I have been in a place where all the planet were aligned. I had the time, I had the weather, and I had the things I needed to proceed. I even had the will, but for whatever reason did not begin.
I am talking about getting into shape. When I was in my teens, I had the cutest little figure. Of course at the time, I thought I had no shape. I look at the pictures now and I was looking pretty good.
Then, I got married and started to eat a little more and since I moved away from NYC, the pounds started to add. In NYC, you walked everywhere. I could eat and I had a healthy appetite. I never worried about counting calories.
Little did I know, that I had a very low metabolism.
I started to add to my family and with that came the extra pounds. My weight would go up and down on the scale for the years.
I can now go to the gym without guilt. I do not have little children running around who need me. I have great weather where I can start to walk and maybe if I get in better shape I will try running. I also have zumba tapes for when it is raining. I love to dance. Hell, they do it on Dancing with the Stars and Kirstie Alley looks amazing.
Yet I havent done anything.
Well, that is going to change. I was talking with my grandson, Josiah. He has turn into a little jabber jaw. I love to hear him talk.
Josiah loves to talk about shapes. He will tell me what shape things are and then proceed to tell me a story about the object.
He first talked about a triangle and then a circle. Josiah then looks at me and said :your face it is a circle. It is round."
I laughed out loud and said " yes, Josiah, my face is a circle."
If my 4 year old grandson can tell me I am fat without meaning to hurt my feelings, I need to start a program and right quick. I can't have another generation see me this way.
But first, I will eat my last donut. I'll burn it off tomorrow!! I know I need help.
