Are you in!?

You know how sometimes, you’re just feeling blah?

You’re tired, cranky, not eating well, not getting enough exercise or movement into your day. Not drinking enough water, drinking TOO MUCH coffee/tea/soda.

I’m there.

And I’m feeling it. And seeing it!

My skin looks awful, the circles under my eyes are vicious, I’m tired, I spent much of last night bursting into tears over absolutely nothing. My husband and kids are having to tip-toe around me because I’m some sort of physical, mental and emotional wreck.

And I *HATE* it.

Here’s the deal – I’m not overweight, but I am out of shape. My eating habits stink, because I’m that girl that can eat anything and not gain weight, so I do. And then I want to be all surprised that I don’t feel like a million bucks! Duh, Megan! You’re fueling your body with junk, you don’t exercise regularly, you are going to get from it what you put into it.

I was going to the gym for a while a couple of years ago, and it was great. Except for the part where I had to get up at some ridonkulous hour of the morning to go so that I could be home to get everyone up for work/school. That was fine until the busiest part of tax season hit, and I wasn’t leaving work until midnight (or later) and sleep won. Then, I blew a disk in my back and was scared to do anything.

Now? My back is feeling pretty good, I know I need to do this, and so, you all are gonna be my “gym buddies” – holding me accountable for sticking with this over the 30 days.

And maybe even joining me, if you so choose! (You don’t have to share all of it with us if you don’t want to!)

I’m going to join my blogging friend Julia in her 30 Day Challenge, which will be kicking off soon. Sign up with me right over here at her Mom Workout of the Day blog (and give it a follow – she posts quick, easy at home workouts each day to help you feel better, even without doing the challenge!)

So – who’s in!?

  1. I've been trying to ramp up the exercise lately too. I got a pedometer from which gives you 60 points per 10,000 steps. I haven't been hitting 10,000 steps every day, but I've been getting 4 or 5 days a week, which is better than I had before. They also have a bracelet that awards 60 points per half hour of exercise. It takes a while to earn enough points for anything, but between this and MyPoints, I'm going to be able to get $55 towards GameStop and a refurbished Xbox Kinect so I can keep this up during winter too.

  2. awesome megan! thanks for doing a whole post about it!! i know how you feel when you're just doing everything wrong. but when you take time for yourself, it's so worth it!
