You wonder why I subject myself to intense scrutiny when I’m obviously not on board with Fitness Friday? I really am on-board. I might be gaining weight and choosing unwisely (is that a word?), but I’m aware. I won’t say I’m going about getting fit the right way–yet. But I’m thinking about it much more than I ever have. In fact, Tuesday I joined the gym!
I plan to begin going next week, and have already bribed my kids with some free-play basketball if they go quietly into the room for children. They hate the room already, but I think the free-play just might work. I even made an appointment for an orientation with a trainer. Wahoo!
Now I just have to dig out some clothes that will work. Do I even own a pair of tennis shoes? Oh, yes, from 1990. (You think I’m kidding? I bought them right after I graduated from high school. They’re back in style now. Can tennis shoes go “bad,” like produce?)
You laugh–but one day I’m going to have my wedding dress cleaned and renew my vows in it. Because I will eat healthy and stay active. And I will be exactly the size God made me to be.
Oops! I almost forgot to comment on the whole shopping thing. Well, maybe first in order should be some new tenners and work-out clothes. Lol.
As for what I’d like to fit in–I’d like to get back to wearing my long, flowing linen shirts and pants without feeling like a giant marshmallow. And I’d like to not look six months pregnant (you think I’m kidding?!) in my swimsuit. I’d like to fit in a new beautiful tankini. There you go. (Of course my alter-ego is saying, “You were a perfect size 8 when you got married–shouldn’t you want that?! But no, alter-ego, I’ve birthed four healthy chilluns’ and I’m not going to torture myself. Shush your mouth!)
