Kick in the pants.

Maybe it is the mild weather we are having lately, maybe it is the grass trying so desparately to peak through the snow. The sky has been so clear and blue. I have a new playlist full of surprisingly mood lifting music. (nothing like listening to Julie Andrews and the original cast singing Do Re Mi while working away on my laptop in the local coffee shop) All of this has inspired me and motivated me to take my health a little more serious. I have been going to SFL for almost a year and have sabotaged myself more than once. I am only half way to my goal (35 to go). While I feel great and apparently look younger at 40 than I did at 30. I need to give myself a kick start and take charge.
Well today is the day I got that proverbial kick in the pants. Weighing in today was not nice. I felt ashamed, like I had let my coach down, myself down. The scales have very slowly gone the wrong direction over the last couple of months. I think I was celebrating Christmas a bit too long.
Today is a new day. I feel fresh, rejuvenated and ready to take charge. Back to the treadmill and weights for me. For the record, my treadmill is just that, a treadmill - not a clothes rack or a shelf of sorts. I actually use it and wouldn't even think of parting with it.
So charge up the ipod and fill the water bottle, time to get movin'

“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.”~Theodore Roosevelt


  1. Hey Ann, cool blog. I am a fellow NB blogger who grew up spending my summers in Quispamsis. I just started a movie review blog, feel free to check it out here:
