A Little Encouragement is All You Need

I did it! I made it to 1.2 miles today thanks to a text from K explaining she couldn’t make it tonight but that I could do this! I ended up doing what seemed like a really long run (not walk kiddos, a RUN!) using my Wii Active. I ran and ran and ran, dripping sweat, turning bright red but I did it. I created another workout that incorporated lots of running, a cooling down walk and those ever stupid kick ups.

Once done I threw myself on my couch, Googled how many laps equal a mile on Wii Active and actually found the answer. I love me some Google! Technically I did over 1.2 miles. . .and my legs are killing me as well as my tush.

But having that little bit of encouragement allowed me to ignore the excuses of not exercising. And the best part is I will sleep like a baby tonight. Tomorrow will be a mixed bag of sorts with boxing, dancing and some tennis thrown in. I have had this silly game for, umm, a couple of years now and finally got tired of the flab and taking advantage of my Wii.

And just to add to the little love fest I have going with my Wii, I tried Netflix a few years ago and even tried it again when they started streaming movies online but gave it up since I had a million movie channels and quite frankly didn’t want to watch everything on my computer. Last month I got an offer to try it again (the first I have ever seen for former customers) and decided to try it since I have the Wii.

I have watched all kinds of movies from my younger days and am thoroughly enjoying it. Somehow I goofed up and updated my address the day after I signed up, then went out of town, got back and realized I had never received my DVD. After about a week of not calling Netflix I called today. Besides the rep being so very kind about the goof on my part, he sent another disc out today and extended my free trial by ten days. Now that is customer service people! I am so used to Comcast and their horrible service that I was preparing to have to replace the lost disc as well as lose out on ordering DVDs.

And now I need to figure out how to move without gasping to the shower so I can collapse in my bed shortly. Fat rolls beware! I am coming after you and yes I will win the war!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
