ok, so here is a little blog (it will be boring)
So I am here, working on my health (i say this as im sitting down... hmm maybe i should stand and type this )
I have been doing 20 min of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Im on level one becuase i will not let myself move on until I do the damn jumping jacks. But i refuse to do them (i do step ups instead) but really, who wants their fat bouncing around as you jump up and down waving your arms? NO ME! But thats ok, I will hold myself accountable and not move on until I get over myself and DO THEM. I put a tracker up on my comment signature thing (whatever its called) and it sure makes it look like I dont have that much weight to lose yay go me.. then i look at the numbers... ya its a long run here lol, but I knew that and I am ready for that. Although it did put one thing into prospective. It kinda made me realize that hey if i hit 280lbs, I have lost a significant fraction of what I am trying to lose. Ive been to 270 once before and plateaued. Then I decided to get out of my plateau I would eat less calories (it didnt work) Then i decided to eat more. Well it worked. +40lbs and I can safely say I am out of my plateau! but I weighed in at 312lbs....SO i maybe should have stopped with a 5lb gain or probably I could have upped my exercise. Oh well... its done now. Next time i plateau, I will be sure not to over correct it like last time, I think changing up exercise and continuing to eat right should be fine :). So I am here, I am doing this, i have a LONG way to go, but thats ok, I can do it :) Staying positive and motivated is the number one thing. I exercise everyday because one day off throws me for a bit of a loop and then i never get back to it... its all about finding what works for you.
