Confessions from the Couch (and Your Upcoming Week)

Credit

Well, my Dahlings, look how far we have come together! We are going into Week 4 of our Fitting in Fitness Challenge and let me tell you, I am feeling my inner child continue to rebel. I have to tell the truth, I skipped yesterday, because I knew today was off and I figured I would fit my fitness in, on my off day. Currently, it is 6:25 PM Sunday, and I have been glued to this seat at Panera, for the past couple hours writing and enjoying some sweet alone time; Which in reality means, that when I get home, I will be getting acquainted with my wall for Wall Sits followed by Lunges and I can already feel my hip objecting and my inner child saying but it's dark, i.e. REST time. However, my Inner Coach will crack the whip and that is all there is to it...suck it up time. So, the take home is... I prefer my exercise in the daylight hours. The objections and excuses get OH, SO much louder when it is approaching the Couching Hour. You say, Coach, I say Couch...I know, sad but true. I just think the voice of my inner lazy child has gotten more action the past few years than my inner athletic child. As a matter of fact I think my inner lazy child snuffed out the inner athlete child. But anyhoo...I am here for you and pushing through. Getting it done. Setting no records, taking no hostages.

Which reminds me of a story I think you might enjoy this week, about my Pilates Mat training for certification and how I had to "practice" on my husband. Oh, precious memories, I tell you! Or about my Cardio Ball class and how I practiced that on my hubby as well...Or about... Oh never mind, my Hubby is a good sport with all of my experimental endeavors, I have to say.

How are you battling the Lazies? How are you doing with the challenge? WHAT?
You still haven't started? OK, NOW is the time. RIGHT now. Jump in, no looking back- you've got this.
