how. I don't want to take any pills or weight loss drug. I am doing my best to do this the old fashion way with healthy eating and exercise! Oh yeah and blogging!! :) That is why I ask for suggestions or recipes. I AM NEW TO THIS!! But I have this great tool called the Internet. Have you heard of it?? Oh you must have because you are reading this blog! LOL (I swear that is the last LOL you will see today!)But it has been a great tool. But I love to hear what my close friends and family have done or are doing to lose weight. So please don't feel like you are bugging me if you send me a new recipe that you like or an exercise that you like doing. I also want to hear any new achievements or goals that you met! I get inspiration from your achievements. It pushes me harder! I need to be pushed!! Not physically, but you know what I mean. And if you need a push, let me know and I will do my best to push you (figuratively).
Well once again you have wasted a perfectly good 10 minutes reading my blog. (I got that from cartalk, they use to be on NPR, a funny talk show. AWWW I miss them!) Take care everyone. Put down that candy bar and go eat an apple!
I bought those the other day and they sat in my car for over 24 hours without me eating them :) This girl is starting to make some progress. Now they are sitting in my house which might be as dangerous. I NEED to give them away to someone. Chocolate is bad for dogs, right? I am joking, I know it is. Cats?!?!
