By a show of hands, who's WAY out of shape right now? Like, way more than usual. Way past the point of blaming these tight pants on a mere bloating incident. *slowly raises hand*
GUYS. True story alert. Yesterday, at work, I walked myself right on over to Target to buy a new pair of black pants. To change into. At work. because the pair I wore to work were so tight I couldn't breathe. This is a problem.
I'm not going to commit to yet another diet and exercise routine because I can't stand to let myself down again. That's where you guys come in. Is there anyway, dearest friends who art fitter than I, that we could start some accountability group or something? Can we face time each other at the gym so we actually do our workouts? Google Hangout while we sweat our butts off to blogilates? Build workout playlists for each other? Challenge one another to a certain mileage goal or healthy breakfast every morning for a week? Commit to a certain length of time each day we'll walk our dogs? Can we discuss our goals for the month, the week, the day and then share successes and ... failures (as they will be many)? Encourage each other, share workout resources, recipes, and tips that work for us? SOMETHING??!
If we started in the first week of September, we'd have 12 weeks until Thanksgiving. Not that any of you lovely people needs to lose any weight, but I've heard a pound of weight loss per week is fairly healthy, so by Thanksgiving, we could be -12 lbs. Anybody interested?? We can put money on it, if that motivates you / keeps you engaged, but I certainly don't think that has to be part of it.
Some thing has got to change. I'm working with a personal trainer (and I love it!!), but 2 hours of exercise a week and all the beer and french fries just aren't cutting it. Anybody out there willing to save me?!
