Self-pity induced motivation

I’m in full swing for my body-reshaping! I am not calling it diet because that’s a negative term! As a marketer, you learn to take these negative terms out of your vocabulary.  I am not on a diet, I am not trying to slim up.  I am BODY-RE-SHAPING!

P7081152 Work out’s been going quite good so far.  We went to a fitness assessment on Tuesday.  All I can say is, I need a lot of work.   I want to get fit, but not enough to pay 69.99 every week, but I do want it.  I’ve been going to the gym pretty consistently.  I start with a 20 minute cardio work out on the eliptical: 5 min warm up, 3 minutes of fast, 2 minutes of slow etc. etc. and followed by a 5 minute cool down.  Just so my heart doesn’t explode, I then do my weight/resistance/muscle training.  Whatever you call it.  I work with moderate weights (30-70 lbs depending on the muscle) about 3 reps of 5.  Probably not enough.  I also do some situps, some body bend down thingy during this time too.  I follow it with another 20 minute on the treadmill, 5 min warm up, 3 minute fast, 2 minutes slow etc etc. and a cool down.

Yesterday I was motivated and even swam 5 laps in the pool too.  Today, I woke up feeling a tad like something shot everyone of my muscles but I’m still full of energy.  Good thing ♥ ♥ I wanted to go back today, but Marc advised me to take it easy and do pilates and a walk instead.  Deal. 

I found this website that is basically a free trainer.  Hence the name stupid. It can get you a personalized fitness plan complete with what machines you should do on what days as well as  nutrition plan.  Check it out 🙂

Any fitness people around? Am i doing anything wrong? What should I modify?  Keep in mind, I am trying to lose weight and tone my body.

Thanks and Much ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    something i should be doing… but i’m not disciplined enough. i love my food too much. hahaha! ;P

  2. Sounds good to me. I’m not an expert or anything, but I figure as long as you’re moving around and burning more calories than you used to (while eating the same or less), you’ll lose weight. Bonus if you tone your muscles at the same time.

    I usually enjoy going to the gym. It helps to have really good music or podcasts to listen to while doing cardio.
