It's been too long

Since I've posted.  I was just cleaning my room and thinking about excuses to give you and BELIEVE ME I'm good at coming up with excuses and even better at convincing myself that they are valid.

I've been busy, sure.  I've been traveling, sure.  I've been emotional, SURE.  But I've also been lazy.  I've also been taking the easy way out.

But now it's getting warmer, and my pants are getting tighter, and its time for a change.  It just so happens that my office is putting together a little 30 Minutes for 30 Days Challenge - obviously challenging my co-workers to exercise for 30 minutes a day for 30 days - I'm taking this challenge but putting a little twist on it, I'm going to work out every MORNING for 30 days, for the entire month of April.

I know a lot of people work out in the mornings, and that really it's not that big of a deal. But I feel like this challenge holds a special place in my heart because I have always DREAMED of being that person who wakes up before everybody else and works out.  When I picture the woman that I want to be, she works out in the mornings.  Once upon a time  I used to work out with a trainer three days a week in the morning, and it was hard, but really, I loved it.  I love that feeling of solitude when you are the first person hitting the pavement.  I love the feeling for the rest of the day that you have checked the dreaded workout off the ol' to-do list.  I love the feeling that I have done something for myself that very few people have done before 7am.

But this is it, I'm going to wake up and workout everyday (yoga once a week to give myself a cardio break), and I'm going to blog everyday, and this is it.  No more excuses, no more tight pants, this is it.  Tomorrow I'm going to Nth Degree with my sister, then Thursday I'm going to rest, and Friday it all begins.

Until tomorrow, bloggies.
