Two posts in one day, oh my!!!

I'm just so proud of myself I have to brag a little.  Even though there was a point a few years ago where I was in awesome shape and I managed to find time for everything; running, swimming, strength, biking, hiking; not to mention working full time, I still use the excuse of not having enough time.  I'm doing next to nothing now and still working full time but I'm home by 4:30 instead of 6.  Yeah, it's an excuse and I'm working it for all it's worth.  In all seriousness I've been trying to come up with ways to make workouts not only convient but super easy.  Well, I've come up with a couple of ideas and I'm so pleased with myself.  First, I'm worked it out so that I can walk the dogs again.  Yea!!  This means that when I come home from work I will now take an hour long walk, a half hour with each dog.  Sweet.  I love walking my dogs and this is a fabulous way to end a day.  Also, I moved my stationary bike into the living room.  The living room in this house is large enough to hold 2 couches and my bike and still have plenty of room. So my plan is in the evening instead of sitting on my butt watching TV I can sit on the bike.  I plan on doing it for at least 30 minutes every night and will work up to more.  There is even a magazine holder that is big enough to hold my netbook if I really wanted to.  I've been trying to do some research and get another insurance quote for the house and car.

I've also set some goals for myself.  I want to be able to take CrossFit Hawaii during summer break but I need to be in better shape then I am now.  I also want to start running again and have a driveway built for hill repeats.  My goal is to be able to run up that driveway 10 times without stopping. Things to work towards. 

I'm excited. I want to get back to where I was when I had time to do everything. That is my ultimate goal.
