And so it begins, the annual decision to “get in shape”. Motivated by a family reunion in June and desire to keep up with my athletic husband I am again on the workout wagon.
Please you guys, take a moment to laugh along with me as I share my journey with you! Working out at home, with extremely affectionate ￼dogs, is not for the faint of heart￼￼ or the pretty gym girls.
It is filled with dodging the piles of clean and dirty laundry￼￼, wondering if I should vacuum the floor first or just embrace the dog hair, and a sincere desire to take all of the other distractions that have stopped me in the past ￼and put a pin in them.
They can all wait a couple of hours ￼so that I might be able ￼￼to achieve my goal.
Here it is folks, day one!
