Another year...Still FAT


I'm feeling like such a loser. I tried to drop major pounds before my cruise this past August. I did really well w/ my program--8 weeks. That was it. Then I started floundering. Reading and thinking maybe I should do something else. When that happens you are screwed. NOTHING gets done. Here I am a year later and I am EXACTLY where I was at this time last year. I've had it with myself. One good thing...at least I have NEVER given up on myself. I'm just inconsistent. A FB friend of mine asked us all.."what is the one thing that gets in your way--it's too early, no time, etc" MY ANSWER WAS....ME. Plain and simple. I AM THE ONLY THING GETTING IN MY WAY.

I have made a new plan for 2012. My first rule: DO NOT STRAY FROM THE PLAN. DO NOT RESEARCH, READ, BUY ANY NEW PROGRAMS. I am an e-book junkie. I have them all. I think I have EVERY DVD out there also. P90x...got it. Insanity...got it. Jillian Michaels or Mari Winsor...got it. Name it, I have it.

Here's the plan:

Eating: I am doing my old stand-by Diet Center plan. I lost 60 lbs TWICE with this program. Based on good clean food--fruits, veggies, lean meats. No crap has to be purchased.

Workout: Month One: Firm Express. This lasts 4 weeks. Good for beginners. Will get me started without feeling overwhelmed. 3x per week. Intervals and weight training.

Month Two - Four: Chalene Extreme--90 day weight training. Fabulous program from Beachbody.com

Month 5-7: New Body Pump DVD from beachbody.com

Will post the rest when we get there.

I also joined a challenge on beachbody.com

I promise to post at LEAST once per week. I need a reader out there to please hold me accountable. I'm gonna lay it on the line, pour my guts out and get control of myself. It ain't gonna be pretty. I hope someone will read and join me.
