*** GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED ***
How rude, Whitners… and I wear it with pride. It’s been forever and months since I last did a giveaway, so here’s your chance to win you some crud. I was recently turned onto this site by a friend. Workout apparel emblazened with the phrase Shut Up and Sweat! Which has pretty much been my dagnabbed motto for the last 2 years. See… all the inventions get taken before I get up off my receptacle and do something about them. Remember that Swiffer Sweeper invention? Totally my brain child… TOTALLY! And while I’m at it, I might as well tell you about my idea for pre-sliced bread. Another one that got away.
Anywho… I was queen of making excuses for why I could not exercise in the past. Sweating is inconvenient! BORING! My arm hairs get irritated when they jiggle too fast! I have eye disease… I couldn’t see myself getting off the couch. And so on and so forth. The thing is there’s always going to be something… ALWAYS. You’re going to be too busy… you’re going to feel too sick… you’re going to have a pimple the size of a tractor trailer. All excuses in the end and all of ’em used as a nice way to get out of having a bit of discomfort. If you don’t exercise at all now… start small. I only could do 5 minutes of slowish walking when I started back at 530 pounds… but it was 5 minutes more than I got in the past… and things totes get easier. The more you work at it, the more conditioned you become until before you know it you’re doing it in your sleep. Okay, that part was totally a lie… who wants to run laps in their nightmares? I reserve my nightmares for things like public speaking whilst nekked and/or marrying Charlie Sheen.
I also find scheduling the exercise into my day insures that I get it done. If I just say, I’ll do it when I get around to it, I don’t do it. Scheduling it during a time of the day that is realistic is KEY. It would be the awesomest if I told myself I’d get up every morning at 5:00 a.m. and whip out a set of kick butt, but that ain’t realistic for me… A.) Because the inventers of the alarm clock also invented the snooze button and 2.) I barely go to bed by 5 in the morning… I don’t do well on ZERO hours of sleep. Unless one of these days I happen to turn into a zombie… then, by all means 5:00 a.m. would be realistic. I’ll let you all know how that goes.
