Exercise and PJ’s go together, really!
Yesterday went alright. I did, in fact, stay in my pj’s most of the day, but I also did our meal-planning for the week, and exercised while I watched Desperate Housewives. Adam and I made a mutual decision to hold off on grocery shopping until we know what his work schedule will be like for the week.
In my efforts with BLD, I’m trying to move my butt more. I’ve started getting my tush off the couch to do little mini-workouts while I watch TV in the evenings – sit ups, squats, push ups, that sort of thing. The old-school exercises that whipped me into shape when I was playing basketball in high school. I’ve been doing old barre exercises in the shower, too, playing with combinations of the exercises we used to do when I danced. When in doubt, go with what you know, right?
I’m already feeling a little stronger, a little more energized, and remembering how much I love the muscle burn that comes the day after hard work. I’m getting ready to really step up the exercise when I shift to BLD Phase 2 on January 13th – the same day a new challenge starts in one of the 3FC forums I frequent. I’ll write more about the shift to Phase 2 over the course of this week, to explain what will be changing for me.
My cousin Laura, whose name pops up from time to time in the comments (hi sweetie!), was telling me about her motivational timeline the other day, and I might just have to copy her idea. We’ve also been talking about doing the Grouse Grind together; Laura and her friend are doing a cross-Canada adventure this summer, and should be out this way in the summer. That would be a great “date” with the two of them, and knock off one of my 2008 goals, which is conveniently also one of my 101 in 1001 goals!
Baby steps, right?
