(im' going to ramble for awhile but mostly you can just post 'you can do it!' and that's about it, haha!) well i know in theory that to change your life you should change your workout and your eating habits but try as i might...i just don't think i can fully change my eating habits (although i did give up burgers, cheeseburgers and fried chicken...which was tough!) and part of the problem is my lovely bf is an enabler even when he doesn't mean to be because we love the same foods (pasta, pizza, etc etc..ice cream!!) and since we trade off making dinner (and are rather poor) we eat cheap and easy food that isn't always very good for you. about 6 months ago i got heavily into rock climbing and was going twice a week but then it became financially impossible...until about three days ago. so i'm getting back into climbing and ideally back into yoga. and i am hoping that with everyone else in this subforum working their bums off i can too! plus my job has an in-house gym and i've never used it and even just 45 minutes on the bike or treadmill would make a huge difference (i think) than the nothing i currently do. it is just frustrating because i can never seem to work exercise into my schedule, i feel like it's just impossible! there are things i need to do 3x a week and maybe i should just get off my lazy bum and start working out those other 4 days. or using the gym here esp snice it's free! so this is my plan! (starting tomorrow because i don't have any workout clothes and don't want to get my nice skirt and shirt all sweaty) no i changed my mind...i'll go home, change my clothes and tehn go to a yoga class. it's a long commute but i will do it! workout in my company gym 2-3x a week, climb 2x a week (and bring it up to 3x) and ideally throw in a yoga/pilates class (this is the tough one since the classes are expensive and rather out of the way!) whenever possible. i just am not happy with the way i look, i am rather pleased with my overall shape but i need lots of toning. rock climbing is helping loads but i think i just lack motivation. why can't there be motivational pills to make you awnt to work out. but that's the thing...i do want to work out i just don't want to travel to and from my workout place of choice. i've just tried so many different kinds of exercises and struggled consistently because i have asthma that gets triggered if i try to run or get out of breath in any way and it's so frustrating!!! okay i rambled a lot but i just needed to set out a plan. i am going to change and hopefully start to like the person in the mirror instead of wanting to avoid mirrors at all costs. yeah. sorry i rambled i couldn't help it.
