Now that we’re done with all the Christmas parties, candy, presents and extraordinary eating, it is time for me to focus a little more on getting healthy. I have jumped on the weight loss bandwagon multiple times before just to fall off again. I know that I always feel much better when I’m actively making healthier choices. Now is the time for me to regroup, gather some motivation and get my body moving more.
This week, our family joined a gym! We have been at the gym every day since we joined. Yep, we’ve spent 3 days there. We’re on a role! You should have seen what a “star athlete” I was last night playing racquetball. Let’s just say, my husband was being VERY patient with me! Tonight, I DID NOT want to go. I brought my Kindle hoping I’d at least be able to read, so I sat and read while I was pushing the pedals of a bike. I barely noticed that I was exercising even though my legs were all wobbly like jello when I got up. I still plan to do my T-tapp DVD’s, too. In fact, I think they’re better than the gym, but for now I’m just trying to get into a better routine and set aside some time for the older half of our family to get some exercise (kids 12 and up can go and use the equipment, too). I may even take my DVD’s with me to the gym and do them there. They said that I can use their TV and DVD Player in the workout room for any DVD’s I may want to use.
So what does this have to do with you? I’m hoping that YOU will join me! Yes, you heard that right. I need some motivation. Some companions to “run the race” with. I need your ideas and your pat on the back. I need you to tell me it’s OK when I mess up and to not give up! So, in the spirit of having motivation, I decided to host a blog hop linky party here on Sidetracked Sarah. It won’t be all about losing weight, but about getting healthy in general. So, get your motivation on and join me on Mondays at Get Motivated Mondays! We’ll start Monday, January 2nd.
