The other day I got up and decided I just didn't want to wear my compression shorts under my shorts. I just wanted to let it all hang out as I call it. Sometimes I get so tired of wearing compression short to hold the junk in the trunk in .
So when I got to the gym I thought I would hit the elliptical and get warmed up and than do a DVD. When I got done with the elliptical, I decided to do the Last Chance Workout DVD. I totally forgot that I didn't wear my spandex as I call my compression shorts and that the Last Chance Workout has some jumping in it. It's not that I don't like to do jumping jack or jumping stuff, but as I said early I didn't wear my spandex, because I just wanted to let it all hang out today.
Thank Goodness, I was the only one in the gym that morning. The first circuit of course called for jumping jack along with some other jumping exercises. As I started to do the jumping jacks I hear this clapping going on behind me, than I remembered why I wear spandex to the gym. My ass pardon my french and thighs were literally clapping together for me every time I did a jumping jack. That is what I get for being a yo-yo dieter most of my life. I've literally lost and gained the same 80 to 100 lbs most of my life. I wish I could sit here and say I wont every gain those 80 to 100 lbs back, but I've learned never to say never .
Now, I'm trying to decide what I can do to keep me motivated for 2012. It's not written in stone yet, but I'm seriously thinking about running an out of state marathon. Most people that know me know I don't like to travel or at least not more than 6 to 8 hours away. I really am a home body. Traveling tends to throw me way off of my daily routine. That means my eating habits are not good and I get lazy and don't want to workout on vacation, so I'm really not a fan of vacationing.
There are two other girls in Earlham that are trying to do a marathon in every state. They have decided to do the Little Rock Marathon in Arkansas on March 4. They have asked my running partner and I to go with them. To be honest going out of state to do a marathon is really taking me out of my comfort zone again.. I also know that the closer it gets the more my anxiety level will be rising. One thing I do know is that God is always with me and through him I'm capable of doing anything.
What is going to keep you motivated for 2012?
HAVE you lost and gained the same pounds over and over?
