Because Endorphines are my Friend!

I am excited to report that I worked out Monday, Wednesday and Thursday so far this week! I plan to work out tonight! I feel great! I am one of those people who feel great after a workout. The back pain that has been driving me nuts for the last several weeks has dissipated. I feel like I am really living!

Because "When they STOP Looking, THAT'S When You Should Worry"

That's what my grandmother used to always tell me when we were doing her shopping. I would get out to get gas or something once in awhile, and I'd get whistled at. I'd blush and try to hide behind the car...anything to not be noticed.

She'd always say, "Krissy, when they stop looking,(whistling, whatever) THAT's when you need to worry."

There is some truth to that. I want to be the kind of wife my husband is proud to introduce to his coworkers or associates. Fitness can only help, right? ;)

Because there is no Food Group made up Entirely of Chocolate.....

Though I act like the main food groups are chocolate, followed by meat, dairy, grains and THEN fruits/vegetables, I don't think that is actually how the food pyramid is supposed to work.

My diet doesn't always find a perfect balance. So I take vitamins. Working out HAS to follow. If I say it enough, the workout will come.....

Because I Can!

I took a walk today, downtown. I had my car, it had gas in it, and it would have been easier to hop in it and take off.

But I didn't. Why? Because it is a beautiful day outside, there are freshly fallen leaves on the sidewalk, and I can walk. So, I walked down the sidewalk, ignored the traffic, and focused on the amazingly blue sky! It's 65 degrees, we won't have many more of these lovely days for the next several months, and I wanted out!

I smiled as I moved along, not caring who saw me looking goofy and was wondering what I was smiling about. The leaves were just as crunchy as I anticipated. The air was crisp and clean, and no one could reach me by phone, fax, or email. I was alone with God in the middle of a bustling city.

It felt great!

Because the Thought of Sticky Arteries Grosses Me Out

Sticky arteries....gross....who needs em?

More on that:

Because I Want to Live Long and Prosper

I have decided to start a blog that is just short posts about getting fit and why I need to make it a priority in my life. I may put stuff in here I read, stuff that comes to mind, stuff that seems to make sense, whatever. I figure some days I'll post, some days I won't. Some days I'll go in to great detail, sometimes I'll drop a quote and run.

But I want to be able to look back on this blog and find inspiration. I want to remind myself that I have fitness goals, and why I've bothered making them.

Like looking in the mirror and doing "self talk...." It may sound hokey, but it just might work! ;)
