I haven't written anything for a month. I guess I haven't had much to say. Nah I have always have something to say.

Over the last two years I have done lots of exercises. Walking inside and outside, stationary bike, my blue bike, walking video, Curves, and personal training. I was walking with Darla and Shauna this week and Darla reminded me of what it was like when I first started exercising. It was so hard! I could barely walk 4 or 5 laps around our church gym before needing to sit down. There were many people there to lie to me. They would lie and say "I don't know how many we've walked. Come on we have a few more." They lied for my best interest. Ok It wasn't lying.

Not only have I had many different exercises but I've had many people be there while exercising. Diana, Tina Lee, Susie, Pennie, Abbie, the girls, Candi, Needra, Kerri, Michelle, Melissa, Shauna, Chastity, Suzonne, Mother, Darla, Peggy H. and Stephen! OH MY GOODNESS I hope I didn't forget anyone. I've had some people to walk with me down the journey!

What has been going on the last few weeks? Workouts! Love Workout Wednesdays! Each Wednesday, four of us stay after church and work out with Stephen. Stephen is our Bob and Jillian. Of course he is much nicer. This doesn't mean he doesn't push us. He does. The only thing I dread is the soreness that usually comes two days later! This week I was sore the morning after.

It's funny how I went from dreading the exercising to craving it. I know I've lost my mind! I try to do some kind of exercise between 5 and 6 days a week. It makes me feel good and it makes me get to my goal faster.

The only thing I have left to say is this...take it a day at a time and get up and move! IT WILL MAKE LIFE BETTER!
