So now that I’ve bared my stats, talked about Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach (I am on week 3 and I have not missed a lesson!), and shown off some badass workout pics, it’s time to put up or shut up when it comes to moving my body. This week I am committing to a real training schedule. Yep it feels like I’m about to step into the ring with Boxing Gold Medalist Claressa Shields. I’m not training to box...yet. I am training to make a go of this weight loss goal, though.
Where do I start?
I start small with taking the stairs and walking when I can.
I start with using my standing desk at work for actually standing.
I start with stretching into my morning even if it’s just for 5 minutes.
I build by taking a few minutes to foam roll before I go to sleep. I build on the fact that I physically train once a week with Shannon. I don’t always want to show up at 8am, but I am committing to showing up for me.
I build on showing up by showing up two more times beyond that. And two more times then another two more...
Lather, rinse, repeat. You get the idea. This start list is a roadmap, but I am clear on the fact that it’s impossible to just jump right on it and instantly do all of these things all at the same time. So, this is where you reader folks come in. You see, this public accountability is actually a pretty effective motivator for me. The more I write and post, the more feedback I get. The more feedback I get, the more motivated I am to make sure I don’t embarrass myself.
As of this post, I have one workout down (thanks for upping the ante on that downward dog to push-up negative, Shannon) and two more to go for this week. That’s my sole focus until my next installment. Three strength workouts per week for the next couple of weeks. I’ll be posting more at @wholehedonist IG to keep me honest. Send distilled water, high fives, and green smoothies to make sure I get it done!
