The Eyes are Watching . . .

Lake Mendota, Madison WI

Ever since I started this blog, I've been under the awareness that what I write is set in stone.  I am starting to feel like I am writing all of my feelings, making all these claims, but not living up to what I set out to do way-back-when.

I used to get up at 5 a.m. and put in a rigorous exercise routine about 5-6 times a week.  Over the last few months, those days have been getting smaller.  To the point where I've only exercised once a week.  When I wanted to get back to my normal routine, this "phantom" pain set in.  After a full day yesterday, the pain is gone.  A good night's rest last night, and I woke up at 5 a.m. and got onto the treadmill for a 45 minute walk.  I feel invigorated.  I feel renewed and recommitted.  However, I am also aware that I am writing off the endorphin high that came along with that workout.

From today on, I will be getting up at 5 a.m. everyday to do an exercise routine to start my day.  And I am even talking about Saturday and Sunday.  Crazy pants?  Yes, I agree.  But I am no where nearing my goal of losing 5 lbs this month.  I've actually gained.  So crazy pants ideas will have to do.  And I know that you will be watching me and rooting for my progress. 


  1. Good for you and your commitment to exercise...I'm totally inspired!

  2. You can do it!! I bet you can even surpass your weight goal if you do the routine like you said. Rooting for you...
