Balance is everything and writing it all down helps a lot. I have the same DVD. Did it once and loved it...broke my toe the next day and need to get back to it (amazing how quickly you can lose a good exercise habit).


In today's world, our bodies still require the complete balance of pure nutrients and energy provided by live whole foods. The modern demands of our fast-paced world have led to the processing of food to the point of non-nutrition. Unlock the secret code to discover the real truth about Health and Nutrition.


This is so perfect. And serendipitous. I just signed up again today for SparkPeople and set new goals. We can encourage each other!
My exercise remains the same, but my wardrobe would honestly double if I lost 10 pounds. Instead of buying new clothes, I need to cut back on crap (Peanut M&Ms, bagels, alcohol) and get my booty back in my jeans.
I'm cheering for you.


Very inspiring post. It's ironic that I do the health thing most of the time, have pretty positive thoughts which I think is just as important to health but where I lack is exercise. I blame it on the cold where I live but I think it is my lack of inner energy. My mind is energetic and usually is spinning madly most of the time. But my body follows along slowly. I'm also a lazy exerciser where I like my form of exerciser to be in the same house. I've tried the gym but it is too much trouble. We are borrowing a house for 9 days and I have been doing laps every day in their pool. Now if only I had one of those in my back yard at home...Good luck on your goal and I look forward to reading about your progress. I do agree that balance is everything.


Good luck with your challenge. The Shred video that you described sounds like a good one. I keep an exercise log and find that it really keeps me accountable.


I stumbled onto your blog recently and I love it! I too am preparing for a big shape up that has been long over due. Good luck to you!


I felt this way about a year and a half ago and I decided that I needed to take better care of myself and I lost over 35 pounds with not one day spent in the gym or with a video! You have to decide what is wrong. Are you eating bad foods or not getting exercise or both? For me, I ate great but I got almost no exercise at all.

Things that helped (& still help) me.
Eat a yummy desert once a week (total elimination of yummy foods will never work).

Park in the back of the parking lot, take the stairs, and play on the playground with your kids instead of sitting on the bench.

I really tried to look at how active my life is overall (not organized exercise, which I HATE) and I aimed to increase it all over the place.

Also try to find protein other then meat. Beans and nuts are a great option that I eat at lunch instead of meat (which is expensive and fattening).

I really hope that you do well. Good luck!
