In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

I finally admitted to myself this weekend that the reason I feel run down and tired all the time is that I need to lose weight. I need to get moving and stop eating so much junk. I have always loved dancing and horseback riding, but I've moved into town and my horses are too far away to ride more than every once in a great while. Also, my favorite mare, my best friend for 12 years, died last month, so I am down to just my little boy's mare, who in not ride-able at the moment due to an injury.

I started my diet/exercise program today. I managed 10 minutes of Pilates and some Yoga stretches, but I'm SOOO out of shape. I know it takes baby steps, so I'm going to try to be patient and build up slowly. I know everyone says to walk, but I hate to walk alone and the treadmill at the gym is boring. I don't mind the short videos on this site for now, and eventually will find some classes locally - once I build up enough stamina for them not to be a waste of my money and time. I'd hate to pay for 30 minutes of a class that I can only do for 10 minutes.

Right now I'm sad and disappointed that I let myself get to this point, but I think I've hit bottom - so now its all up from here. I just have to remember that it took a long time to get here, I'm not going to get better over night.

God never gives us any more than we can handle - I just wish he didn't have so much faith in me!
-Mother Theresa
