Healthy LivingI've been trying to lose a few pounds that I gained after I got married. Nothing huge, only 8 or 9 pounds... but when you're a tiny gal like me (4'10"), that can see like a huge goal to attain. I've started implementing cardio intervals whenever I can, and some strength training. So far, I haven't made any huge break-throughs. I know I should be happy with myself (I am at a normal weight), but I really miss my clothes! I want to get back into my favorite pencil skirts... which means I really need to shed a few pounds.
My hubs and I have Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30 DVDs. Sometimes, that's exactly how I feel... "IS THIS GOOD YET???" I like how fast-paced the moves are, and the predictability of the circuits. I really enjoy Level 1 of the 30DS, so it's my go-to workout when I want something in 25 minutes or less. My husband has been using the Ripped in 30 DVD, and I am definitely too wimpy right now to try it. I feel like I haven't quite crossed that invisible line in healthy living... My diet is clean 80% of the time, but for some reason I haven't overcome my fear of high intensity exercise. I'm so afraid of just failing or making a fool out of myself! Although, I do such a good job of that on my own... I really don't need Jillian's help. I guess I should make that a goal for this summer, hmmm?
I want to be good to my body, and I know a sedentary lifestyle is NOT treating my body with respect. I am not going to say that I currently live a sedentary lifestyle... I used to, but I've really upped my physical activity the past couple years or so. I just know that I have more to go to be where I want to be.
Also, I plan on going to the ol' library soon. Any suggestions for books I should grab for my summer reading? Any tips on overcoming fear of intense exercise? Sorry to keep things so serious on a Thursday afternoon... I'll try to lighten up a bit!
