Ok, I've lost count how many times I've started and restarted my beach body journey. I first started when I was 29 years old, and 6 weeks out from delivering my 2nd baby, via c-section. I saw AMAZING results using the original Turbo Jam series, and got within 10-15 lbs of my goal weight. I then had another surgery and could not workout for several weeks. We then began the process of
Ok, I've lost count how many times I've started and restarted my beach body journey. I first started when I was 29 years old, and 6 weeks out from delivering my 2nd baby, via c-section. I saw AMAZING results using the original Turbo Jam series, and got within 10-15 lbs of my goal weight. I then had another surgery and could not workout for several weeks. We then began the process of moving overseas, and I never got back into it. Since then, I've tried to start again with TJ, but never could get the same fire back as I did after having my daughter. I tried Slim in 6, but something was wrong in my form and couldn't do it without major back pain afterwards.
Earlier this spring, I started running for the first time ever. I trained for 9 weeks straight, and ran my first 5K race on July 4th. However, I gained weight during this time, and my clothes started getting tighter. After the race, I got sick for nearly 3 weeks. Bonus of that is that I lost 7 lbs. Downside, I've not run since the race!!
So, here I am, 30 years old, 191 lbs (only time I've ever been this weight is around my 8th month of pregnancy). I hate where I am, the way I feel, the way I look, my lack of energy. I desperately want to change and get back down to a healthy weight. My ulitmate goal is around 140 lbs, but for now, I'd be happy to see 180 or 170. My dilemma is that I can't seem to find the motivation to do ANYTHING. I lay there at night thinking that tomorrow is the day. I'll start, I"ll be committed, etc. Then I wake up and just cant' bring myself to do it.
I think it's a largely spiritual issue for me. When I feel I am where I am meant to be spriritually, walking closely with the Lord, I see a difference hugely in every aspect of my life. However, I've been at a very spiritually dry point in my life for a long time now, and have the same struggle in getting back into a healthy spiritual routine as well.
So, there you go. Not sure if I"m going ot start again with SI6 or TJ, but I wnat to start with SOMETHING, so here I am.
