Approximately six years ago I added to one of my holiday wish lists that I wanted the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders boot camp workout video. Sadly, this dvd is still in the case, wrapped in plastic wrap and has never been touched.
I religiously watch the reality series and would love to look like those women.
They look amazing. Their perfect makeup, bouncy voluminous hair and rocking bodies make me super jealous.
Here recently I have been thinking more and more about pulling that dvd out and going to work. My weight has fluctuated since I was a teenager. One week I will drop five pounds and then the next week I will pack on ten pounds. Although I have a small petite frame no one else seems to notice the loss or gain so I frequently hear "what fat do you need to lose, you should be eating more or if I had a body like yours I would flaunt it". I on the other hand do not feel that way at all.
I feel mushy in the center and can name a few areas that need toning. I just want to feel good about myself come this summer when I am wearing a swimsuit! Ya know?!?!
No one can tell you how to look or what to do. Although opinions matter, the way you feel about yourself is the most important.
So, I have decided that I will dust off the dvd, wipe away the cobwebs and motivate myself to reach my goal!
I am crossing my fingers and toes that some day I will be happy with my body and that I will reflect back on this post and smile, knowing I did it!
Have you started a new workout routine?
Have you been putting this same issue off?
