So as it turns out I have a gym in my basement!! The elliptical trainer that I bought 3 years ago-a weight bench-several hand weights and a giant balance ball. The excuses are getting harder and harder to make....
I am finding that the first 5 minutes on the elliptical are the hardest and once I get past 10 the last 20-30 aren't bad. I'm doing LOTS of ab work-not because I am kidding myself that the stomach you could bounce quarter off of that I had before I had 2 kids is ever coming back but because my back hurts all the time and I think if I strengthen my core it will likely feel much better. I am way too young to feel this sore and out of shape!
I have done some sort of cardio every day since Friday-that's 5 days of momentum. Maybe the old saying that a body in motion stays in motion will prove to be true-and who knows, maybe some trace of my sex drive will come back too-I haven't seen that in YEARS!!!
