You know I wouldn’t include measurements if I wasn’t doing this partnership with my personal trainer Sean Millhouse of Fitness 101, right?
I think of this Living Social deal like a sample. You don’t have to take the whole casserole all at once. You can just try one bite to see if you like it!
I love sampling.
What motivates you?
What do you think would help you get to the gym or to eat better?
Being able to fit into clothes I have held on to for so long once again does motivate me, but I’m also motivated by health. I know you can do everything right and still something could hit you that you have no control over. My experience working in a hospital for the last 13 years has shown me that there are some things that I could help prevent.
(And, trust me, I could do better at the prevention thing. I still eat things with sugar, for example, and I like myself a cold Diet Coke.)
There is a month left of this little fitness project and do you know what is included in that month? THANKSGIVING. After that, CHRISTMAS. I have got to be on my best behavior. I know that I am kind of a pro at eating decent during the week but that is only because I don’t have much choice. I have no time to eat much in the morning or at lunch. I do eat and I do eat sufficient calories and nutrients, but I don’t have the leisure to keep eating and eating…like I do on the weekends. This weekend alone I have had an Olive Garden catered lunch on Friday, Mexican food Friday night, breakfast out at one of our favorite places on Saturday and P. F. Chang’s on Sunday.
My point? I am not perfect and know that I could reverse everything in a very short period of time. I work when my kids are in school, so the times that they are off are dangerous times for my caloric intake- Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, Spring Break, SUMMER. I could totally go back up if I’m not careful.
That boot camp is looking like a pretty good idea to me right now. I think it would also be a great way to have some accountability. I need someone to say, “Where have you been? We noticed you weren’t at boot camp because we didn’t hear someone crying in the corner.” I need that.
What keeps you motivated? Or are you motivated?
And do you take a multivitamin?
(I’m still feeling guilty about that one.)
