I need to lose 30 pounds! I needed to lose 20 when I went to Dallas last month but since I’ve been home I’ve gained 10 pounds! T.E.N.!!! POUNDS!!! So, this week it was a slow start back to the gym. But my heart isn’t in it. I know I need to go, and I do go… mostly.
Here’s the thing for me. Hubby and I walk almost very morning. But since he took the coaching job he isn’t home in the mornings. When he gets home in the evening he doesn’t want to walk. He’s too tired. I understand that, and I want to visit with him so I don’t walk. Even though I do take my dog out for a spin when it cools down.
With my deadlines, my business, and life in general, I’ve made it ok not to take care of this one and only body of mine.
So this week I’ve been back to really watching the carbs and drinking lots of water during the day, but I know exercise is the key to losing the weight. I have a girl friend who runs. She looks great. She tells me all of the time to run, “running will melt the weight off” she says in her perky little voice coming out of her perky little mouth attached to her perky little body. Grrr, no resentment here folks, but I think someone forgot to tell her: it hurts to run! I’ve never liked to run. Remember in high school you had to do that awful 800 yard run thingy? I always called in sick that day. Running is hard work!
Well, guess who bought a pair of running shoes? Moi. So, beginning today August 31, 2007 I am putting it out there. I need to lose 30 pounds. Every Friday when I post, regardless of topic, until it’s G-O-N-E, I am going to post how much weight I have lost. Anyone want to join me?
