The Big Deal

Okay, everyone.

I've made a deal with myself.

I've decided to get back into exercising.

I've finally convinced myself that I am sufficiently recovered from giving birth to Russell 14 years ago, and now my body is ready to exercise.


I love Leslie Sansone. Maybe I've said that on here before, forgive me if I have, my brain has taken a permanent hiatus......but anyway, I do her Walk Away the Pounds videos, the 1, 2, and 3 mile ones from a few years ago. LOVE THEM! It's a lot of fun and actually a really, really good workout. You know it's a good workout if you are sweating afterwards!

Anyway, I decided that I was going to exercise every day.

Every. Single. Day.

Well, except Sunday.

And I really want to lose 15 lbs.....But I have a weakness: Blended Big Trains.

*Be still my beatin' heart*

My weakness was NOT helping me with losing the weight.

So I had to resort to drastic measures.....

Cut out the Big Trains, baby.

Ahem, back to the subject of this post: The Deal I Made With Myself...right.

"Self (I says to me...yep, I talk to myself, but at least I admit it!), enough of this having a Big Train every day! Here it is, straight up: If you exercise every day, Monday thru Friday, you may have a Big Train on Friday!"

Myself agreed.

I worked out three days last week, 2 days the week before, and this week, today will be my fourth day this week!

I can just taste the icy, frosty Kona goodness cascading down my throat!

Beloved Big Train, here I come!!!!

Sounds like a good deal. I hope yourself appreciates the deal and is able to stick with it. :)

OK, now I'm wondering what a big train is? - I'm sure it's delicious though!
Well done for starting exercising - LOL at your 14 yrs post 1st baby comment - I can completely relate!
Hope you stick with your deal.
By the way I talk to myself as well!

I was doing so good and now that summer is here, I have not exercised in weeks! Arrrr! You and I should be accountability partners. We could Facebook each other on the days we exercise!? I need something to motivate me. Obviously swimsuit season isn't cuttin' it! :o) Have fun and enjoy that Big Train!

Good for you! Sadly my only exercise is the 'I chase toddlers' routine.
