Here are my excuses TO exercise today....
1. It makes me feel so much better!
2. It puts me in a better mood!
3. It makes me feel a sense of accomplishment!
4. It helps me release pent up frustration!
5. I'll be sitting in the room with my bike anyway, might as well put my sitting to good use!
6. It sets a great example for my son!
7. It will help me lose weight and feel great about myself!
8. It doesn't take very long!
9. I need some me time!
10.It might get me out of doing a chore!
How about you? Maybe your excuses TO exercise out weight your excuses NOT to exercise?
Have a great day!

Really, I feel like it's the same old cycle over and over again. I will say that I was only truly "off" for 2 or 3 weeks, much better than the last time which was several months. It's always amazing to me the difference cardio makes in my life. I haven't been sleeping well and wasn't feeling very good either. Sure, I only did 10 minutes last night, but it sure did make a big difference in how I slept and how I felt this morning when I got up. No tossing and turning, I slept like a log, and I woke up feeling refreshed (at least for a few minutes).
Tonight I have a goal of 15 minutes on my bike, along with a lot of housework that's been neglected, a trip to the grocery, and bill paying. Oh what fun!
Tomorrow we have a huge event at work (although I'm afraid it's going to get rained out) and my scheduled lunch is 10:30...ugh. I am in charge of the registration area so I think I'm going to get a bag of apples and some granola bars for the staff that's going to be working with me. I think they deserve that much at least.
Onward and upward (for the mood, downward for the weight)!
Make today the best day yet!!!

Hi guys! How's it going? It's great here, thank you for asking.
Sure, my wrist is still hurting, and my tummy is upset, BUT and this is a big BUT....my brother is doing great. I cannot believe how strong that man is. He is determined to heal quickly. It seems to me like he's doing just enough, but not more than what he should be doing. Just last night he began to be able to get himself out of bed without assistance!
Anyway, I need to update about me. Exercise wise, not so great. I refuse to get down and feeling sorry for myself because that is neither productive nor healthy. My diet, while no where near perfect wasn't terrible considering I ate out most nights last week. Tonight I will get back on my bike. At this point it's mere laziness keeping me off of it. Well, and the contractors who have been working in my house....okay, I'm calling BS on that one. They've only been working in the house one day and that was yesterday AND further more they were gone by the time I would have normally exercised. Nice try Heather, that excuse won't work!
Okay, no excuses. I haven't been doing what I should and mostly I have no good reason why. Most of the time (aside from 1 or 2 nights) I have been home in plenty of time to workout. I've simply let laziness and/or tiredness psyche me out. Tonight I shall ride again!!!
Anyway, if you've been putting something off now is the time to jump the fence and get it done!
Thanks for listening!

Listen. It isn't. We want it to be. If it were easy we wouldn't learn to grow. I'm not gonna lie, I'm struggling right now. I haven't been exercising and I just ate 3 McDonald's chocolate chip cookies AND a medium fry.
Am I giving up on myself or my goals?
No I'm not.
You know why?
Because I am better than that. I am bigger than that. I am fabulous, I am fierce, I am determined.
Yesterday I sat in a waiting room for 9.5 hours while my brother had surgery on his back for a slipped disk. I watched my 6 year old son be more patient than the 10 year old boy who was in the waiting room a fraction of the time. I watched my Mom ignore the entire world and concentrate on a book to try to keep the fear at bay. I watched my Dad as he blamed himself for my brothers slipped disk. I watched my family, I thought about my brother, I counted down the minutes until I could be with him again and I counted down the days that he would be pain "free". I saw the love in every single one of those faces and it touched me more deeply than I could have imagined. Today, I watched my brother struggle to sit up, to stand, to walk....things I take for granted. He didn't think he could do it, he knew he could. Because our bodies are capable of miraculous things. I love my brother so much. He's so solid, such a rock. I am so proud of him for standing tall today, no matter how much pain he was in...and barely a complaint uttered from his lips. Only a heavy sigh of relief when it was done.
I am thankful for my family, I am thankful for the Doctors and Nurses and Aides and who knows who else. I am thankful for the body that I have been given. I might no have been nice to it today, but overall I am kind to my body and I am working to make it strong.
Have a wonderful day and be thankful for the ability to stand pain free.
