In which i gotta work harder


Ugghhh… I just got back from spinning and it’s apparent that I haven’t been working out hard enough.  I mean, I pretty much work out daily (except when I’m in Vermont) but I don’t always kill myself.  Let me rephrase that: I rarely kill myself.


I used to spin 4 times a week or so and now I just spin on Tuesday and Thursday and do other cardio or Pilates on the alternate days.  Apparently, this isn’t working.  First of all, I’ve gained weight and I’m bound and determined to get some of it off and second of all, I just did a spin class and I was huffing and puffing.


What that means to me is that I work out but I don’t work out very hard.  It kind of sucks because I just want to go through my routine and not deal with this bullshit but apparently, as you age, things just get more difficult.


I personally think that sucks.  Shouldn’t you just get better and better as you age? I think you should … I don’t mean personally or professionally or emotionally, I mean physically.  As I was with my in-laws this weekend and realized that eventually walking and sleeping and perhaps even peeing would get difficult, I told Kevin to just kill me in a few years … or months … or days.


Well, maybe not in a few days, that would certainly fuck my kids up but soon thereafter.


So, I’ve decided to start working out harder again so that by the time I go on vacation at Christmas I won’t mind putting on a bathing suit.  That means I’ll actually have to pay attention to what I eat and hopefully I can do that for two months.  We shall see huh?


Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to figure out ways to be creative.  Now that all my kids only need me for the occasional “pep talk” or “bitch session” I figure I should find something to do all day other than play on my iPad, especially now that I’ve beaten Candy Crush.  OH YEAH!!! 440 levels!!!!


People always say to me “oh well you have your blog” likes it’s some 40 hours/week job.  Hahaha … this thing barely takes any of my time (I’m sure you can tell I really don’t proof it and I don’t really give a shit what I write about) and although I somewhat enjoy it it’s not enough.


And painting? I like that but I have too many here already so the alternative is to actually make enough to sell or just give them away or something.  I don’t know … I got bored thinking about it.


So I supposed I’ll just go work out a bit harder and keep writing all this random bullshit and we shall see what we shall see right?


Sorry this was so boring but actually, I’m not.  That’s what you get.

    I can’t believe you have beat all 440 levels of Candy Crush. I’m still stuck on 181. :(

    I’m sure you will find something to do with your free time.
