Here we go again! This time I'm gonna make it stick!
I started a weight loss/fitness journal a few months back, but nothing ever came of it. I've made small changes in my lifestyle. I no longer drink pop (well, not entirely true, I treat myself every Saturday to a Dr. Pepper). I eat cleaner, and buy a lot less processed food. I exercise a couple of times a week, and even started the Tyson Method 6 week bootcamp this past week (thus the sore booty and aching legs). In total I've lost 6 lousy pounds since last November. :(
I'm not doing enough to get myself into the shape I want to be. I need to kick it up a couple of notches, push myself harder. My motivation in the past has always been to look good, but that has changed in recent months. On Christmas Eve my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. We are blessed that it was diagnosed early (stage 1). She had a mastectomy in January and is now cancer free. But it got me thinking... I realize that I can't completely eliminate the risk of getting breast cancer, but I can certainly do a lot of things to reduce it. And in the event that I ever get sick, I want to be in good health so I have the energy to fight back!
So this is it. This is my last best effort to get it done. No more excuses. I have about 10 different workouts on DVD, hand weights, yoga mat, running shoes, an elliptical and a supportive DH. I'm ready to do this!
