My other wtf project began on a Thursday and did well so I will begin the next on the same day of the week. I was a gym rat before my lo (little one) trying to get fit before pregnancy (didn't happen as I thought I had plenty of time) so I'm not foreign to exercise. However, gym membership cancelled as one of my happy tradeoffs so I may stay at home, my discipline for exercising at home, well lacks. Therefore I thought adding this as a wtf project I will be more motivated to exercise. The blogging makes me feel more accountable.
So today was day 1 of a 9 week program, however I'm just posting the 30 days as I'm sure I will stick with it...although the previous sentence makes believe I should revisit aforementioned statement. I've used this before pregnancy but let me tell you the twenty minutes on easy setting really made me want to throw up. It was tough. So tough, tomorrow will be rest day switching it with Saturday's rest day. I told dh (dear husband) we should w-a-l-k (have to spell it in my house because the dog knows that word and will go crazy thinking she gets to go) tomorrow.
I can appreciate those weight loss bloggers that will actually take a pic of the scale or disclose their weight. I won't. Marilu Henner was on Dr. Oz once and while he was introducing her with spectacular accolades he even included, the horror...that she once weighed 174lbs! *major face palm I needed to borrow an extra palm* 174lbs! Really now. I would've been more impressed if he had chosen to say she was 30lbs overweight. There are a lot of women weighing 174lbs some overweight and some that's their normal weight. Ugh such a negative stigma with numbers on the scale and jean size.
Yes I can see the worth of women touting their numbers maybe to suppress this adverse reaction to just numbers, however at the same time I think maybe just leaving it out all together may also help. Instead focus on the 'journey' and the success. My only numbers will be of loss or gain. For those women that will even take before pics- wow such bravery, right now I'm working on discipline...courage may be next!
