OK! Motivation!

Sunday, September 04, 2011

I spent all of the afternoon reading posts on my SparkTeams and other realated nutritional and fitness articles, I am ready for this!

I said on a forum that my personnal challenge for the next week is to replace all binging eating by water! Aye :)

I also have some kind of a plan for my gym goals.. I don't know if this will be realistic for the first week as i haven't excercise in a long time.. but I will go 6 days per week, cardio everyday and strenght every other day with saturday off, to relax.

What I think I'll do (or try to see if it works) for my cardio sessions is, on strenght days i'll just do my normal 30 mins of cardio, mid to hard intensity and on the day where I only do cardio i'll try that "Peak 8" Mercola is raving about. I wonder if it's too hard for me, but it looks like a nice challenge and an effective one, too.

I'm wondering if it's too much exercise too, I don't think so because I know my body really needs it and I really want to see the pounds go down. I'll be careful with what I eat as in: no junk! smaller portions! water! sensitive snacks! Do you think i'm pushing myself here?

I also posted a comment on Eating Clean about how much fructose is too much fructose? Hope someone with knowledge about the subject will answer..

That's about it, for now.

    To stay motivated, you've got to do something you like. I have been on 6days/week programme for the last 2 yrs with breaks in between. 6 days a week is not easy.

    If you commit, let say for a month, or 60 days, or any length of time that you think you are going to stick with, it will do 2 things:
    * feeling of accomplishment
    * better health

    Go at your own pace, but never stop.

    Have a great fall!

    When I started exercising, I was doing 5 days per week. After a month, I realized that my body is telling me it's too much. It will be the same thing for you - if it's too much, your body will tell you.

    You can do it! First of all, try to do a routine, then when you know you'll be able to do it mix it up and have fun!

    Your body will let you know if it's too much. But it doesn't sound it, just ease yourself into it =-)
    It's hard when you start a new diet/exercise routine, if you're anything like me, I get all gung ho and charge in headfirst and either burn myself out quickly or get hurt lol

    Good luck!
