What's a Girl to Do?

Good morning guys!

If you have been with me since the beginning (if you have, thank you so much!) then you know that I have been through a constant struggle with exercise. I could walk around town, I could exercise in my living room, I could go to the high school track and walk/job and flip a tire (didn't know they had that until the other day!) or many other things. But I don't, I haven't and it bothers me. I've lost close to 30 lbs. I should be feeling good enough to start doing something. 

Ain't that the truth??

Want to know a secret? I'm so lazy. Oh my good gracious, am I lazy! I have so many friends (Karen and Desiree are my two biggest inspirations as far as working out goes) that bust their ass as often as they can, and are getting out there and DOING IT! What do I do? I cheer them on! I love these ladies, and I want them to be happy and succeed in their efforts. Then what do I do? I sit in front of the TV and be lazy. 

Why am I telling you this? Won't this affect the way you view me? Well, first of all, I seriously hope not! But I'm hoping to hear how you get motivated! I will say this... I'm motivated to do something up to the point of actually doing it lol. I need to know, what is that OOMPH! that gets you off the couch and doing something? 

I would like to be at my goal weight by my anniversary which is in March... I only have about 20 lbs(ish) more to lose, And I think this will help... but I need a push. Tell me what makes you get up and do something.


  1. You know when I first started, I came across this quote..... "Nothing is as hard as the first step out of the door". And its the truth!

    But the weird thing is that once you get started, it kinda snowballs the effect. Start out with something small that you know you can accomplish. Say something like, I can exercise for 30 minutes 3 times per week. And do that. Then the next week maybe add a little more. Pretty soon you will start to crave the exercise! (i know, crazy talk, right!?!?) :)

    1. Thanks Desiree! I'm going to think about what I could do today... and hopefully come up with a plan of some kind. :)

  2. oh I hear ya! I'm pretty lazy too! It takes a lot to convince myself not to blow off running, TKD, etc.. Let's do this together!!
