What is wrong with the word 'shrinkage' !?!
I dont know what you are talking about!! ......
I am talking about weight loss, of course!!
What could be dirty about that!
Geeze Louise! You thought I was talking about what??!!!
*tisk tisk* What a dirty mind, you have! *grin*
For the past few months I haven't been out of the house much..... I have been fighting the winter willies (oh come on people!) and have been cooped up in front of this darn computer for way too long now!!!
I suspect my ass has doubled in size.....
Its either that or all this cold weather has given my computer chair a bad case of shrinkage.
You may remember that my chair was similarly effected back in November -
My Computer Chair Is Shrinking November 10/08
The past few months have not been good ones for me.... or they have been great ones.... depending on how you want to look at it.
I have been working through some personal challenges and have been making some very weighty life decisions.... one of which is that I am not buying a horse or riding at the moment... which has weighed heavily on me.... and on my ass. Actually, on my ass, thighs, calves, arms, etc. etc. etc. ......I have been in a pretty serious funk for the past 4 months and my health has suffered for it. I know that I need to get out and exercise, to eat better, to sleep better, to take my vitamins, eat my blueberries and get to a riding lesson at least once a week.... !!! I KNOW I need to do those things.... but every morning I wake up and say to myself.... "I have to do it today!! I will do it!!!...."
And every afternoon I look out the window and think... "Ugh! I'd rather have a cup of tea, read some blogs and make some marshmallows..... I dont really have to go out, do I? Oh ...screw it... I'll start tomorrow!
And tomorrow... and tomorrow.... has come and gone and yet still.... here I sit.
So, is today "tomorrow"? I think it needs to be. Because I turned on the TV last night and watched the story of the "Half Ton Mom" and realized that "tomorrow" hasn't come for her yet either.
I know I am not alone.... Over half of America is obese.
But I hate sitting in front of the computer. I hate the crappy feeling eating crap food gives you. I hate feeling heavy. I hate looking fat. I hate being tired all the time. I hate stressing about all the things I should be doing. I hate...
NOT BEING HEALTHY!
I love to hike. I love to walk my dog. I love to ride. I love being outside. I love exploring new places. I love to go for road trips. I love the feeling of knowing that I have nurtured my body with healthy foods. I love yoga. I love feeling energetic, balanced, and clear headed. I love...
It seems a little crazy that I choose to do all the things I hate and none of the things I love, doesn't it?
So... maybe I should stand up!! *I stand up*
Only it is hard to type standing up like that so I will sit back down for a minute, k?
*sits back down*
In a minute I am going to stand up! I am going to hit "publish post" and I am going to go for a freakin' walk!!!
Actually, I am going to go and get dressed first. 'Cause People might.... just maybe.... think it odd if I walk around in my bath robe.... though in this neighborhood that is a serious maybe!
I just had an idea (really, I am not stalling... I will go just as soon as I am done this post!)
I am going to add a little "health update" to the bottom of my post every day for the rest of the month...... I will tell you all what I did to make myself a little healthier that day.....
So ..... are you in?
Just got in from my walk. Feels goods to have it done! It was freakin' cold!!! Good thing I have extra insulation! :)
