Wow, that 'lift yourself from the edge of your chair' thing is killer!!! I've just added those to my weekly routine since Montel was on the Dr. Oz show and said that particular exercise was great for the flabby arm thing;) It's definitely veryy hard for me right now though, guess that's how badly my arms need it!

WAW! I am SO proud of myself. Did it did it did it! Of course, from the second I opened my eyes this morning I was trying to find excuses not to, 1st my husband's socks in the living room, why does he leave them there? He thinks I am his maid?? Then the dishes dirty in the sink ( I know I know, fly lady**), then, then...my resentment build up and I decided to stay in PJ's and watch a movie... But then somehow I started thinking: I don't want to be the lazy fat mom who sits in her PJ's and watch movies, I want to be the fit, happy, organized, clean-house mom who is upbeat and positive. In a whim, I cleaned my house ( meaning I made it presentable :-) ) I made supper and wrote my husband ( he is amazing btw...forget the socks) a love note telling him how much I appreciate him ( I was already playing in my mind how I am going to yell at him and diminish him for leaving his socks in the living room and how lazy, nasty and bad he is...wow)
And of course, I started my workout.
I wanted to give up again after 20 minutes, I cried and I kept yelling to myself " I am fit, I am FIT, I am the fit person who works out for 30 min a day, I am THAT thin healthy fit woman!!!
Thanks for listening!
The only choice is whether I will take the next step or not, beyond that, it is not up to me right now.
