Well, that's a bit disappointing

Watched the first video for the SixpackShortcuts, and it does not live up to only one part of the introduction video that I first saw. The one that I had seen on youtube, led me to a site and there was a part about "using your own body weight".

Time to face the anxiousness about gyms and get a membership to one. I don't want to be spending the money to get my own home gym, nor do I have the room for it in a one bedroom apartment. Doing it from home was one of the things that I was most looking forward to. This does look like the most promising way to get in shape, in the least amount of time. Getting fit buzz has kinda been killed right now. Time to take some time and think about this and I'll see about getting a gym membership and where I'm going from here.

Prep day!

Today has been the prep day to get ready for my new lifestyle change. I've gotten my membership at the Sixpack Shortcuts website, and I've watched the first video.

I had issues with my credit card last night and trying to get the subscription. Thought all hope was lost. When an hour later I get a call. I examine my phone and I see the name "Texas" come up on the caller ID, and I think to myself "those damn telemarketers never leave me alone" and this is at about 11 o'clock at night. So I hand the phone to my fiance and she answers it, looks at me with a confused look and hands the phone to me. To my surprise it was Mike Chang who phoned me, -*insert small idiotic star struck moment here*-and for those of you who don't know who he is, he is the creator/founder of Sixpack Shortcuts. He was giving me a hand to set up my account because I was having problems with my credit card. He was able to help me out and we got it resolved, apparently he was having issues with the website as well. We also just chatted for a few mins too, nice person, and it really says something about the company if he's willing to call and make sure everything goes smoothly.

Now I'm more determined than ever to make sure I go through with this. I'm off to work right now for nightshift and when I get back in the morning, I'm doing my first workout and going shopping for some groceries. I shall let you know how it all goes.

New beginning

Welcome to my blog. Im am going to be getting in shape and thought I would share with you my non-sugar coated opinions of today's exercise fads. I want to get in shape, and stay in shape, like everyone else but I want people to have honest answers. I find most companies, obviously, give their preferred answers. That's frustrating when you're looking for the pros and cons. I'm going to share every step of the way in my blog to get fit, the good, and the bad.

I'm going to be starting the Sixpack Shortcuts, to get me into shape. It isn't going to be easy either as I don't exercise. This is a lifestyle change. I'm looking forward to this program, as it says you can use your own body weight for the exercises. I hope that's true, I don't particularly care for gyms, and I'll explain why.

I'm not sure if there is anyone else that feels the same way, but, for anyone who doesn't look like they belong on the cover of a muscle magazine, a gym can be intimidating. I can easily point out my own flaws, and when I go to a gym I hate it. You walk in, and you gaze around the room and notice how many fit and muscular. That's when those little red flags pop up in the back of my mind saying "I don't look like these people. Why am I here?" and it starts to infuriate me, because I don't look like them and there isn't anyone else who looks like me. Ever since I went to the gym for the first time, I thought there should be two types of gyms. One for the fit and muscular, statuesque type people, and another one for the rest of us ;). It would be less of a daunting task I think. What do you think?

Now it's time for me to order the greasiest pizza I can find and pig out before I start my new regime, tomorrow.
