I can’t believe I’m having problems making working out part of my normal lifestyle again. I danced ballet, tap and jazz for 20+ years, I was used to dancing three or four times a week for each class and from 7am to 3pm. Practicing new routines for hours on end daily. I danced all the way up to my 6th month of my pregnancy with my oldest daughter (17, ALMOST 18 years), I actually performed in a Play that ran for a week including two matinées on both Saturday and Sunday.
During high school, I ran cross country. After my divorce, I just stopped, I did run again after that on and off for years. .. Now I can’t get my motor running again. I’ve tried and I’m trying again. I did Zumba, I liked it but my playstation 3 stopped working and I gave up. I tried running again and my treadmill died, it’s like the fitness gods hate me.
I’m trying to get started again with Julianne Michaels. It’s a six week program, I’m hoping to see some type of difference. I have back fat, BACK FAT! I have cellulite on my legs, um ew.
I’m trying to lose 40 to 60lbs. I have moved to this beautiful beach city and I want to put on a bathing suit this season. I picture myself on the beach, hair flowing and enjoying the sun. I don’t need to be in a two piece bathing (although I would love to be in one), a bathing suit that I just feel comfortable in would be great. A pair of jeans that I feel good in that aren’t too tight or too loose. A shirt that I can pull down that isn’t hanging off of me or keeps rolling up my stomach. I hate that I look like I’m three months pregnant. I feel good when I look good. I have never been in a position which I don’t look good in anything I put on.
Let’s hope I can do this, I mean my father used to say “I try means, I’ll fail”. So no trying… just doing.
Let’s get this party started.
Love and Later Days,
