I have been telling myself for months now that I need to start eating better, drinking more water and getting on the treadmill daily. But for whatever reasons it hasn't happened. First it was Mindy's wedding and then tree harvest and now I've run out of excuses. Yesterday I even went so far as to put on sweats and tennis shoes. I even sat in front of the treadmill and watched the University of Oregon bowl game. When I was at Costco a couple days ago I bought stuff like carrots and celery, hummus and skim milk. But I still have chocolates left from Christmas and I can't seem to throw them away. I have stocked up on Viactive and vitamins, bottled water and crystal light and fiber one bars. This is what I know that I need to do but would my friend Stephanie be offended if I didn't eat all the cute little chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting and pretty sprinkles that she sent out here? I think so too. Besides, I was wondering, since New Years Day falls on a Thursday and that is just the middle of the week, should I just wait and start on the treadmill on Monday? Anyway, I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year. My motto for now is Merry Fitness and a Happy New Rear!!
