Fitness?? What fitness???

Okay, seriously, this is my last post of the morning. In spite of all my posting I've been very busy, getting lots done.

I did my cardio workout this morning and then, because it is so gorgeous, I pulled out my bike, cleaned it up and took it for a spin. That is where reality bitch-slapped me across the face. I have lost so much fitness it is not funny. All those months I spent dithering back and forth, should I do this, should I do that, blah, blah, blah..... What I should have been doing is getting off my fat butt and moving. So the realization hit me and I need to change it. I enjoy riding my bike and want to be able to do it without killing myself. I went about 4 miles this morning and thought I was going to die. I have got to figure out a way to get back to where I was before. I know if I work on that the pounds will come off and things will be as I want them to be. I just need to figure out how to get back there. I do know that I undermine myself and I have to stop doing that. I think I'm going to take my lists and start really making them work for me. I've gotten to the point where if something is on my list I get it done no matter how much I don't want to. Okay, I need a plan of attack so I'm off to make one.

So Flo. What does it take? Get off the butt and get moving!!! It's so easy to analyse and find reasons and so on and so on. Just do it. Stop agonising. Make just ONE DECISION - to exercise every day no matter what! Once that decision is made, it's easy. You don't have to make a decision every day. You know what you have to do, so just do it.

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
