this losing weight thing is hard. i don’t enjoy exercising. i know it’s good for me, it will help my arthritis and i need to do it, but it’s not exactly what i would call fun. i would much rather be scrapbooking than riding our stationary bike.
it is fun, though, to see my muscles growing. i wish i could see a difference in the rest of my body from the cardio i’m doing. joe says it takes time, but it’s already been a couple of weeks, and i’m ready to see results! i hate waiting, and i hate how slow of a process this is going to be, especially when my clothes still feel like they’re getting tighter and tighter, which joe says is all in my head.
i joined sparks people yesterday. it’s a pretty cool site where you log what you eat and how much cardio you do, and it tells you how many calories you took in and how many you expended in exercise. it also tells you what your calorie range is and how many calories you need to burn through cardio each week. i’ve actually gotten kind of addicted to it. for those of you who also are trying to lose weight or get in shape, it’s definitely worth checking out.
there’s one thing that’s keeping me going: the closet in our spare room filled with my size six and size four skirts and pants. i really want to fit into those again, so that’s my motivation right now. and, of course, the fact that losing a lot of weight will be a very good excuse to go on a shopping spree. joe better start saving his money! 🙂
