Oops, I did it again ....

Nothing will change.  I am not lucky enough to eat what I want and excuse me for a second, "expel" the food hours later.  I think my metabolism has been on an extended vacation for a few years.  I don't wake up and think about the upcoming exercise I need to do, I actually don't think about it at all.  I always think of tomorrow and how Future Me can figure this one out for herself.  I do however ask myself over and over, "What in the world is wrong with me?"
Whine, gripe, grumble, moan and cry ... I know it could always be worse but why am I such a poor sport when it comes to taking care of me?  I make sure my kids eat their salads and finish it, I make sure they don't sit in front of the TV all day, "Get some exercise," I tell them, "Go play."  But me?  Oh, dear-fatty-me loves to watch television and read and play on the computer.  
What is wrong with this picture?
Another week gone by and what did I do to get healthier?  Zip, zero, nada.  I did do some Christmas shopping and walked around the mall for a few hours.  I would like to think that counts for something, my legs hurt, my feet ached and my thumbs swelled up, seriously, when I move my thumbs swell, totally weird. 
So ... nothing will change.  Unless I finally up and do it! I don't have the money for weight loss surgery, which is what four relatives of mine have had done in the past two years.  And if I did, would I want to do that?  It can be done, I have seen it done in my family by the one member who opted out of weight loss surgery and just moved more and ate less. 
I did update my blog a little.  Check out: My New Weigh In Page ... yes, there's a # there now
and: a few more pictures I added 
So, something must change.  I must get over my lazy hump and do as Nike says, "Just Do It!" 
I start work this week.  Big sigh for not having a refridgerator at my service all day long.  Maybe I can wake up ONE HOUR earlier and go walking or do some DVD excerise tapes that are collecting dust.
Only person stopping me, is me. 


  1. Music always helps we exercise. If I have my i-pod and some good tunes playing I always walk or jog a little further than normal. Just an idea! Also, do you guys have a Wii?? If you do, you should invest in a game like Just Dance 2. It really keeps you moving (to the point of sweating), but is tons of fun at the same time!

  2. Music always helps *me* exercise (typo in above comment, sorry)

  3. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Seriously, you can. And if you need to vent, this is the place; if you need a swift kick in the rear, I'm sure you can get that too! lol
    Pick a small goal - ANY goal that can be achieved in short order. You will feel better because you'll know that you are moving in the right direction. You have a support team behind you!!

  4. I've been meaning to exercise more lately and the only thing that motivates me is to put on my workout clothes first and to actually start walking to the gym or to start doing some jumping jacks or something to get moving. I read that online and it really seems to work for me, just taking the initial steps and then once you do that you might as well keep going!
    When I think of it as more of a stress reliever it makes it more appealing too for some reason lol.

    Love you! You can do this!
