Work It Out Wednesday - Week 1

Something new around here!  
From now on, most of my Wednesday posts will be about getting my arse back into shape - or at least some sort of update on me and my health.

I am linking up with Shannon at The Family Szem - if you are interested in staying motivated, helping others, or losing weight - make sure you link up too!  

Today is a new beginning for me.  I am starting over.  If you are a long time reader you know that I constantly struggle with losing weight, working out and eating healthy.  I have tried a lot of diets and work outs but basically I give up.  Well this time I am going to start with smaller goals.  

My first goal is...

Working out at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes.  

What I need to do this:

Energy!!  By the time I get home from work, cook/eat dinner and then play with Jude until bedtime I am tired.  I just want to sit on the couch and veg but this isn't healthy for me or my family.  Instead of sitting for an hour and a half after Jude goes to bed I will ride the stationary bike for 30 minutes!  Easy enough right?  

I am hoping it will become a routine!

Updates to follow!!

  1. You can do it!!! We need to start using our stationary bike too!

  2. Good for you! It is a total pain in the butt (literally) at the time, but remember it's only an hour and a half a week total- not bad when you think of it that way!

  3. Once you go to the gym/fit it into your schedule, it becomes easier and easier! I find weekends during O's naptime, or after he's gone to bed throughout the week the best times to go to the gym!

  4. Psst... passed along a Versatile Blogger Award to you. Read my post to see how to claim your badge!! :-)

  5. Good luck! I need to do the same thing...I'm your newest follower from the blog hop. I'd love you to stop by my blog & follow along too!

  6. You may also want to check out any Julian Michaels DVD, they are great. And she has a lot that are only 30 minutes or less. You can also check them out at the library!

  7. I just started the same. On Saturday, I couldn't pry my rings off my fingers during my nail appointment. After a few days of staying true to portion sizes and food types, I can get my rings off again. Jeans are still a bit tight, though. Baby steps, right!?!?

  8. Hi,

  10. I'm a new follower so I don't know your story of weight loss struggle, but I do understand the struggle. It can be difficult. I wish you the best. And I steps.
