Who wants to join me?

Part of what I'm trying to do is get over my fear of exercise.

Yep.  You read that right. FEAR of exercise.  I hated PE, was uncoordinated until much later in life, and grew up in a climate where girls did not play sports or do anything considered less than "feminine."

I also had a very fearful mother who spent a lot of time worrying about "wearing out" or "messing up" her own body.

This year, one of my goals is to move more and strengthen my body.  It's a temple, you know, and it needs to be cared for.


So how about this?  Honestly, I don't know that I can even do 10 sit-ups, but I can try.  And I do a little bit each day until I can do more.

It might not be february - but I'm totally going to do this. I started WW last summer and I've kind of plateaued, so I'm trying to get back into the swing of it.

Ha! Well, I think I got through about 3 days of this. Maybe.

Life has been just absolutely chaotic. I'm going to try this again. Let's do this thing.
