Taking Care of Myself and Exercise!!!

Lately I have not been taking much care of myself...not quite sure why? Some could say depression, but I will just say pure LAZINESS! I'm so pleased with myself because the past two weeks now I have gotten up and gotten myself ready for the day. Before I was just rolling out of bed and wearing jeans, a hoodie, and a baseball cap - not flattering. I think the breaking point happened when I was driving home and Summer passed me on the road - I immediately got a phone call from her saying that she wanted to burn the "damn" hat that I was wearing. First I was stunned that she knew what I was wearing - she then informed me that she just passed me...HELLO?!?! I then got a talking to from her about how I need to take care of myself and look presentable, and then she proceeded to say that she didn't want me to be lonely. Ohhh...how kind! I decided it was time to make some changes!

Let me say this - from observation...since I have gotten up each morning and got myself ready I have noticed a difference in doing things throughout the day. I have been getting more done in my homework, in doing house work, and just more energy. The day's I haven't gotten ready I was more lazy and didn't care! Neat observation in my book!

Also, I have had some great inspiration from some family members (Anisa, Shellie, Summer...to name a few) who have lost lots of weight, toned up, and who have a daily exercise routine. Well, you have inspired me! I have been going to the gym everyday this week with Summer when she can make it, and I feel like I have been working out like crazy. It feels SO GOOD!!!

To summarize everything - my point is that I am going to keep my blog up with updates on my exercise routine! I read some where that it is a great way of staying motivated when everyone reads your blog. There you have it! I'll keep you posted on my exercising!!!

Libby, not only are you a card, you are a pretty darn interesting and clever writer as well. Only problem I see is your use of the apostrophe before the 's' when you shouldn't use it. (One of my pet peeves)

Oh, in Webster's a card is: "a person who attracts attention by his WIT, eccentricity, etc."

All I can say is it does the body good. I am so proud of you-I have always loved working out it puts me in the best mood. I only get to work out 1.5 hours a day I wish I could do more, but soon I will be chasing Legz everywhere that will be great. The only down side is that when women lose weight we also loose boobs it really sucks, I am so glad for boob jobs can't wait for mine when I am done having kids.

I hear ya. When I don't exercise I'm evern more ornery with the kids than I am on the days that I do exercise. That is the only reason I am posting at 7:00 am on a Saturday. I'm off to train with Jill.
