Just Do It. Just Dance

Look Better Naked By Apr 22, 2012 5 Comments

The hardest part about working out is working out. Getting the gear on, the mat out,  the DVD cued up, the sneakers on and out of the front door was just so damned hard. It’s not that I want to to be out of shape, it’s just that I want to be able to eat cookies and ice cream while getting in shape.

I swear I’ve come up with every excuse in the book for why I did and did not exercise only to be caught in that shame spiral that makes me feel bad about being out of shape. All of the tricks I tried to do didn’t work: paying myself a dollar per workout, adding a stone to the jar.

Those Caramel deLites are just so yummy!

This morning I decided to just dance. I may be off beat, out of rhythm and some other things that would have made The Bee cringe had she been present but I did it.

Not quite like Elaine, but well. Almost.



I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.

    Hello again.
    Just visited your other blog. I’m stopping by from the Post A-Z Road Challenge.

    Seinfeld is one of my favorite sitcoms! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the reruns. I love to sing and dance. I’m a bit of a showoff (smile) & love to keep myself fit. We are fortunate to have a Total Gym at home, so I can get my workout done in just a few minutes. The nice thing about the Total Gym is that I can exercise in my pajamas! I workout first thing in the morning for 10-15 mins, then I’m done. I don’t have to worry about it when I get home because I know I’ll be too tired. Rather than spending money to go to the gym, invest in a total gym. They sell them on QVC & most of the time they are on Easy Pay, so you don’t have to pay all the money up front. We’ve had ours for about 8 years now and I never tire of it. If dancing is what you love to do, dance to anything. Dance when you’re doing the ironing, the dishes, vacuuming…if you’re persistent and determined, you will soon start noticing a difference. Of course you have to eat right too. Be good to yourself. Wishing you all the best. Thanks for sharing.

    Don’t forget to join the second Blog Hop Saturday! on June 2nd. I’ll be hosting. Invite your friends and join me…should be a lot of fun!
