May I just say

What a freaking rockstar I am??   Let me explain..... I've had the May issue of Shape Magazine laying around for a couple of weeks now. It's this one:

A blogger is a success story... Ellen, although crazy, is someone I admire a bit. I like her attitude on life in general but her perkiness and weird sense of humor sometimes drive me crazy...Anyway.....

This one has been laying around the house, I pick it up and read a little then put it back down...you know...I think in some ways I was avoiding it...who knows.... So the other night I picked it up and stumbled across this workout in their workout express section. It's an interval workout that combines cardio and strength. I read it over and thought it looked pretty good though a little easy, but I'd give it a try. I only have 30 minutes in the morning to workout and I was really looking for something that would be fast and efficient. So on Thursday I tried it for the first time. May I just say...OMFG!!! I thought I was going to throw up!! It is a brutal workout and just exactly what I was looking for. I only got about 1/2 way through it the first time...Yikes!!! Friday I did it again and got all the way through but I had to tone it down just a touch. Nevertheless, by the time I was done I was dripping sweat and limp as a noodle. Totally cool!! Last night I was thinking that I want to do this workout every morning but I know better then to do the same workout consistently. Then, literally in the middle of the night, it hit me - change the strength moves. By changing the strength moves I won't be working the same muscles every day and can a good, total body workout. So this morning I switched it up and once again....OMFG!!! It was brutal and I thought I was going to cry. I love it. So that is definitely one piece of the puzzle - a workout I like. I can do this for a couple of weeks and hopefully get in shape enough to do more. I love this workout....love it.... Now I need to work on my food. I think I should be taking vitamins but I don't really know what kind...the last time I took vitamins consistently they were prenatal vitamins...of course those are pretty good...Anyway, working on the food is next on my hit list....

Success when I'm not looking

This is true, especially for me. I try to stay on the straight path, but life doesn't always like the straight path. Life throws thin...
