..healthy?

okay. way back in the day {here} i let y'all know about how out. of. shape. i am--it's no exaggeration. i never work out and eat whatever i want. lets just say it's catching up to me. i get tired easier, no energy, moodier, random stomach aches, and to be completely honest, i'm not happy with myself right now and that can lead to insecurities. SO. i'm going to try something. but the thing is i can't stay motivated to save my life. there's more junk food in this house than the willy wonka factory. i'm basically set up for failure ha

my kitchen = 


so i've been doing research {google} trying to find good programs or anything really. haley {roommate} has P90X and i've watched her do it before, and it's just not my cup of tea. looks like a lot of muscle building/upper body stuff. but i've also been told insanity is better for the overall body? anyone used it? what do YALL do to stay in shape? i love food. can't seem to resist it. would appreciate some input! i'm only home for two more weeks--it should be easier when i'm back at school because i'm more active/have more control/do my own grocery shopping.


overnight hike in the fall--now that was a nice way to work out because it didn't even seem like exercise--oh well, time for bed can't wait for your advice! 

yours truly,

I am exactly the same, its awful how un healthy i am. I have joined the gym recently and even going there for an hour tires me out but it does make you feel better and more energised. Swimming is a good way to work out and keep fit as well. Good luck :)

I am the exact way, but I tried the yoga part of p90x for 20 mins and I was about to die; isanity is harder, those two are really for people who are already "in-shape", i have the brazil butt lift video from the people who make p90x i tried it before and loved it, it does get hard but ur having fun doing it and its not only for ur butt, its everywhere~ but i have been super lazy and havent put it back in the dvd player, i just started walking everyday with my dogs and u will be suprised by that doing something...but i have this beginners workout plan i found on pinterest i am gonna do a post about it because i am feeling like u are..lol..but i can email it to you if you want just send me a email @ courtney.n.westwood@gmail.com :)

I am right there with ya girl! I try to make sure that I walk for at LEAST 20 minutes a day. I also had joined Weight Watchers for a few months. It taught me discipline and I learned about reading labels and saw how unhealthy the food I ate really was. I had to stop my membership cause I didn't have the money over summer but I am definitely signing up again in the fall. It's about $40 a month and I lost about 1-2 pounds a week.

Also, check out "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst. It's a really great companion guide to your weight loss plan. Google it cause the book has a website you can check out :)
