Day 1

After spending all day yesterday with stomach pain due to now being too big for my britches (quite literally), I decided enough is enough, and today is officially DAY 1.   First day of the rest of my life and all that.  I keep saying I need to take better care of myself, and I want to be healthier, blah, blah but haven't done anything about it lately.  So, this is it.

Publicly declaring that I am tired of being a slothful lazy fat-ass, and despite my wimpish nature regarding cold temps, I will be back out on the roads tomorrow and on the days I'm not running, I will be doing something else fitness related.  Plus, I will not be hitting up Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts on a regular basis like I have been.  As much as I love my mochas and muffins, they're just not worth it!  Back they go, relegated to being treats instead of daily occurrences!


This morning, I randomly Googled "Workout Video" and came up with the high energy "Bootcamp Calorie Burn" on YouTube.  (For some reason I am unable to actually post the video here, but the link will take you to it if you're interested.)  I am proud to say that I actually kept up the whole time, with the exception of the last two pushups - I am notoriously terrible at them and I was so tired by that point that I just held a plank pose till he said to get up. LOL

Apparently, when I work out, it's taxing for my daughter, too. When I was done, she said "That was so hard!"   She said this from the couch.  Little smart aleck. LOL 

Anyway, now I feel better than I have in days, and I'm off to do household chore type things that got neglected all weekend due to an abundance of family time (not that I'm complaining!).  It is my sincere hope that I will be back blogging tomorrow about Day 2.  

Happy Monday! 


  1. Funny about your daughter's comment. My boys used to do the same thing when they were little. Now they are good about working out themselves!!!
    Great job on day #1 now it's just a matter of repeating on day 2!!!

    1. I'm hoping my kids stay active as they get older - I'm trying to set a decent example, but as we know, I'm not great at it!

  2. Love your daughter's comment! Kudos to you for getting through it!
