I woke up early this morning to do a workout I haven't tried yet for the P90X program. I have been liking what I have been doing so much, I almost forgot there were DVDs I haven't even looked at! I read on a web site that the Core Synergistic workout was really hard, so I was looking forward to trying it.
I popped in the DVD and it will full of push ups, planks and mountain climbers. I haven't done any of those for a while, so it was a great work out! I was working hard and it showed in my calories burned!
I never thought of myself as "fat". I knew I was out of shape, but to tell you the truth I didn't care. I was the chubby kid, always have been. I really thought that was just the way I am. I didn't work out in high school. I tried Cross Country one year and finished last every single race, besides once because someone else didn't finish.
I went to college and did the opposite from taking care of myself. I ate fattening sorority food and drank... A LOT. I came out even "chubbier".
Around November, I don't know why, but I can only explain it as a "wake up call". I seriously woke up one day and realized I didn't want to be like this my whole life. So I started working out. I started using the elliptical for 20 minutes and was barely being able to make it.
Now, I am working out almost every day and obsessed with making myself as fit as possible.
Since then, I've lost about 45 pounds and 4 jean sizes. I feel phenomenal!
You'll be able to read my frustrations and accomplishments. And hopefully I can help to motivate you too!
Welcome to the wonderful world of being physically fit!
