Resolution schmesolution...

Here it is, 2008.....hard to believe.

Of course, like everyone I've been asked if I've made any resolutions for the new year. Nope, not this year. HOWEVER....

I was watching The Biggest Loser the other night, as I have for most of its 5 cycles, usually while eating a snack...and something flipped the switch. I started to cry, how sappy is that? I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time and the reason for that is my weight.

As I told my husband, when I was 9 months pregnant with my son 8 years ago, actually right up to the day before I went in to be enduced, I walked 4 miles a day (1 there and 1 back twice a day) to my kids school. (BTW, my hubby and I don't have any biological children together). Now, I get all huffy and puffy walking 1/2 mile up to the dock near our home.

So that was it for me. For some reason it's there, it's clicked. I told hubby (who is diabetic and smokes) that I would love for him to do it with me but I didn't NEED him to. I've started walking the dogs every night to the dock so that's a mile (there and back). I'll walk that for about a week and then put the 'marker' farther up and so on. DH did walk with me last night but not the night he's trying a little bit anyway.

It's time..........
What about you?

No real 'resolutions'. But, I was going to say... when we lived in Colorado, I used to walk downtown to the park (with the kids) or post office, around town (not a very big town). I was in the best shape I had been in in a long time. Every little bit counts. And it seemed when you exercise or are a little more active, you drink more water. And I seemed to eat healthier, too. For seem reason going for a walk made me crave a nice, cold juicy apple. (Not red delicious though-yuck.) :P I need to start walking again, that's for sure.

You know, needle buddy, I just ain't up for setting myself up for failure. I'm not resoluting nothing. I am a way cool cheerleader though. "You go girl!"

I feel like I have so much on my plate. What with just graduating, starting a new job day after tomorrow, all the new stuff I am learning with my fiber arts career heating up. Humph, I'll be doing walking in conjunction with my Bible ministry; hopefully that'll be enough to at least get the heart reaving. We have an excellent gym AND payroll deduction at my job, but it's about when do I find the time to get over there to work out? I'll figure it out, when I do, am sure I'll blog about it. Meantime, I am trying to organize this there here life of mine.

Keep the way cool posts coming. I need to add your blog to my "Blogs of Relevance" board.

Oh, and later you have GOT to tell me how to:

1) Get the WIP chart going. Saw it somewhere last year, but the code didn't work for me (then); and,

2) How to personalize the background at Blogger. That is so way cool. :)

I know just what you mean about being sick and tired of feeling that way! I decided I needed to do something about it and this time for good, so I began back in September. It's an uphill climb but one I'm determined to conquer. Best of luck to you in your determination also!
