Health Nut, I am not.

Why do I hate working out so much. I just hate it.

I have no excuse because I have an exercise machine in my home, but I just dislike it. I dislike it as much as I dislike mustard and clapping. And that is a lot, my friend.

But, in order to lose weight, I must walk on that dasterdly treadmill. So, like everything in my life, I will track my exercise and health on my blog. No, I won't reveal my weight because that would be far to self-depricating, but I will tell you that I had three girl scout cookies and I am ashamed. Shame on me for enjoying those Caramel Delights/Samoas so much. I should just throw them in the garbage, but they are special. They only come around once a year and fortunately/unfortunately for me, I have 12 little girls that want nothing better than to sell cookies to their teacher.

So, I am saying right here, right now. I am giving my Girl Scout cookies away. Bold move, but needed. I am so good about stocking my house with only acceptable food, but when I am on the outside, I am a sucker for temptations.

Today, when I was brainstorming ideas about myself as I modeled an acrostic poem, I had to list things that I enjoy. I asked my students, most who had me in third grade as well as fourth, what I really enjoyed. The first answer...."food." Right on, my young...very honest minds.

I don't want to fall for the whole, "Life is short, eat." Not that there is anything wrong with being more voluptuous. I actually prefer myself heavier than my skinniest, but I know I can be a healthier person. I know that I can drink more water. Eat less junk. Exercise even though I hate it. I feel better when I do. I don't feel my bum shoulder as much. My hip doesn't hurt as much. So, that is it. Tomorrow is a new day. I need to change the QUOTE of the Week to illustrate my new found love of health and exercise....does that sound convincing?

You go girl! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, blogger was acting up!

I hate exercise and refuse. I just mow the lawn, garden, clean house, etc. I try to stay active...to a degree. In the winter, we walk on the lake :)

I love food too. It consumes me! :)

Love the vocab again. I'd love it even more if you'd add a sentence with the word in it.

Eschew...hmmm. He eschewed me? LOL. I'm still clueless! I have always had a poor vocab -- since tested in 5th grade.

Sara - had to comment, not on the health kick, but on your sidebar. Love the Dr. Seuss quote, love Damien Rice, love lyrics (almost more than music), and love scrapbooking. Good stuff all around. :)

Sara - I hate mustard too. If only it was as unhealthy as girl scout cookies. We'd be well on our way.
