needing a boost
Sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring about a job is not being super kind to my mental state as well as my waistline. It's pretty dumb really, I've had no excuse not to start working out, after all I'm home all the time, I just haven't felt like I had enough energy to start. Well, except last week, I kinda cracked and did a kickboxing workout to vent some serious frustration, and I ripped my pants. Or rather my thighs rubbing together wore the denim thin enough that any vigorous activity resulted in a humiliating RIIIIIIIIIiiiip! ;p At least it was just me, but still, it was the straw that broke the camel's back. I cried in the shower.
Since the only pants I have left are suffering the soon to be same fate, my honey took me jean shopping (he had to spring it on me, I hate jeans shopping). We had just had a huge lunch and the results were not nice. He really did mean well, he felt bad I was getting so frustrated ;) But it WAS frustrating. I'm short and curvy. After trying on no less than 12 pairs I settled for one that was %50 off because I didn't want to pay full price for jeans that don't fit right. In one style, a 6 would have worked, but the waistline came halfway up my back. In another style, I couldn't even get into a 10. From the same store! ;p Guys have it so easy. This length by this waistline, they don't even have to try things on ;p
Wedding is 213 days away, my dress is an 8 (which translates to a 6 in normal clothing size). I'm already wanting the zipper replaced with a corset back, it'll need a little tweaking, but I want to get in better shape anyway. We still don't know what we're doing for a honeymoon but I'm sure it'll involve a beach and a bathing suit >.<
I figure I need to start out slow, start with yoga and build up to kickass cardio. I'm trying to keep my portions in check, with not so much success. We've been kinda short on funds so getting fresh healthy ingredients hasn't been real easy. We did splurge and get some fruit, and I do try to get the whole grain pasta, but there's a lot of packaged side dishes and he likes to fry a lot. I do what I can with blotting grease or trying a baking technique instead ;p
I know once I start working I'll be up and moving around more, I just need to kick myself in the butt and get moving. I know it'll make me feel better, just for some stupid reason haven't wanted to. Did some work in the garden, that was fun exercise. Kinda glad I don't own a scale though ;p
What do YOU guys do to get yourself actually moving? :)
