I've been hearing a lot of people complain about hitting a plateau or just not losing. It scares me.
I'm going to try my damnedest to avoid it and I am hoping switching up my workouts every two to four weeks will keep my body on it's toes. Literally as well as figuratively since I do love my NYC ballet workout. As the happy owner of the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels , I'm planning on kicking my own butt starting Monday. Hard. I just have to be careful to eat enough. I'd also love to try the p90x system but don't have the money for weights, a pull up bar, or resistance bands. Especially since I'm not sure I can even stick with the program. It looks really intense and I'm a bit of a chicken. I know losing weight isn't easy, I just wish it was cheap.
My husband revealed on Wednesday that he has a dream and it's the hike of a lifetime. I'm still in a bit of shock since he's always been very anti outdoor sports. Not just traditional team sports, but including bouldering, climbing, canoeing, fishing, camping, and a number of other activities that might be described as "rugged activities." He wants to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. All 2,181-ish miles of it, virtually non-stop, and it averages about 5 months to do it all.
We would start in Maine in June of whatever year and then work our way south on foot to Georgia. It's amazing. I want to do it. Who knows when? I sure as heck don't. But I want to be in shape when the time does come. Nothing makes me as happy as the thought of a husband and wife adventure. I figure I need my feet to be able to handle about 20 miles per day with moderate trail conditions. I had better kick up the endurance!
