I am, a Porkchop
Yup, when I received a text from my best friend describing us both as 'porkchops' there wasn't anything I could do except laugh. I am a porkchop! btw - those are the kind of friends that you want. No sugar coating.
I am getting ready to get back on the wagon, back on track and the road to healthy - shed some serious pounds! After finishing Commit 2 Fit 2011 I am always charged up to keep on going, the challenge always gives me the push I need to get organized and start planning for more.
Right now I am probably at my heaviest - EVER. With the help of correct dressing and spanx I was able to disguise it for a while. Now there isn't enough spanx that I can wear comfortably to live the lie. LOL! With Commit 2 Fit I was able to get rid of some bad habits, but now I have to take the good habits I picked up and amplify them. I want to lose inches, % of body fat, and pounds. Once I get through step one [below] I will blog post my goal numbers. Not sure I am brave enough to post bathing suit photos... if I do, will you? :)
Step One - go back to Weight Watchers. I need those meetings, the journaling, and to watch my portions. They worked in the past. And how inspiring is Jennifer Hudson?? I will still continue to supplement with Advocare products and work them into my points. My first meeting back is going to be tonight so I will report my weigh in - I may try some other meeting times closer to where I live. Anyone in the Vancouver area attend meetings? If so, which one? I might check out Monday evenings too...
Step Two - get moving. I have been trying to run and trying...but I am a fair weather runner - which means with the weather we have been having I don't get out much. Running is hard enough as it is - add down pours with hail, definitely not going. I really don't like the gym [germs] and right now I don't want to spend the money on a trainer. Solution... P90X. A couple of years ago I borrowed my sisters set [shhh] just to see what it was like. I actually liked it! We really didn't have a place to do the workouts without moving a bunch of furniture around each time I wanted to work out. Now, I have moved some things around and will possibly have a set up in the garage. I just ordered my own set yesterday so I have a few days to figure it out. Do you do P90X? If you do I would love to know!
Step Three - physical exam and run some level test with my doctor. At 42 things are changing and I want to make sure that I am supplementing correctly.
Let me know if you want to join me - let's encourage each other! OR if you are already way ahead - we need your encouragement -
