There's got to be a Monday after ....
Once again it's time to face reality (not just the fact that a man isn't going to show up scantily clad with a cup o'joe in hand). I need to drop the extra weight I'm toting around on my carcass. WGN Morning Show has Dr. Ian Smith as their health and fitness expert. I LOVE HIM! I've been hooked on Celebrity Fit Club on VH1 since it started. It's not just that the D-list celebs are fun to laugh at, but Dr. Ian gives sound advice that I've decided to start taking. On WGN there is a 4-day Diet club and it's working. REAL people giving testimony to the success of the program. I'm a real person. What's ironic is shortly after today's segment, there was a report that film maker Kevin Smith was ejected from a flight on Southwest Airlines. While I'm not as rotund as Mr. Smith, I do fear being the butt of fat jokes when my back is turned or not being able to move about in the lavatory of an airplane due to the junk in my trunk.
As part of my quest to be bodacious, another Valentine gift purchased was EA Sport Active for the Wii. I might as well get some use out of that game system, too. I'm anxious for warm weather to greet us so Mancub and I can get outside on our bikes. That along with power walking that I find so cleansing and freeing.
I know in the past there've been other promises to lose weight; get healthy. each time I've seen minimal success and failed. But just like every other aspect of life, I get up. Dust myself up and start all over again.
