I'm handing myself a do-better slip

Friday, October 31, 2014

I'm not entirely sure what a do-better slip is but it's an expression that I've heard before and I like it so I'm giving myself one. After getting settled into my new apartment and going back to work, I had high hopes that I was going to ease back into a rhythm of eating well and exercising consistently. Well that didn't happen. I've dealt with ovarian cysts in my past and they're back, so I've been in pain. Between that and a general bloated, frumpy, and fatigued feeling, I haven't been exercising with any kind of consistency. That has got to stop. Just because I don't FEEL like exercising, isn't an excuse. And pouting doesn't help; it's cute on babies but not on me.

I gained a few pounds back, plus I'm not helping my Fall Challenge team here on Spark People when I only exercise 10 or 15 minutes a day. I can do better than this. And here is the Mafia Baby to put me in my place:

And then there's the regular-guy Jersey baby who don't take no guff from no one:

Hee hee these make me laugh. Anyway, I'm going to dial it up a notch and do better. For now, Happy Halloween!!
