Time for Change
So, the other day I was watching an episode of Deal or No Deal (as ya do!), and I was inspired by the contestant (who eventually got a bit too greedy, didn't accept an amazing offer of £60,000 and went home with just 1p!!) who had turned her life around by losing weight. I don't know exactly how much weight she lost, but it gave me a little nudge to let me remember what I'm aiming for, which is the big 3-0! I still have over a year to go, but the longer I leave it, the harder the challenge gets.
I started thinking about the success that I'd had with my 30 Day Workout Challenge on this very blog. The motivation from being reminded by my own blog posts, to do a work out was amazing, and I really wanted to do that again. But, I don't really want to bog my blog down yet again, doing that. I thought about setting my alarm to remind me to do a work out, but then I sat and thought: but what would I actually do? And that is when I grasped my problem:
I never know what kind of work out to do, I end up doing things randomly and my brain gets bored and thus I stop doing anything at all. And if I'm honest, the idea of setting up the TV and PS2 every time I want to do a workout just seems like too much hassle. It's the same principle as to why I'm more likely to play a game on my PSP than on the PS2!! I want something that I can use right here, right now, where ever I am at that very moment, without having to go into a specific area, if that makes sense.
What to Do...??
I've tried using fitness and weight loss apps on my Android phone in the past, but all they've ever done for me is count the number of calories in my food (well, it actually asks me to input how many calories there are for it, and if it doesn't know, then how am I supposed to??), and track my work outs.
What I need is something that tells me exactly what to do. Okay, so maybe this makes me sound like a little kid, but I think that it's guidance that I'm looking for. I have the motivation, now show me the path to take kind of thing!
So, I've been downloading and testing out a few work out apps and hopefully I'll love them enough to review them for you guys on here. I've been playing around with a couple of them for a week now, and I've managed to keep up every day doing a minimum of 15 minutes to start with, so I'm feeling really positive about stuff.
Stay positive and beautiful people ;)
