I feel as if I may have had a breakthrough. Last year at this time, I had such high hopes for 2010. I made a weekly, monthly and year plan for weight loss and fitness. I had things planned out months in advance. I was ready to tackle the fitness side me of wanting to come out and hoping the weight loss would happen. And then it was April.
My whole world was shattered in a 5 minute conversation. How could it be possible that he was gone? How in the world did this happen? I had JUST talked to him! We were supposed to go to the library, relax during the afternoon, how could my DAD be gone?
Ever since that happened, I have had major issues with planning. Major. I always had this thought in the back of my mind; “why plan, who knows what will happen?” So, I stopped making plans for the future. I was reading yesterday about everyone’s goals and plans for the year and I just couldn’t do it. I thought about this a lot yesterday.
Why am I so scared? I can’t be afraid to plan for the future.
It’s true. You never know what will happen, no one does, but I can still plan for the future and get excited about things to happen again. For one thing, I know my Dad would be devastated to see my like this and I don’t want to disappoint him.
And then I did it, I made a fitness plan.
And I am going to share it, because I want to be accountable to someone other than myself. Over the past couple of years I have purchased various workout DVD systems. Each one comes with a 90 day (except 1) program to follow. Two of them I have started 5 million times this year, but after a few days I stop and never go back. The other 2 systems I’ve only opened the package. So, I’m starting at the beginning.
Doing each system from start to finish. My 4 systems: Turbo Jam, ChaLEAN Extreme, Turbo Fire and P90X.
I’m starting with Turbo Jam and I started it yesterday. Part of starting a new program is doing the starting measurements. Again, because I want to be accountable to someone other than myself, I am posting my starting measurements right now.
Turbo Jam – Day 1 Measurements
Left Thigh: 23″
Right Thigh: 23″
Left Bicep: 14.5″
Right Bicep: 14.5″
I will do the same measurements every 30 days.
So, there it is. While I don’t know what the future holds, I’m still going to plan for the best and make 2011 the year I know it can be!
