I decided that every Monday I’m going to write about my progress in my Commitment to habit.
Last week I decided that I’m going to force myself into a work-out habit. Today was day 8. Yes, I’ve been really good and am quite proud of myself.
I have been working out for 45 minutes to an hour a day using the free On-Demand exercise videos. Also, I bought myself two DVD’s, both are ballet/pilates infusion.
Since last Monday, I’ve lost 5 POUNDS!! How crazy is that?! I know that isn’t going to be the norm, I’ve lived a yo-yo life enough to realize that the first few weeks, the weight comes off the fastest. I also know that the first 10 pounds is water weight.
In the 8 days of my Commitment to Habit, I can’t even tell you how much better I feel. I love the aches and pains of working out. I love how I have just *thatmuch* more energy already.
I forgot how much self confidence you can get back, just by working out.
I have a bunch of weight to lose and a bunch of body to firm up and I’m going to do it. My plan is to be down 30 pounds by August, in time for Blogher.
I’m thinking about a Commitment to Habit meme linky poo thing, what do you think? Anyone interested in joining me in making that commitment?
If you want to read my ACTUAL post, you can find me today here where I discuss having kids.
Also, I don’t know if you’ve heard but, I’m writing a sex/relationship/intimacy column called Sex Per Se,over on The Urbane Life. We’ve started an advice column called Dear Melissa. I know, right?! Don’t mind the pic, it’s an awful one. But, if you have any relationship/love/sex/intimacy questions that you are dying to ask, there’s some sort of form over there for you, or you can just ask me here and I’ll answer over there.
Well, I believe that is all for now. I know, you’re amazed at my way with words.
I amaze myself.
