Working out!

So, I need some motivation to work out. In a perfect world knowing that I would be healthy and fit would be enough. But I'll be honest, it isn't really.

So instead I joined a weight loss competition! What? Yep totally. Now I have money and competition as my motivators! OOhhh yeah!

I suffer from what I call "Little Sister Syndrome" which is being super competitive and needing to be better than someone else, so this should be perfect for me. I mean getting healthy and fit is a great motivator all by its self, I mean at least it should be, but to be honest the money is seriously going to help!

I'm gonna be serious with you here. I won't post my weight, but I will keep you all abreast of my loss and my journey. I know weigh loss is a huge topic so maybe we will find some stuff that works!

Being accountable.

We all need to be accountable for the things in our life. We have been going through a tough transition in our lives and it is really hard to deal with. I have been dealing with a lot and I have had depression. With this depression I have let myself go and when I stepped on the scale the other day I almost cried. I have never been this heavy in my life. But crying doesn't fix things and I remembered the old quote (that I can't source sorry) "You don't drown by falling in water, you drown by staying there." It made me thing. Crying is not going to fix this problem, only I can fix this problem.
Diet and exercise baby.

It isn't going to be easy, and I am going to need motivation, but I am going to do it. I do not want to be this overweight unhappy person. My goal is not to be stick thin, my goal is to be healthy- which is something that I am not at this weight.

I am joining a weightloss group that charges by the pound if I loose weight, and the winner gets a pot of money at the end (how is that for added motivation?) Compition and money, I think I've got this. I am also making myself accountable to my readers. I know I have posted about weight loss before, and now I am getting serious about it. My diet is decent but it is by no means perfect and after our extra long winter this year I am not sure if I remember what exercise is like outside of the house, but I just got a new bike trailer for the little one and we are going to hit the roads. We have also been taking a lot of walks.

One thing that is esential to me is music. What are some of your favorite workout tunes? Is there a special one that you use to get yourself over that "hump" when you start to get tired?
