Extreme makeover: me edition update

Well, I didn't do so well on the food front, but did do my workouts everyday. I don't mind so much on the food, because staying motivated to workout has always been my biggest challenge. As a result I actually gained back the weight I lost. Some of you may think..."How can you stay motivated if your weight is constantly up and down?"

Well, it's really the healthy challenge. For me the healthiest part of this is the excercise. I've always been a couch potato! I need to stay moving...everyday!!

Amber's question this week is all about the music. I agree!!! I listen to the classics from my youth. It makes me feel younger ;) and stronger..hahaha! So I listen to:
Huey Lewis,
John Mellencamp,
Bruce Springsteen,
The BoDeans,
.38 Special (oh, yeah...southern rock, baby)
Squeeze
Bryan Adams
I look forward to reading what everyone listens to, so I can get a little more with it!!

Staying motivated to work out is one of the hardest parts for me too. Your hard work will pay off in the end. This week Amber's post said getting healthy/eating right/exercising is like ebb and flows. She's so right. Sometimes it's easy to forget that (for me anyway!).

I love all of your music selections. Every single one of them used to be my favorites. I instantly get happy hearing tunes from those artists. Brings back good memories. I can understand why they motivate you!

Much love from NJ,

Obviously I have a tough time staying motivated in the exercise department, but you are doing great!!!! Love your music choices, time to make a stop at iTunes!

Jen said...

Oh I totally forgot about Squeeze! I loved them! and everyone is so right, we all just need to stick with it every week & we'll see progress over time.

Tanielle said...

You are awesome!!!! Working out everyday is soooo great!!! I struggle with that too. It seems I put everyone before me, and at the end of the day I think...duh, you didn't exercise!!

Keep it up!:-)

Vivienne said...

Love Squeeze! Best lyrics!
Keep it up. Losing weight is like the stock market. (Well, what the stock market used to be like) If you look at it too closely it's terrifying. Stand back and look at the overall trend.
Maybe a bad analogy after all.
You'll do great regardless.

I agree that its not just about the numbers, for me a lot of it is in my head. If my head is right then I am on the right track to everything falling in place. Keep up the good attitude.
