I've been reading along with Sarah of Venus Trapped In Mars and her Operation Get Fit posts. Did you all know home girl is down 12 pounds. I think that is so fantastic!
Now I'm sure some of you will look at pictures of me on the blog, and thing...umm Whitney? You? You're trying to lose weight?
Well yes and no. I don't really have an issue with my weight. I have an issue with my fitness level. I am the worst kind of skinny. I am 'skinny-fat'. My clothes still fit, for the most part, but they are getting a little uncomfortable. I still look slender, but things are wobbling and jiggling all over the place where they never used to. Even Boomer has been kind enough to point out my wobbly bits.
My issue is the getting started. I pin all these great bodies on pinterest, and I reblog all these amazing fit women on tumblr...but how do I get there.
I know I eat a lot of crap, but on the flip side of that, I'm allergic to a crazy amount of fruits and some veggies. I also just really love bread guys. And fried things. And cheese.
I also have access to a gym at my complex, as well as at my job... I just have no clue where to start!!!
I mean I can hop onto the elliptical at work for 30 minutes of my lunch...but what is that really going to improve if I want to get a really toned body. I know I need to lift, but how much and how????? I really just want a trainer to yell at me and tell me what to do.
This is turning into a ramble.
Well this week I'm going to try and start small. I'm going grocery shopping and I'll buy the fruits I KNOW I'm not allergic too and work on some breakfast smoothies and snacks for work. (Mid afternoon snacks are killer for me.) I'm also going to work on packing lunch everyday so I'm not tempted by the yummy offerings at the work cafeteria. I will also try the elliptical a few days this week....I mean. I have to start somewhere right?
