The time has arrived.

ENOUGH ALREADY!!! It has finally happened. I have become one with my couch. And it's not a good look.

Yes, tough day, eat ice cream. Yes, visited Mom, brought home more laundry, eat pizza. WHAT.EVER!

Got on the treadmill today. I want to see my elbows again, I want to be able to walk up a flight of stair
s without getting winded and I want to be around to see any grandchildren I may have, if either of my children choose to "spawn" one day. My daughter's word, not mine.

Suffice it to say I cannot sit.all.the.time and expect to be healthy. I am not making any promises, haven't had some great epiphany, just need to say it out loud.

Because really, exercise is the answer to everything. Depression, weight gai
n, heart health, type 2 diabetes, and more - not to mention self image and confidence.

I don't expect to look like I did 30 years ago, my goals are more realistic. But good God I never expected to be a slug! My inactivity has been worse since my mom got here but really, that's no excuse. There is plenty of time to hop (like I hop!) on the treadmill for 20 minutes (at least) most days, it's just making myself do it.

I'm going to try. That's where it starts.

**I WANT that treadmill.

I wish you luck. But that treadmill...I can barely manage to walk with TV on, much less try to do anything else. I would end up in traction or something. LOL.

LOL! 5 screens too! That's what I call real multi-tasking!
