If you guys have been coming here long enough then you know  . . .  I admit a lot of things.
*It's all about keeping it real, ya know?

Today I admit - - - I am lazy.
also - - - I am out of shape.
and - - - I could spare to lose a few pounds.
Oh and - - - I am not the healthiest eater.

Uh, I think that covers everything FOR TODAY.

Do you watch The Biggest Loser? I'm often amazed by their transformations. 
A-M-A-Z-E-D
To see where they started and how they ended is just WOAH!

Admit Admit Admit . . .
Oh alright, I'll admit that I watch the beginning and end.
The middle? Ya know, where they exercise and eat healthy and want to die?
I don't watch that.
:GASP:

Ok, there was this one time I watched but I was eating a cupcake and felt guilty so I changed the channel.

WHY don't I watch?

I'm lazy.
I'm also impatient.
Ya see, I want to lose the weight and be healthy YET I don't want to do the work.
:Sigh:
I'm slowly but surely trying to implement some lifestyle changes though.
My hubby? Oh, he's been on the right track for awhile.
He's such a show off.

PFP

Crunchy Green Mom - Suzanne B. on June 15, 2010 at 1:07 PM said...

I started yesterday with my 16 year old daughter.

25 pounds by August 19th.

How? We are running the high school track, running up and down the "death" hill the football players use. 3 times a week... abs 3 times a week and yoga... in between those days.. :)

Why? Because I'm ready.. Because she wants to start her junior year off with a bang!

Huge Bang!

Fangirl Jen on June 15, 2010 at 1:08 PM said...

The Biggest Loser already inspired me to start losing weight. I am at 15 pounds and counting. My goal is another 20 pounds. I am eating healthier and exercising (nearly) every day.

Fangirl Jen on June 15, 2010 at 1:10 PM said...

I've also given up my diet soda at lunch and keep a bottle of water (refillable) on my desk.

Fangirl Jen on June 15, 2010 at 1:11 PM said...

One tip is to never "eat out of a container/bag". You need to set your portion size and stick to it. Endless boxes and bags will encourage endless eating.

Fangirl Jen on June 15, 2010 at 1:11 PM said...

My husband and I have made the commitment to get healthier and lose weight together. It helps to have a partner. He's down 25 pounds so far.

Karissa on June 15, 2010 at 1:52 PM said...

I am going on runs with the dog, slowly, but still considered running!

Karissa on June 15, 2010 at 1:52 PM said...

I started counting calories.. I can't believe how much (or little) adds up so quick!

Karissa on June 15, 2010 at 1:54 PM said...

I am trying to fill up on water, instead of eating, because lots of times that is just it! You are thirsty~

Karissa on June 15, 2010 at 1:54 PM said...

I am trying to always keep moving! I know it looks spastic sometimes, but I am constantly trying to be moving my body!!

tattwo on June 15, 2010 at 2:04 PM said...

I have developed my own water aerobic routine and will do water aerobics 2x/week and walk 2x/week Thanks.

I want to start using my workout videos again.

The Jacobsen Family! on June 15, 2010 at 5:17 PM said...

Being 6 mo preg, I can't try to lose weight right now. But once baby is born, he and I and my other 3 kiddos will be doing a lot of bike riding and walking, Monday-Saturday. I also have some pilates videos I need to get back to doing. LOVE them! =)

kakihara on June 16, 2010 at 12:04 AM said...

I am reducing my portion size--I eat pretty healthy--but I like most people eat too much. Before I eat I drink a whole glass of water and take my vitamins then I will start with 3/4 sized portions--I hope to get to 1/2 size portions. I walk 4 days a week at least 30 minutes, but I'm going to up that to 45 minutes.

slehan on June 16, 2010 at 12:53 AM said...

I park my car at the end of the parking lot so I have farther to walk.

slehan on June 16, 2010 at 12:54 AM said...

I take the stair whenever I can. (I do draw the line at 10 story buildings)

slehan on June 16, 2010 at 12:54 AM said...

I play energetic music when I clean. It makes me move more and have more fun doing it.

I try to get 8 hours of sleep. You can do more with a good night's sleep.

I limit myself to one fast food meal a month. I like McDonald's kids meal.

slehan on June 16, 2010 at 12:58 AM said...

When I go to the grocery store with my $30 Kroger card I will buy only fruits & veggies. Thanks.

slehan on June 16, 2010 at 12:58 AM said...

Walking probably. I hate exercise workouts. Walking is more interesting.

Deborah on June 16, 2010 at 4:10 AM said...

Well, I've tried diets and exercise programs but I've found the weight just comes back...so I'm trying something new. I'm trying to change how I eat and live by making positive choices (ie: I love roasted, seasoned sweet potatoes...so I'll eat them instead of potato chips) instead of saying I'm not allowed to have this or can't eat that. asthenight at gmail dot com

Darlene on June 16, 2010 at 5:08 AM said...

I walk at the fitness center.

buzzd on June 16, 2010 at 5:46 AM said...

I am eating more fresh fruits and veggies. I am also walking daily and have pulled out the exercise equipment and am starting a routine 3 days a week.

guettel78 on June 16, 2010 at 6:21 AM said...

I start each day with an hour on the treadmill, and I supplement that exercise by playing tennis at least twice a week, walking or biking to work whenever I can, and taking small steps like parking at the far end of lots and taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Foodwise, I definitely try to count calories and keep my intake under 2000 a day to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks!

guettel78 on June 16, 2010 at 6:23 AM said...

I've also begun to replace unhealthy snacks and drinks with better options - water or Vitamin Water for soft drinks and fresh fruit for candy. Also, when I do indulge, I try to make up for it by exercising more or getting myself immediately back on track without getting discouraged. Thanks!

I don't have time for an actual exercise routine, so my routine includes parking far away from everywhere (work included), powerwalking thru the grocery store, 100 baby lifts per day (minimum), there is no such thing as an elevator or escalator, and carnal sweating as often as possible. Who needs a gym?!?
