I must confess that during the holidays, I completely neglected my workout regime. Why? Because I’m greedy. LOL! I love the holidays because of all the variety of delicious foods that are available, or that I cook.
Now that I’ve returned to my workout regime, I realize that I never should had stopped. My stopping was just an excuse to go off my regime and now I must retrain my body all over again. Not to mention that if I had continued my regime, I would not have gained so much weight. Just before the holidays I was down to 195lbs and when I stepped on the scale (talking scale) on New Year’s day I was shock to hear that I was at 204.4lbs. I swear heard the woman’s voice on my scale clear her throat. 😉 So it’s back to the ole drawing board.
This time around I’ve convinced my wife, Joanne to jump on the bandwagon and we’ve been walking around our apartment complex twice in the morning and I have also been utilizing my Pilates machine along with a couple of other exercises, (75 sit-ups 25 full sit-ups, 25 crunches, 25 bicycle side to side, 10 push up and 25 leg lifts).
I know that this journey is not going to be easy, because it is way easier to find an excuse not to exercise. So I have to keep telling myself that, I am doing this for ME, and I can do it MYSELF, for I am important and it needs to be done.
And if that doesn’t work try this for Motivation (see below)
