No Sugar Coating....

This morning, the scale read 138.8. As far as healthy living, working out and getting to the "goal weight" goes...I have been slacking. I could use the car theft as an excuse. However, I won't. I haven't had the motivation to do anything. My size 4 jeans still fit, although too snug for my liking. I have a few things I am thinking of doing:

  1. Training for a half marathon at the end of April.
  2. LiveFit program. 
  3. Focusing on solely losing the weight and getting to my goal with cardio, weights and Jillian Michael's. 
I am always torn, especially of late, as to what I want to do.

I don't love running like I used to, but I still like it. I just hate going head on and having to work back up to "where I was before". I was averaging 9:30 miles or better. When I started, it took me 15 minutes to run/walk a mile. Now, I run a mile in 10:30ish and I always feel defeated. Ummm...hello self....maybe you should run more than 2 days a month. I have decided not to beat myself up about it because I am far better than where I started in 2008, right?

I have seen amazing results from the LiveFit program on other blogs and it really inspires me. I have always been interested in doing a "body building" type of program. Growing up, my dad and uncles were really big into body building, they even competed. I guess I just get concerned that after phase one(NO CARDIO), I would forget how to do cardio (haha). Really though, it is the fear of the weight room and the people in it that actually know what they are doing. I hate looking like I don't know what I am doing. I just need to get over that fear!

I don't necessarily feel like focusing on just weight loss is beneficial to me. I am small and carry my weight well. I think toning up is more of the way I should go, rather than killing myself over the number on the scale. However, cardio and the Ripped In 30 DVD, should make me a lean little machine.

Ahhh.....Decisions, decisions!

Any thoughts?

Catch me up on you! I miss my blogging friends! I still read everyone's blogs, but haven't been commenting much.


  1. OMG OMG OMG!! Do the LiveFit with me! I literally just printed out the workout logs like 2 hours ago.

    Pretty please... I need someone to help keep me accountable (and competitive?).

    You and I are VERY similar in weight and height (if I remember correctly we're both pretty petite) and it would be amazing to see how we do. Plus we both have two dogs! Just had to throw that last similarity in there.

    Let me know!

    1. I am down!! When are you planning on starting? I just bought a printer to print out the workout logs.

  2. LiveFit tomorrow!! Let's do this, girl!

    By the way, I tagged you on my blog today so please check it out if you have a chance. I really enjoy your blog so wanted to point my readers in your direction.
