I KNOW what to do. Get up and move my a$$. That's what I have to do.
However, that seems like nothing more than a fleeting idea half the time. When I do get up and get on the treadmill I come up with really lame excuses to hop off early. Like "oops my iPod died. Better go home."
The absolute most success I have had yet in reaching physical fitness milestones (not weight, but activity and ability to do stuff) was when I had Nina, my first personal trainer. She came to my house between two and three times per week for about 6 months and I lost over 10 sizes during that time! That's not minor. That's some major stuff right there.
We did a little cardio, a lot of weights and plyometrics, lunges, crunches, squats, push-ups and sit-ups. We did reps of things. Always more than I wanted to do, and more than I would have done if left to my own choices.
ALL THAT SAID....tomorrow morning, I meet "Kim." Kim is the new Nina, the new Attila,the new drill sergeant, the new task master. She will be coming here at 6:00 a.m. initially (I hope she can come at 5:30 a.m. as we move along) and we'll go the the little fitness center here. There are weights, a little floor space, treadmills (to warm up before she gets there) and a big tv with DVD. Once she assesses me and my goals, we will come up with a master plan.
And then....I am going to pay her to tell me what to do!
I wish I could say I have what it takes deep down to do all this completely on my own, but I just don't. I WANT it, but I don't HAVE it yet. But that's why people like her exist. To help people like me. You know I'm going to keep you posted on this one.....
Wish me luck!
I am WORKING OUT and WORKING HARD at WORKING TOWARD my goals.
