Comfort Zone

I'm fat... back to weighing 20 or so pounds more than I'd like.
I'm gray... we haven't seen the sun in days (and days!) and my face is beginning to look like a piece of meat with freezer burn.
I get out of breath bending over to tie my sneakers because I'm fat, haven't been out in the sun in what seems like an eternity, and gave up walking two months ago when the snow/rain/gray started.
I'm also realizing that you are now looking at part of the problem...
The most exercise I get these days seems to be when I have to reach the extra distance to either the "shift" key or the "enter" key.
I'm spending hours per day online, diddling around between Facebook, MSN Instant Messenger, email, blogs, or news outlets.

Here's a delayed New Year's resolution:
Less time on the internet.
More time exercising.
Lucy the Schnoodle seems happy with my intentions.

I know how you feel, I'm lucky if I can reach my shoes!
Not much outdoor activity and getting tired of GRAY! Need to see the sun, will help my attitude.

Hey! Less time on the internet means less you for the rest of us. While I applaude your desire to get moving, I am not at all happy about the outcome!

Good for you!!

Gym time is one of the most important times of my day. i do admit it takes about 2 hours out of my day when I could also be on the internet.
I hate it when I go, but LOVE it when I'm done...my wife likes the results too, which is also a bonus :)
