The plan begins to formulate in my head

I'm losing this weight.....I haven't started, but I'm GOING to lose. My plan right now. I'm not even going to ATTEMPT to try to lose over the holidays. No way, now how. BUT, from now until the new year, I'm going to focus on trying to STOP the binges! If I can stop the binges, then when the new year comes...I'll be in MUCH better shape to really get the eating under control. I'm also thinking that yes I need to get my food under control but I'm going to focus on getting into religious/regular exercise. I know that if I work out in the morning, that I'm more apt to say "heck no I'm not going to negate that workout by eating this cupcake....or inhaling that chocolate!" Sometimes it is worth it to eat something...but for the most part it's actually a deterrent for me.
I'm looking at ways I can motivate myself with exercise. I work best with a goal. A clear cut that is verbalized and put out there for the world to see and know. I've been thinking. I've been pondering. On my own it's got to be something that doesn't require me to spend much money on outfitting myself or money for special training. (running? hmmmm)   I have a bike, it's not a road works, but it's not conducive to doing long bike events.   Swimming, that would require me to have access to a pool (drat....)   You sucks trying to be healthy and switch to an active lifestyle when you are tight on money!

Do you have a family center or YMCA where you live? Some places you can just pay to use the pool and not the fitness equipment. I've also been told, by a personal trainer at work, that the best time of day to work out is in the morning before you've had any food at all since that's when your metabolism is at it's highest. Good luck, my friend.

Lots of YMCAs offer income based pricing...but also with the addition of smart phones and ipod...there's lots of apps that help with training. I've been working on the C25K which is a free app and I love crossfit, also a free app and there's a personal trainer app I downloaded too...just have to pick what you want!
