Love Your Exercise

I lost a pound this week! I know its not much but its better than nothing. I was very good last week, I exercised everyday except Sunday and Friday. Most of the time I took dance classes. Dance is really my favorite form of exercise! I made sure also to give my all when I dance so by the end of it I was sweating like anything and my face was so red, I looked like a tomato. I think I did level 1 of the 30 day shred once. I'm not doing it everyday anymore but it's one of my exercise options. I even tried swimming once! That was tiring but the thing about swimming is I don't know if i'm doing it right and if I'm really burning calories. Last night, I downloaded 2 videos of Winsor Pilates - the 20-minute workout and the fat burning exercise. In the first video, the people make the exercise look so simple but I already know that the routine will be INTENSE. I'm trying that one out later! The second one is like a dance aero routine with some pilates mat work at the end which looks pretty good too.

Back when I just graduated from college, I was a bit of a gym rat. I was always taking classes there and doing weights. There was a time in my life that I really enjoyed exercising and I want to get that back. The key for me to lose weight is really exercise because as it is, I'm already eating better and less than before. I just really need to be more active. I think that I am slowly getting to the point that I enjoy exercising. I guess I just really had to find that form of exercise I enjoy. It took me awhile to find it! I tried doing these weights exercise routines that I collected from Women's Health but I could never stick to it. I found it boring and I didn't know if I was doing it right and I felt that I didn't sweat enough. I realized I need to be following someone while exercising so in comes the 30-day shred.

I'm 5lbs away from the 120s... 5 lbs!! That sounds easy enough right? I can do this!!!

Can I please be this hot?? I'm going to the beach in 40 days and I want to be confident in my bikini. I have 40 days to lose more weight and find an awesome bikini. For now, the beach is my motivation! After that, the wedding of my cousin wherein I'll be a bridesmaid is my motivation. All her friends are skinny and sexy, I don't want to be the only chubby bridesmaid there!

It's a bit frustrating that when I weighed myself in last Wednesday, I was still 136lbs... My measurements were pretty much the same as well. I really have to become consistent and dedicated in exercising as often as I can. I need to lose weight. I want to be happy in my body and feel good in my clothes. Gosh, I still have so far to go.

I slipped pretty bad last week. Drank a lot during my friend's party last Saturday and I wasn't able to exercise as much... so I gained a pound. Boo. :( I still added it on my sidebar as a reminder that I need to work hard to get to my goal.

I'll be better this week. Just watch me.

PS- I'm cleaning out my closet for stuff to give my tita (aunt) so she can sell on her site for 2nd hand clothes and i'm getting depressed. I was so skinny before. Skirts that were loose on me before are tight now :( It can get really hard keeping up a happy disposition yet feeling fat at the same time. I wish I could fast forward to being sexy and easily fitting in to size 6 jeans. How I wish it was that easy. This isn't an easy journey at all... I have to do this.
