Requiem for a Gym...

Like the 6 billion other people in the world, I am sucker! I made New Years resolutions.

1. Stop Smoking- Done! I am not a smoker anyhow. I never set the bar to high for myself that way I know that I can't fail!

2. Save More money- which I will start doing next month. I think I said that last month... but most defintely next month... I did however see a cute pair of shoes on sales at Nordstrom's. That is considered saving... right?

3. Lose weight.

So I got the ball rolling last summer on the whole losing weight thing when I joined weight watchers. Well, that has taken me only so far. I have discovered that I can maintain my weight really well but not at the weight that I want to be. I still have 15 pounds to go. The next step was to join a gym and that is what I did. I join our local rec center and began "to work out" and discovered a few things.

1. I have gotten my butt kicked, I laughed my butt off and I have walked my butt off. So somebody please explain to me: WHY DO I STILL HAVE THIS MASSIVE BUTT???????? For crying out loud, I mean, I am sitting on king sized pillows for a derrière.
2. God is the coolest artist I have ever seen!!!! It is amazing the different body types there are out there. The different ways our bodies take shape is brilliant. There is a uniqueness to all of us. As I made this discovery, it reminded me of a " The Far Side comic". See below:
I figure my big problem is; that while God was creating me, he had some extra clay left over. Waste not, want not; as our parent told us.... so he slaped it on my toosh!

3. Hey, Twiggy! Yeah, you know who I am talkin to!!! Do the rest of us a favor and eat a brownie or a hot fudge sundae! Please, you ain't helpin my self esteem much.

So that is what I have discovered so far.... if I learn anymore, I will make sure to pass it along.
