This last month since we've been in a hotel, I haven't done any exercising. Other than walking over to the park, and walking in a store, I have done nothing. It's not like I really can. Our room is too small for any kind of exercising, and I have the kids all day. Also, on top of that, I stay up late, read or fool around on the computer. While I do that, I eat all kinds of stuff that I shouldn't be eating. On top of that, we've eaten out more than usual and the food that I am able to cook isn't the good fresh stuff. I can feel the results in my tummy (and in other places)....

I had a DVD that I fell in love with. I had gotten it for a dollar at Walmart. This woman does dance routines to club music. LOVE it!! It wasn't boring with lame music at all. Well, some might label club music as lame, but I don't. I really liked my cool DVD. I tried to do the more difficult section and my DVD just stopped working. I couldn't see what she was doing, or hear anything. I was so bummed!!! I have pilates DVD's but I need cardio too. So, I found her three DVD set on Amazon and bought them recently. I also got a new pilates DVD that came with one of those stretchy band things. And I bought some weights. I am SO excited to start exercising. I am tired of my jeans being tight and of the wrinkles on the back of them because they are being stretched so far. I am tired of feeling fat and I'm tired of complaining about it. I also think that part of my problem is that I have been blessed with an amazing metabolism, and this is the first time of my life that I've actually had any kind of weight issues. Other than after pregnancy weight of course. It will not be easy to make this change, but I think I will be happier if I do.

Today while the kids were at the park I sat down and made a rough schedule of what I want my days to be. I also made a list of daily chores and weekly chores. Of course this won't all come into play until about a month after moving in. Hopefully by that time most of the boxes will be emptied and things will be organized. I plan on my exercising to start sometime next week once there is space enough to do it. And I want to be up before the kids so that I can do it before they wake up. I'm hoping this house has thicker walls than our other one.....

I kind of feel like this is my golden time, or maybe better described as my make it or break it time. If I don't make these changes now, I will struggle for a long time. But if I can manage to do it now, then the rest of my life will be easier. I feel that I've almost pinpointed the reasons for my issues and have decided on a plan of action to get past those reasons. I am so excited for this!!! And I get to start on Wednesday. Yay!!!

We haven't been living in a hotel, but since I have been trying to get back to exercising, its been a lot harder than it has in the past. I did 20 minutes on my stair stepper today, and that was huge.

Keep up the good work. The DVD's sound fun. I need to pull out my old ones and get back into that as well.

I'll add your family blog to my roll. You can still find this blog by googling you. The safest thing is probably to go private-FYI.

i've never tried to google myself. did you try?? hmmmm, will have to go and try this. reality is that the people that i really don't want to read this wouldn't think about googling me. they have our family blog, and they are probably happy with that.

I googled you and couldn't believe what I found. Wow.

I love Googling myself. But I am a navel-gazing professional blogger...

Anywho, I've been having a hard time getting back into exercising. I start with 15 minutes of easy yoga until I work myself up to the more "involved" yoga, firming pilates and kickboxing. It's probably going to be at least a month before I start kickboxing again. The ankle isn't helping...
