Buckeye in Bama

Rambling thoughts of a Yankee transplanted to the south.

The Fun (Not!) of Being Weighed

Today started our “Scale Back Alabama” campaign. All of us who are participating had to weigh in. I knew this weigh in was going to happen today. I ate my last strawberry, white chocolate cupcake from Fresh Market on Sunday. Getting on a scale is one of my favorite things to do.. NOT!! I do not think anyone likes to weigh themselves unless they like self-inflicted torture.

I have been stagnant in the exercise department since I moved south. I have done nothing but watch television and work. I would make a most excellent police detective with all of my television viewing! Do they hire arm-chair or couch detectives? Where can I apply?

This past summer was one of my best for health and exercise. I was teaching swim lessons almost daily and outside in the water. Presently, I sit at a desk most of the day and use a computer. My mind might be in good shape, but not the rest of me. Now, I am a blob. I am not sure if I can even swim anymore (just kidding, I know I can float!). Getting back into a workout routine makes me want to crawl under the covers and go to sleep.

I was so into sports. I was active. I know I should exercise. My knees need the workout and I do need to lose weight. It would be better on my heart and joints. I am not trying to be a supermodel, just healthy and not achy all the time. Today, I am whiny… I also should set an example for my children. You need to stay active. You will live a lot longer if you do.  Now, where did I put those tennis shoes…..someone needs to walk 🙂
