OK all,

I had a realization after actualy looking at myself in the mirror that... I am not in good shape. I am at a point where I need to make changes for the healthy side and so I can feel better about myself and enjoy life more.

I ordered an excersize P90X DVD series and it comes with a nutrition plan that I may need to adjust; it should be here this coming friday or a little later.

I am going to hit this and hit it hard becuase that is the way I need to things... if I ease in I wont do it.

I wanted to find out if anyone out here wouldn't mind being my kick in the rear or at least check on me if I'm doing it. Accountability is a key to this and I figure the more people I answer to the better.

So if you are willing to I would appreciate it... I am going to do weigh in on Wednesday and take my before shots then too.


Thanks in advance!

Mirrors...they are the "devil" invention...I rarely look in the mirror (maybe I should..lol) for it is a distorted image of yourself that you see. I use it to comb my hair and such otherwise...what you see is what you get...that's my motto.

But as far as your program goes I too started a similar one...but mine is not something like a "severe diet" for I really have to go slowly and though I used to know how to eat properly...these past years because of long work hours and sickness I've let go a bit of my good eating habits...so I am learning to eat better again and what what should be eaten with what...

And if you need support of any kind well I could be your support if you want and try my best to encourage you.

At least you start on a positive note and you have acknowledge the fact that you need to do something for yourself being....that's a good start in the right direction. thumbs_up.gif

Hi deadeye08. I will be happy to help you as well. It sounds like you have started the first step. I agree with LOA mirrors are evil! How is it going for you? I haven't had the time to exercise but plan on getting back into the swing of things this weekend. I have a exercise thread here feel free to post there as well. That's how I keep track of myself and I also have a calendar on my desk that I mark with a red X so that it sits in front of me...nagging..lol I always tell myself it's not a negative thing, it's time for me and I'm worth it. It just makes you feel so much better!!

If I might add don't over do as it can cause a burn out effect. Getting into shape takes a time and a entire life style change to stay that way. You didn't get "out of shape" overnight. Don't make any excuses and if you get off track get back on as soon as you can. This P90X DVD looks like a great work out.

Ok....will check and see how your doing this weekend. thumbs_up.gif

Dont weight yourself every day, try weekly!

Stay away from people who eat aweful because that is so mean sad.gif

I sure wanted to add my support deadeye08. When you feel that you have someone that is interested in how you are doing it really helps. I had my eye (no pun intended) on that very same program. But to save money I decided to move my CrossBow weight machine out of the extra bedroom and into my bedroom to make me face it everyday. We are blessed with great areas to walk but my husband does not want me to walk alone so I have to schedule more for that activity.

So today is Wednesday. Have you started yet?

Hey all.... thanks for the checking up on me! I have been actually working out on the P90X series everyday... I have to say it does really kick my butt... in a good way.

I am in my third week now and I have noticed a difference. I am looking trimmer and less bloated. I have not had soda since I started as well and have been fairly better about eating and less junk. I sneak in an occasional gummy worm or what not in just to reward myself. I am going to start running too to help the cardio side of things.

I do appreciate the checking in and sorry I haven't been active here as much as I'd like. I have been working a lot and trying to muster up more work for my business... so fun time is dwindling.

I hope everyone else is doing well and we can all work together.

Well thank you for letting us know on your progress Rodgar...

Changing bad eating habits is sometimes the most difficult thing to do for some...but when one puts real efforts in it in the end it's all worth while for your selfesteem.

Keep it up!!!

I am tired of being out of shape and I am tired becuase I am out of shape... funny huh? =)

Well again I thank you all for checking in and the random PMs I get. Hopefully all you are doing well and that you are keeping up with your goals.

Nice Job on the weight loss Deadeye, what are you down to now? I saw the ads for that P90X and it looked a bit gimmicky to me but that's great it is working for you! thumbs_up.gif

Congrats, deadeye. It is tough sometimes in this hectic world we all lead to find the time for ourselves. But it's the times and days when you get down or are not feeling well and you still do your workout that will benefit you the most. It's easy to do it when you have plenty of time, no kids or other stressors about, and are feeling like you just had a 10 hour sleep. Unfortunately most of us don't get that. So congratulate yourself. A suggestion, if you don't do it already...get yourself a full length mirror and use it every few weeks. But just as you shouldn't weigh yourself everyday due to water retention and several other factors, I wouldn't use the mirror everyday either. How often do you hit the scales? Weekly? Bi-weekly? Maybe rotate that mirror with the scale. Their's nothing vain about it, it's just good to be able to see your progress. Once you can, it's easier and easier to motivate yourself to keep going and driving on with your routine.

OK, 1 back injury and two overeating vacations later… I started back up late June… I am tired of screwing up my schedule… its like a 2 steps forward 3 steps back kinda thing… I need to keep it going and not falter. I became a coach for Beachbody also… www.coachr2.com so if you are interested in the program check out my site. But I thank you all for keeping up on here (more so then I do). I really do appreciate it. =)
