Bustin' excuses!

I had made excuse after excuse that the weight just was going to be what it was because I was too busy to change it...little did I realize that at age 42 it's REALLY hard to make it "disappear", you have to do something about it!!Gotta get away from being the "Queen of Excuses" and focus on being strong and fit. I used to be skinny and athletic, ate whatever I wanted with no repercussions until I hit my 20's-now just feel overweight, sluggish and not "myself". Need to get back to that old ...

I used to be skinny and athletic, ate whatever I wanted with no repercussions until I hit my 20's-now just feel overweight, sluggish and not "myself". Need to get back to that old feeling for me and my family.
I need to bust my excuses of:
I don't have time. (What else DO I have?)
I'm too tired. (Maybe exercise gives you energy!)
I'm busy with the kids. (Modify it so we all can participate!)
I need to study. (so work the time in-get organized!)

I can't let anything stop me except for me. And I need to do a better job in taking care of myself. I have confidence, know how and attitude-I need to use it for good and STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!

Hi,
I clicked on your page on saw the photo you have in the background!! Isn't that one of the most beautiful places you've ever seen? The thing about it is that as pretty as the pictures are it REALLY LOOKS LIKE THAT! When were you there? I want to go back & never come home.

Thanks for the whack, I needed it! LOL
I always tout my motto 'if I can't have fun doing it, I'm not gonna' and I think that's what happened with PDX90 - it was a clusterf.. erm.. mess! I've got enough going on otherwise to keep me in the groove, once I get back in it.
Glad to hear you're doing so well with the ST and Pimpin'!
