Is anybody dieting? Getting that beach bod?
I'm really needing to diet right and eat healthy. Work out, etc.
I'm not saying I need to LOSE weight, I just want to get in shape, tone up etc.
But when do I have time?
How about you guys? Tried anything that works? Motivation?
I am miserable at restrictive diets, and I'm completely fine with that because it's boring. It's sort of like "Look, we made this delicious espresso fudge ice cream, but you can't eat it! Because it has sugar and oil. And you'll 'get fat.'" It's torture, and there's no point in tormenting yourself if you're not going to die from eating something. Mentally, it sort of makes you unhappy and more negative. Yuck.
But I also want to tone up. I might find something dancey, since I need better coordination than get up -> fall over -> trip over everything.
I second myfitnesspal.com
I absolutely love it!
I feel like I'm usually pretty good about staying healthy, but this winter I really slacked off, so now I'm in "Shelly get healthy" mode. I've been working out a lot, and monitoring what I eat. It's been going on about a month now, so I'm starting to feel better, but I still have my work cut out for me. I'm just frustrated with myself that I let it get this bad.
Warm weather usually motivates me to exercise because you can't hide under layers of clothing when it's warm out. I run outside and do some toning exercises at home.
I've also found group fitness classes to be an AMAZING motivator! Having a set-time class to go to helps you maintain a schedule and working out with other people takes away the stress of working out because everyone's suffering through the same workout together haha.
Story of my life, sometimes I think it prolly would be better if I just became over weight so then I would be forced to work out and start eating healthier again.
Since I don't realllllly need to lose weight, I feel like "I can do it tomorrow"...blah, I need to stop eating nutella and burger king for lunch and dinner and seriously shape up for the summer.
