For months now I have been on a quest to get healthy by losing weight, eating right and getting enough sleep. My initial goal was 25by35, to lose 25pounds by my 35th birthday.
My birthday was in July and I am still 7pounds from goal. How you ask...well, every weekend (and sometimes during the week) the hubster and I are social butterflies and along with social gatherings and events comes fabulous food and drinks. I can lose 3pounds during the week to gain 5back on the weekend. Can this be considered a plateau...probably not?
Yesterday, I made a decision, after an intense workout to recommit to my health and blog about it. What better way to hold yourself accountable, then sharing it with the world. My motivation SITScation 2009 in 29days, Sin City, here I come!
So here is my challenge, I am going to...oooh do I dare even say quit drinking....of course not, I will however cut down significantly!! I am also going to target a weight loss of 10 pounds and commit to preplan my meals and exercise everyday, but Sunday!!!
And now for a giggle at my expense, here are my most recent Fitness Faux Pas:
- Belting Out of Tune: yesterday while kicking ass on the treadmill, I was rocking out to Pantera (I am a wide variety music kinda chica) and before I knew it I was belting out "RE-SPECT"...(needless to say I was caught up in the moment)!
- Tripping on the Treadmill: like the belting out of tune was not enough to make me aware of those around me; I followed up by slightly tripping. I did not skid out face first...only because I was holding the bar, thank God!
- Laughing Out Loud: while in the ab class, I noticed a few of my neighbors in the same class. I was working it, owning it, loving it...I was crunching so hard it hurt, so much that I let out....a huge....obnoxious...laugh. I admit it was extremely disruptive and caused the instructor to stop and ask if I was okay. (sidenote: I have a nervous twitch that causes me to laugh). So for the record I did apologize to the instructor, however I don't think she accepted and may work me and the class extra hard next time...should I take her flowers???
Okay well I shared my Fitness Faux Pas, now you share yours.....please tell me I am not the only dork that has faux pas while exercising???
