After New Years I cracked down and put a lot of time into meal planning and started working toward my weight watchers goal weight. As I’ve said before (to see my weight loss post click here) it isn’t like I had a lot of weight to lose, but the 10 to 15 pounds that creep up on me when I don’t watch make me feel miserable. A few weeks ago I reached my goal weight and was really excited until I realized that although I had reached goal, I hadn’t done one single thing to tone my body while I was losing the weight. I’m not sure if I thought the stretched tummy from carrying two pregnancies was MaGiCaLlY going to go away with the weight loss or what, but I can assure you…when the clothes come off…it’s still there!
Here’s the GiAnT problem…I HaTe working out. Walking, running, jogging, weight training, stretching, aerobics (do they even do that anymore?), kickboxing, yoga, stair-climbing, etc….I don’t want to do it! Strike that, I don’t even want to think about doing it! I realize that I could continue with my anti-exercise attitude and look good in my clothes, but bathing suit season is coming up and I would LoVe to look good in something other than the tankini with a skirt that I have been wearing since I had my son five years ago.
In comes The Lazy Girls Workout. While searching Pinterest last night I came across a simple workout for BeGiNnErS. It was the first time I thought…Wow, I might actually be able to do this! I’m not making any promises and I’m starting out slow (3 or 4 days a week), but at least it is something! If you are like me and just can’t get motivated to get moving, find something you think you can do in moderation and set a small goal for yourself. Together we can get in shape!
