The first thing I want to say about this photo is that despite the fact that there is clearly an excess of pant leg material bunched around my ankles, I did not take this photo while sitting on the toilet. In fact, most of my pants bunch in this unfortunate way on account of I am five foot and a half (don't be forgetting the half).
The other thing I want to say is that those are my runners and by wearing them, I am indicating to the world my intention to exercise.
I joined a new gym. Quit my membership at my other gym that was a 15 minute drive away and joined this gym that I could walk to in less time (disclaimer: I do not plan to ever walk there. Duh! I have a car, see?).
The key to maintaining an exercise routine is to remove all possible obstacles that get in the way of actually doing the exercise. Distance was the big one for me. Distance and time – and the gym that is 15 minutes away eats into this precious commodity of which there is never enough.
Actually, the biggest obstacle to my regular exercise is the kids but it seems society still frowns on leaving a 5-year-old in charge while Mumma is away "feeling the burn."
Enough with excuses. Enough with distance and time. I need this time out. I need to feel better than I currently do.
My head is a mess lately. Not sure if you can tell. But it is. So messy. So I'm starting with my body instead.
