Happy New Year!
I am so glad that 2011 is over. It was an injury, accident, disaster filled year. By the end, I kind of looked like one of the zombies in “the Walking Dead” but with slightly better hair and makeup. (Well on most days.)
At the end of 2011, I finally was able to get back on my bike and start working out. Then something sparked in my reptilian brain. It doesn’t do that very often.
Three things came to mind:
I missed cycling and exercise. (When I don’t exercise, I get tired, zombie-like and can eat corn chips for dinner before I pass out in front of the TV.)
My bike pants didn’t fit. (Spandex is a cruel mistress.)
I needed to get back on Sparkpeople.
The truth will set you free. I finally went to the gym to weigh myself. Yes, I am precisely 12 pounds over my maintenance weight. One stinking pound for every lousy month of my awful 2011.
The fact that last year has settled on my stomach and thighs is pretty rude! (The nerve!)
The fact that I have to think about last year every time I try to squeeze into Spandex (don’t ask). Or the fact that I LOVE sweatpants and flannel PJs right now. But I probably can’t wear these to meetings at work. Not even on casual Friday.
So, 2011 has got to GO! It is officially last year. It is done..so last season. And I am finished carrying around last year’s baggage.
