This is not a New Years Resolution I would like to say first BUT now that I have gotten the go ahead from my doctor to begin working out again it is time to kick it in to gear! This whole not exercising for 6 weeks has done my body in. And the 2 months before my surgery where I was just feeling awful didn't help either.
I have always had an hourglass figure and with me being 5'3" and all of my weight plopping front and center on my chest, which my husband doesn't mind but I do, I need to be aware of my weight. I don't so scales, they're evil but my husband posses one and I am a glutton for punishment so I climbed on and then began to cry hysterically. OK, I didn't but inside I was throwing a full blown tantrum.
I am 30 years old and I can't just walk around the block and the weight come off like it did when I was 21. Back in 2005 I went on a weight loss medication called Phentermine and WOW, I loved this stuff! I dropped weight like I drop wine;-) but my doctor said
"Andrea after 5 years normally woman gain all their weight back so you need to change your lifestyle and how you eat."
I didn't listen nor did I care. It's not like I was wearing a 0 but I was looking great but again, I didn't listen or learn anything. I feel as if I cheated, I didn't really put all that much effort into it and let the drugs do all the work. Oh how I love that easy pill and would love to do it again. However, I need to do it the right way, the hard way, I need learn, I need to sweat and say naughty "car words" while squatting in pain.
Hubby and I made a pact to stop sabotaging one another and do nothing but support, support, support! He has told me No! No! to the little Magic Pill so here we go boys and girls. I signed up for Sparkpeople.com (love this site, used it before, dropped 10 pounds), we have purchased Your Shape for Xbox 360 Kinect (feel the burn)
and I bought Tracy Anderson's book (we'll see).
So there you have it.
Again, I am not looking to be a size 6, that it soooooo unrealistic but the pounds I have put on over the past few months need to vacate my body ASAP! After Dr.H hacked into my abs I need to get those re-trained and back into shape.
Did I mention that I really like that little Magic Pill, Okay, enough about that, I can do it, my hubby can do it and our lifestyle needs to get a healthy reality check:-)
However, I did fit my Starbucks Black Tea Lemonade in there;-)
