The Torture Chamber…

I had a near death experience Friday night. I went shopping for clothes. I would rather die then shop for clothes again any time soon.

My black pants have developed a tear in the side seam that can’t just be mended. I needed to see if I could find some new black slacks. Oh my God. Nothing fits any more. I was doing so good this summer with my Resolution Project. I was getting buff, working hard. Drinking water, cutting out caffeine. Now I’ve slid completely back to where I started. Bah.

So one more thing to add to the list this week. Must work out at least 3-4 times a week, if not more. Period, no questions asked, no excuses. Working late doesn’t count for anything – there is no point in it if I am personally suffering. The weather is cooling, so if nothing else I can start walking again.

Someone kick me if I’m slacking off, ok? Thanks for looking out for me.

I wish you lived nearby because I need additional motivation. Having someone else to work out with or even go for a walk with is such a good thing. I wish you luck with your workout and I’m going to start on mine too!

The new job has a gym at the office, with showers and everything. Since we’re open 24/7, so is it. How cool is that? No gym fees! It’s convenient (where I work); It’s free and it’s only used by fellow techno flabbies, no hard bodies to intimidate me. Oh wait, now that means I have no more excuses. Darn it. 😉

I’m right there with you – I’m now on the “do something every day” plan, because if I alternate, I put it off. And there is nothing worse than making progress, and then seeing it all get eaten away (no pun intended).

Walking is the best! If you’re ever southwest and up for a walk give me a call. I think it’s the best of both worlds, in that it has all the benefits of (light) exercise and is incredibly relaxing as well.

Yeah, I share that sentiment – I’ve cut back on my walking because I spent so much time standing at work, but I really miss my walks. I think I’ll have to force myself to start again tonight. 🙂
