I've been wanting to get in shape forever, but I can't seem to ever talk myself into setting up the other room to start on it. I'm not chunky or anything but I'm also not a stick. I think I'm about the perfect weight but I would really like to get toned up.
Have any of you tried pilates? I think I asked this before but I don't remember. emotion_awesome
They say the first two weeks are the hardest. But once you get them out of the way, exercising becomes pretty habitual and enjoyable. I used to exercise every day and loved it. But, ever since knee surgery this summer I've been having a difficult time starting again (especially considering I still wasn't physically able to walk without pain until late November). I just want to tone back up and loose 20lbs so I can be 115lb again.

I just got done doing a Beach Body Turbo Fire workout and ******** YA ENDORPHINS!!!!! emotion_dowant
But seriously, I'm right there with ya, except I'm trying to lose a TON of weight. I'm 5'4" with a small frame so I should be around 125 instead of a blimpy 190ish, and I really want to look all 'daaayuuuuum' for my wedding next year. Plus fiance is dropping weight like a hot potato and lookin dead sexy so I need to catch up.emotion_yatta
It's difficult tho, I've been doing the diet/exercise thing for a few months, albeit more intermittently than I should, and I'm not seeing the results I want so I have to step my lazy butt up. Might get my thyroid checked but I'm still on the fence about it.
I had a pilates DVD somewhere that I tried a few times but I am simply not flexible enough for it yet. A lot of it requires moderate spinal flexibility and I have a fused spine from a scoliosis surgery so I get frustrated when I can't do things. P: The stuff I was actually able to do made me feel awesome tho, like yoga with more challenge to your muscles. I would definitely recommend it.
