My Arsenal - no excuses!

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

I really have no excuse not to exercise. I have plenty of ammunition in my arsenal. The only thing holding me back is laziness.

I have (almost) new running shoes.

I have 2 working legs & knees (a little sore sometimes, but if I dropped some pounds, that would probably fix that problem.)

I have a great neighborhood to walk in. Weather an issue?
I have a membership to an indoor walking/running track.

I have warm clothes for cold Chicago days.

I have plenty of dvd's for those days that aren't so nice.

I have plenty of Wii games to keep me active. EA sports active, Wii fit, Dance dance something.... and others.

I have a hula hoop and an indoor spot big enough to do it in.

I have a dvd to go along with the hula hoop.

I have a balance ball and a dvd to go with it.

I have all sorts of sporting equipment. Basketball, volleyball, baseball, football, tennis rackets etc. (Let's get the kids involved.)

I have a resistance band.

I have just acquired a heavy bag for boxing.

I have a dog that I should be walking.

I have children that I need to set an example for.

I have a husband that loves and cares for me no matter what my size. He wants me to be healthy.

What is holding me back? Laziness. Pure and simple.

November is a new month. It's MY month. I declare this my official kickstart to an active, healthy life!

    The boxing bag was a gift to my 13 yo dd. It's a Century Hydrocore water filled bag. We need to get it hung up! You can check Craigslist for one.

    Lock and load, baby!!! emoticon

I am jealous of the heavy boxing bag. I watch The Biggest Loser and have decided I need something to beat the snot out of with a metal pipe or similar. I think one of those would do the trick. Just not sure where to get one. Can I ask where you got it and how much it cost?

    WOW I like how you took inventory of all that you have. You will be successful, but true to yourself.
