Here, is where I ask for help. Remember a few weeks ago when I had a post written about a boot camp? Yeah, the reason there was no follow up, is that I only worked out one day. That seems to be typical of me. I don't want to be like that. I don't want to sit on the couch every day, afraid to go outside and work out. I want to be healthy and lost the weight I gained in college. Yesterday, I gave myself a new goal, and I want to, I really do, want to achieve it. I do not want to sabotage myself, again. The new goal? Lose 10 pounds by September 12th. I have a tank top that I really want to wear on that day, and people I haven't seen in 2years. I wrote out a week's worth of workout plans, and for the most part, it's about an hour a day of exercise broke up into two parts. Honestly, I have all day, everyday that I could be working out. I know this is doable for me. Heck last night, the hub and I went on a small hike (25 minutes), 4 mile bike ride and then a cool down walk and it was fine. It's stuff like that I want to incorporate into my life on a daily basis again. Instead of sitting in front of my computer all damn day.
What am I unhappy about? Everything would be the short and simple answer, however there are specific things. My arms are too flabby, my stomach is NOT pregnant, and my thighs do not need to jiggle.
This is what I have at my disposal. The internet (that's how I watch 30 day shred!), walk away the pounds 2 mile tape, 8 pound weights (too much for my back to do too much with), a jump rope. a bike, and pavement. I've never been much of a runner, but in the last year I have tried making myself into one. I am doing better on the breathing which is the main part for me. I've even started the Couch to 5k about 4 times and made it to about week 4 each time, and then I stop.
So, the reason I am posting this? I know some of you workout and run. What workout type advice can you give me? Want to plan out a day of exercise for me? How about a week? This is what I have planned for the rest of the week... I know I have to constantly change it up, or I will stop. God I don't want to stop, but I always do and I want that to stop.
