Motivation, and all the different things I like, and hate about workingout

Alright Annie,

We apparently suck at life! I know that’s harsh, but if you ever want to stop being a lazy fat a** you need to try! Our motivation to workout was extremely lacking last week, you allowed yourself to talk you out of doing something that is difficult and not even close to fun-yet and because of that nothing has changed, we haven’t lost anything because we haven’t in any work.

Lets try this again, same workout schedule but nix some of the days for at least the first week, at least we did good on the diet, but seriousy need to try and stay more motivated when it comes to workingout. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

Remember:

“For I can do all things through God who gives me strength.” -Philippians 4:13

“It is what we trust in, but don’t yet see that keeps us going.” -2 Corinthians 5:7

We can do this because “if God is for us, who can be against us?” -Romans 8:31b

“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” -Colossians 3:17

I love you, I’m sorry that I’m so tough on you, but you will thank me in the end, I promise! :-*

Alright Annie, today’s the day. It is officially time to take those nasty before pictures and start working out. I know that you hate working out, and I do mean HATE, but this was your idea remember? You were the one who wanted to be healthy and fit so that you could enjoy your life more, right?

Okay so lets make a schedule that we can try to stick to, and lets give a specific list of things that we can substitute incase we don’t want to do the one specified.

Today is day one, and it is Monday, so we should pick something that we know that we enjoy: P90X Core Synergistics! (WooHoo!) -Sorry I figured that the extra excitement would keep you motivated. I have also notified your social networks (evil laugh: Muahahahaha!). Don’t hate me, having everyone know will help keep you more motivated than if just Team Beachbody knows, and you know it!

Lets try this for at least a month if not longer, then we will discuss changing things up a little. : )

Schedual:

Sunday: CoreRhythms-Any & 30 mins hardcore walking/jogging    ALT: Keep the walking/jogging & Taebo-Any OR P90X-ABRipperX

Monday: P90X-Core Synergistics    ALT: Taebo-Bootcamp OR CoreRhythms-Any

Tuesday: P90X-Shoulders & Arms    ALT: 45mins of Free Weights & 20mins jogging

Wednesday: Taebo-Celebfit Cardio    ALT: P90X-CardioX OR CoreRhythms-LatinCardio

Thursday: P90X-X Stretch     ALT: 30mins of hard core walking/jogging & TaiChi

Friday: P90X-Legs&Back    ALT:Taebo-Any OR P90X-KenpoX OR CoreRhythms-Any

Saturday: Yoga & 30mins hardcore walking/jogging ALT: Keep the walking/jogging & TaiChi OR Qigong

You can do this! I love ya,

Me

P.S. I know that you really hate cardio, but it is necessary to any weightloss regime

Okay Annie, this past year has been tough and the year before wasn’t all that easy either, however it is no excuse for how far you have let yourself go. It is time to do something if you expect anything to happen in your life! The one thing that you have control over is yourself, you are the only person who decides how much you eat and how active you keep yourself. Because of this you are the only person who can turn what has become around into what will be.

Alright, now that all being said, lets start with what we know. Being 5’9″ you should weigh somewhere between 150 and 170lbs, currently we are at 242lbs, which means that we are between 70 and 90lbs overweight. This as you know puts unneeded pressure on your joints and increases your risk for many diseases/health issues, a few of which we may already be dealing with. I know that there are other factors of concern such as:

– measurements (waist @ bellybutton 43″, bust under 38″, bust over 41″, neck 14″, R bicep 15 1/2″, R wrist 7″, R thigh 28″, R calf 17 1/2″, R ankle 11″, L bicep 15″, L wrist 6 1/2″, L thigh 27 1/2″, L calf 16″, L ankle 10″, waist 46″, hips/booty 49 1/2″), BMI and blood pressure and cholestorol, the last three of which I have no idea what the values are. However, I think that our major concern right now should be mainly the weight issue.

I also know that many times you have led yourself to believe that your size was just bad genetics, now while some of that may be true, you also owe it to yourself to attempt a try at getting healthy and in shape. I want you to try your best to find something and/or someone that will motivate you to do your absolute best and make your workouts and diet really count.

Okay, so lets work on a plan of action.

Step one: Good workout routine. I’m thinking a combination of different things to keep us motivated and most important to deter boredom

-P90XLean, some walking, maybe some jumprope, swimming, taebo, core rhythms dance videos, yoga, etc.

Step two: A reasonable diet. It should be more than just cutting out junk food and eating better, but I also feel that it is counterproductive to forbid certain foods, and instead will maybe just limit the intake of whatever it is that we are craving.

Step three: Stay motivated, take pictures of things that motivate you, and take pictures of your progress. It may also help to monitor weekly your weight, and measurements just to show that what you are doing is making a difference.

Okay sweetie, that’s it for now, goodluck and Godspeed : )
