Say A Little Prayer For Meeeeee....Forever and eva....
I've started going back to the gym this last week. I'm not going to lie, I didn't go this weekend. I thought about it. Instead I used the time to eat up all the frozen burritos in my freezer and throw away all the candy I still had in my pantry from Easter. I STILL had candy from Easter. How proud are you? Plus I helped my mother with yard work so I know that counted for some calorie burnage. I didn't want to blog last week and be all "Hey look at me! I'm a superstar! I went to the gym one time!" so I figured I'd give it a few times to make sure it stuck. Pretty sure it stuck.
The truth is, it's down to crunch time. Candace's wedding is in exactly 8 weeks. That's the perfect amount of time I need to tighten it up. I don't even so much care about my weight. My BMI is "normal" so really, I don't care about that. I just care about what I see in the mirror. Granted, my fat is now tanned fat so it doesn't look as bad but it's still there. I want to be able to shop for a dress without the guilt and hassle of having to find a certain dress to hide my belly. Also, I'm moving to another state in about 3 months and I don't want to pull in looking like a slob. I know absolutely nobody where I'm going and I'm going to need more than my "great personality" to rely on when meeting new peeps.
I've got a pretty strong play list which is very motivating. In fact, tonight I was just staring at the clock on the face of the treadmill just thinking to myself that I needed to stop soon because I just couldn't handle much more when a song came on and I swear to you, I ran for 10 more minutes! As long as there is something on that makes me want to shake my ass, I'm golden. I'd appreciate any suggestions. What do you guys listen to while you work out? I usually stick to pop or hip hop. Anything that makes me want to shake it is perfect.
Also, I'm just going to come out and say it, I need your guys' comments. Seriously. Nothing is more motivating than telling you guys that I'm going to do something and then having to follow through. You'd think that I could just get in shape for myself but I'm just not that type of person. I need to have a REASON or purpose for it. So, PLEASE comment. Yes, that's me begging. Pretty please.
I'll leave you with the song that came on that motivated me to keep running. It seriously took everything I had not to look like the lobster hands guy in My Best Friends Wedding (Look for him around the 1:48 mark)while I was on the treadmill at the end of the song. Those of you who read this and my other blog will think I'm obsessed with this song. Truth is, I am. It's got the perfect running beat for my short little legs. And I'm shallow. I wanna wear daisy dukes with a bikini top. Don't judge.
