LIB

Okay, I've been a bad LIBer.  Bad, bad, horible bad.  I've gained 3.5 pounds since we started.  In truth, my heart was in it to begin with, but then my mod from hell came around and I lost all motivation.  I'm now a few weeks past my mod from hell, but still haven't found a lot of motivation.  Today, however, I went for a walk with the rest of the Education team and it was fabulous!  I did realize that as much as I love the elliptical machine, it does nothing for the anterior tibialis muscles (shin muscles), which were killing me on our short, thirty minute walk.

There's no way I am going to win this LIB challenge with all of the fabulous women who are actually doing it and losing weight, but I'm not going to give up.  Not at all; I just know that I have to make my health a priority, the college isn't going to fall apart if I leave my desk for a thirty minute walk every day.  I might even re-start my Wednesday Weigh-ins.

I've got stuff I want to do this summer and being healthier would make them all more enjoyable.

Nothing like a little springtime to rev up an exercise regimen. . .I hate gym machines. I'll take a walk in the fresh air anyday! You go, GunDiva! (And thanks for the email the other day).

It's the not giving up part that will make you a winner!

Anything is better than nothing. Anything you can do regular is better than anything else. Walking is the cheapest and easiest way to exercise. It's also a great way to clear your head of things.

You'll get there. Don't give up.
It is so hard to find the motivation to get moving but once you do, you'll be so happy.
