Oh Yeah...Time To Work On My Bod
I had to take a couple of bloggy days off because I was in the thick of a reality television bonanza. One of my most embarrassing weaknesses is my love of Reality TV. I don't love it all, but I am still hooked on a few that would probably make you shake your head. This actually isn't about my embarrassing love of Reality TV, but because I watched a specific show, a chain of events ensued.
This weekend The Biggest Loser began, and I was totally convicted as well as inspired. I love the show. I really do. I was bummed though, because last year at this time. When I watched the show and I had just lost about 35 pounds. Enter 2013 and I found it all and then some. Needless to say, I am a little bit annoyed with myself, but I will be darned if I am going to watch The Biggest Loser and not make some changes of my own.
I told my husband that I needed to get back to the gym. I had been putting this off because since I have begun my on air schedule, I do not have the time I once did. I used to get out of work at 2 pm, head to the gym by my son's high school and workout until he met me there (he would walk over from school). I would get a good hour and a half work out in, and that kept my weight steady (I'm hypothyroid so weight loss is a bit of a struggle). I get out of the studio later now so I really have only enough time to get to my son's school to pick him up and wait about ten minutes for him to be dismissed. Because of this change in time, I have let everything fall to the wayside. EVERYTHING. And now all my hard work is nothing but a memory. I have to begin again. I found a gym on our side of town that is only $10 a month (It's called Fitness For $10 if you want to see if there is one near you). I had been saving up for an elliptical so I could work out at home, but that is far pricier. Scott and I talked about it. We scheduled a gym shopping date, and now I am a member. He didn't join yet, but I am hoping if I stick with it, he will join in too.
Now I haven't gone yet. I know right? Nothing like getting inspired, deciding to do something, making a financial commitment and then not following through. I had good reason though. I needed a few things first (replacement sneakers and minor items), but I have picked them up and I will begin tomorrow. Promise. I guess this will work well with my two week goal of trying something new every two weeks.
I am really hoping that at some point I will get my weight down. I'm breaking things down into mini goals. First goal is 10 pounds. Once I lose 10 lbs I plan to get a Yonanas machine. I'm hoping that will also give me enough time to afford it. :)
