Omm... yeah.


Lord knows I am trying to hold it together. LOL It is DAY 4 in the New Year, and I am pulling out all of the stops -

reading more, taking longer (hotter) baths, opting for smiles, sharing an encouraging word, and...

just laying it on the line with the egyptian.


I just said what needed to be said.. and now let the chips fall where they may.

Okay.. on to other things..

I have GOT to get motivated to head back to the gym. Before I left work, I came up with at least 6 different excuses for skipping my Body Jam class:

1. It was my first day back at work.... and I was tired.
2. I had to run a few errands after work.. and I was tired.
3. I had to cook dinner, since I got off work a little later, and got stuck in traffic.. and I was tired.
4. My mood was a little low by the time I got home.. and I was tired.
5. It gets darker so much sooner, so it got really cold quickly.. and I was tired.
6. Did I mention I was tired?

So.. I did not go.

Booo on me.

What is Body Jam? Did I show you? I found the actual choreography my class was doing (when I took a little break before Thanksgiving)

That is literally the last piece of choreography we were learning. See - all of the Body Jam classes around the world learn the same pieces every few months or so. I have no idea if they have moved onto the 55th yet or not. Which means, I may be learning some new stuff on Thursday. Also - this is the same exact music we all use... same technique and all. It's fun...

You have to watch the video all of the way through to see what I am talking about.. it's fun!

Sooo.. yeah.. trying to keep the positive attitude.. but lacking in motivation.

Here's hoping for a Terrific Tuesday!

What are you struggling with right now?

So this is body jam, huh? (Is it wrong that my arms were tired 20 seconds into it??) I encourage you - girl - you GET BACK to that class. Shake it.

Re: E - you deserve to be happy. That's all I'll say. You DESERVE it.

Re: motivation - when you find it, send some my way. I'm mentally motivated, but physically, not so much. Is that even possible?

Have a good day, my friend. Thinking of you.

the cold is an un-motivator for me with the gym. That's all the excuse I need.

Oh, it's hard enough to motivate oneself to do exercise, without doing it at the end of the day! And yet, it's so good for us ... it's a dilemma. Baby steps, rather than trying everything (eating habits, exercise, all the resolutions) at once offers encouragement without feeling overwhelmed, I think ....

My boyfriend & I are working hard to change our eating habits. He's diabetic, & he's having a minor health issue that's requiring us to curb our carbs. It's a very difficult transition, but we're working through it!

Hope the chips fell in a good place! Good luck on getting to the gym - remember you deserve to be happy and healthy.

More baths. Less Stress. That's my motto.

I find the hardest thing is to get there. After that, it's cake. I force myself to bikram yoga every time I go LOL
