Because I truely want to be healthy, I am not just dieting, I am excercising my butt off... hehe. I heard about this program (Yourself!Fitness) on Good Morning America a few weeks ago and had to check it out. I looked in the stores but couldn't find it. I ended up getting it at Amazon.com.
Basically, Y!F is a personal trainer in an XBox. Sounds wierd, I know. When you first start, Maya (the virtual trainer) does a fitness evaluation on you and assesses your goals. I put in my weight, did jumping jacks for 2 minutes (much harder than I thought), did as many push-ups as I could, as many squats as I could, and as many crunches as I could. Later in the "game" Maya will test me again to track my progress. I think that will be an easy way for forgetful me to remember to evaluate my progress.
I'm also going to post my measurements here (get it all out, won't you Tracey?). I may seem a little psychotic about all this, but I am for real this time. When I told Michael about how serious I was, he jokingly said, "I'll believe it when I see it." He wasn't being mean or insensitive... just realistic. I think he also knew what a drive that is to me. Now I'm going to prove it. I will be a hot mama! :-D
