Workout day 1

Sorry there will be no pics on this post..
I worked out today!!! 
Why all excited you ask? 
Well, I have been sitting here watching the pounds pile on for the last five months while I was on leave. 
I didn't eat any more than usual but being injured made me less active than I have ever been in my life.
I have always been pretty active doing my day to day stuff - which equals walking at least 5 miles everyday.
But I have never actually had to workout a day in my life. Until now...
Being thin and in shape came naturally to me..always did.
But somewhere around 33 ye ole metabloism kicked in... or slowed down I should say.
So this morning, my knee was feeling pretty good and I walked a mile!! 
Followed by 100 situps, leg throws, and calf raises. 
I am going to do this twice a day from now on.
With Sunday being the exception..even God rested on the Sabbath. 
Well, wish me luck..
p.s. I will publish pics of my end result.. but until then you will have to use your imagination...lol


  1. Good for you starting a work out. I so need to do it with you. I keep talking about it but never take the action I need to.
    I know you can do it you are a strong person and can stick to this.
    Take care and don't over do it

  2. good luck girl!
    I joined too.. these thighs of mine are a little too jiggly...
    Pray for me too!

  3. Getting started is the hardest part, and you've already conquered that part.

    Good for you! :-)


  4. Oh, go you good thing! Glad the knee is getting better and have fun with the workouts! I hve added a Friday morning weight and cardio class to my week, starting this week- eeek!!!

  6. Good luck! I know you can do it!

  7. love the new look here! I too need to get this winter stuff off of me...where o where do I begin?? If only worrying about it would do some of the melting I'd be thin as a rail!

  8. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. No wait! Let's make that A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step! Yeah, that's the one!

    Anyway, good for you!!!

  9. Oh.... I'm so jealous... I think about working out and that's as far as I get...
