Happy New Year everyone! May 2019 bring you everything your little hearts desire.
Today was my first day back to work after 10 glorious days off. I didn’t go far. My only goals were to catch up on my sleep and to kick start a new healthy routine.
I did some research on body types, metabolism, eating and exercise. Long story short, there are three body types. They are: ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph. Each comes with it’s own unique work out and food regimen.
Was it an eye opener? Hell yes. And no. Being an endomorph, there are certain things I’ve always just kind of “felt” in my body. One of them is long periods of high intensity workouts are just not for me. So now that I’m armed with all this knowledge, I am so pumped to work out again. I don’t feel guilty for not killing myself on the treadmill any longer.
While on vacation I averaged about 3 times per week at the gym and I loved every second of it. I plan on going a lot more, too. Like my son said, “Mom, you’re single – you can live at the gym if you want.” He’s right, and I just might. Slow and steady will win this race. I’m more motivated now that I have been since I began this ridiculous “non weight loss” thing. Time to make it happen.
If I can average one pound per week, I will be able to lose a total of 50 by September.
So my new mantra – bored? to the gym. Falling asleep on the sofa? – to the gym. Broke? – to the gym. Want to meet new people? – to the gym.
So, wish me luck. I know I sound like a broken record, but there’s something different in the air this time around.
Here is an honest start – my weigh in. I am 3 pounds heavier due to the workouts, but it will even itself out. This always happens, but this time I’m not letting it discourage me.
