And, you're probably not surprised at all.
(I say after all,because you've never seen me write about any upcoming half-marathons, or athletic shoe purchases, or even a Zumba class for that matter.)
(Okay, I do think I may have written about a miniscule short tryst with Zumba, but it turned out to be a fleeting infatuation.)
I'm passionate about a lot of things; my family, nesting in my home, red vines, entertaining, scoring a thrifted find, good hair products, and Jim Gaffigan.
But I cannot seem to find an activity in the fitness arena that keeps my interest (or inspires me to get out of bed at oh-dark-thirty to throw on my clothes and shoes) to do on a regular basis.
Oh, what about that beach cruiser bicycle I recently purchased, you ask? I may have already said this, but we are having a record breaking hot summer here, and I am still trying to figure out how to attach the cute vintage crate I have to the back rack. (I am not sure what either of those things have to do with why I am not peddling my way to a biker's bod, but I don't have any other excuses that come to mind.)
The thing is, I am desperate to find my "thing", and sooner than later would be good. I'm seriously considering the latest Water Challenge on Facebook, but I'm not sure writing little things with a sharpie marker on a gallon jug of water will do the trick by itself.
I need reminders, throughout the day, everyday, so when I feel like throwing in the gym towel and ordering a Jimmy John's Deli sandwich because of their trademarked "Freaky fast delivery service", I remember why I need to get out there and do something...anything..physical.
I have a fashion and fitness board on Pinterest, and I gathered some of my favorite quotes that I have saved there. I used my cheesy print program and created some motivation that I can read throughout the day to remind me why I need to take a ride on my bike, and take a break at work and walk.
