I'm almost ashamed to admit it, cause its taken me 28 years & extreme chubbs to finally start exercising, on a committed level. 5 years ago, i did for a while, cause i had people to go with (heidi & david switched nightly trips to the gym with me for a while) but it was never something i liked. i did it more cause i felt pressure... i've been hitting the treadmill for about a week now, AND I'M ENJOYING IT. Heather, I feel like we're really sisters now:)
This morning, I jogged. twice. now, granted, probably for less than three minutes each time & i thought i was going to have a heart attack after the second time, but I did it. I think I might start throwing that in more often and for longer. We'll see. That might be too ambitious of me.
This afternoon, we (my students & I) were just finishing up our kickball game in the 2nd grade kickball tournament. My kids played well & hard, I was feeling so proud. Their reward for a game well played? 50 jumping jacks... (I think some thought it was a punishment) But guess what? I jumped jack with them! They loved that I did it (instead of my usual drill instructor manner) and yelled the numbers as we went...
Guys, come to grips with it, I'm trying too - the days of Chuck might just be coming to an end. Or at least to a shrinkage (and this time not cause i was in the pool!)
