Making - and Keeping - Fitness a Priority

For two years I sat at a desk and gained close to 20 pounds --feeling tired & heavy instead of energized & fit.

A low point was when TWO people within a week (friends I hadn't seen in months) congratulated me on my pregnancy. Umm.... not pregnant. Devastating!

Oct 2011 I joined a fitness studio, combining ST and cardio to get back in shape. It definitely costs money, but the accountability and inspiration has been worth it.

What I've learned:

Oct 2011 I joined a fitness studio, combining ST and cardio to get back in shape. It definitely costs money, but the accountability and inspiration has been worth it.

What I've learned:
Working out alone doesn't work for me right now -- I need the commitment of scheduled classes. It's made all the difference.

Positive motivation and self-talk keep me going. I certainly get discouraged at times, and let it go as soon as I can.

Beer, salt and fat make me fat. Period. I struggle with this.

Workouts help me feel Fantastic! Spinning in particular changes my outlook dramatically. Every time.

A regular fitness practice is ESSENTIAL for me.
Otherwise it's a slippery slope.

Choose your goal and keep your eye on it. Never give up.
Perhaps you will need to change your plan
and approach you goal from a different direction, but don't quit.
Keep thinking. Keep re-planning. Keep going.

Hark how the bells,
sweet silver bells,
all seem to say,
throw cares away

Christmas is here,
bringing good cheer,
to young and old,
meek and the bold.


Gaily they ring
while people sing
songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here.

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas. emoticon

It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds. ~Unknown

Hoping Thanksgiving won't leave you wobbling after gobbling. emoticon
