getting fit and clean

I was actually able to walk this morning. It was freezing butt cold, but it still felt GREAT. I am pretty sure at this point my man is winning out little contest. He has a road bike. He bought a trainer to ride it in the house. I bought two exercise videos this week. My Man rode his bike 3 times and I only worked out once. So I am sure he is ahead. Back to the exercise videos. I look like the biggest uncoordinated dork doing those things. We have sliding glass doors in our den and the whole time I am punching, running, sliding, and all that jazz I can see my reflection in those doors. I began to have flash backs to college when I took Jazzercise and was always hanging out on the last row. Sometimes even making a back row of my own just so I would not be such a distraction missing all the steps and fumbling around the place. My roommate, CoCo and I bought this workout video that taught a dance routine. She doesn't look it, but I think she is half Canadian. She picked up the routine the first time. After 20 attempted trys, I still sucked. I can throw down some free style dance, but coordinated structured moves, my body wigs out. CoCo is the best dancer I know. She once entered a dance contest with a stranger, 70 year old man in fact, on a whim and they won the whole thing. Honestly I used to have this secret dream/fantasy that I could be a singer and a dancer. I never wanted to be famous I just wish I could be really really good at both.

OKay, off that tangent. My man is out of town for the day and my house is nasty. My "Karen" was a no show this week. Boo-Hoo. So that means look out, I am doing an overhaul today. I think I will borrow my Grandma's vacuum. It's a Kirby. The motor of that thing could be compared to a semi. I have to be careful, legos and pollys don't have a chance of escaping once it is on the ground.

Time to get my lazy b.o.b. up and get moving.

That is hillarious! I will not take any classes at the gym because I swear I have two left feet. I used to be able to dance good, but something happened between 25 and 30 and now it's like Pee Wee Herman style. Have fun cleaning. Doing the same here!

Right there with you on the classes at the gym!
No worries - we still manage to get that "fitness model" look without having to show our lack of rhythm :)
