Renewed Determination

Le Flamingo
Always have an Equipment Stand nearby!
This is what trainers make you do when they need a laugh.
My best side!

Not my best side!
     I'm not sure why but I seem to have some renewed determination that has come bubbling to the surface as of late. It has to do with eating more healthy and maybe even, gulp, exercising. Now, mind you I have not started acting on this renewed determination yet, but I am planning a future exercise event. Perhaps it was the close call of the world almost ending on Saturday. Perhaps it was when I was looking through old photos and realized that I used to have a flat, not fat, stomach.

     My trainer is back from his time in the National Guard so it seems like a good time to get some butt-kicking done. To do this, I brought out my exercise photos that he took of me last year to encourage me to exercise. It did not encourage anything except snide laughter when I put the pictures on FB. Just in case you need a pep talk, here they are...the prequel to my exercise program and some informative YouTube videos that I will be creating to help Baby Boomers everywhere.

God bless you...you gave me a much needed giggle today. However, if you were attempting to inspire me to exercise..well...not so much.

I am impressed! You've put yourself out there as inspiration. I for one really appreciate it.

I'd video my efforts. However I'd need a camera capable of capturing the wild movement of my flapping triceps.

Ha, well the Spanx route is a lot less work, once you get them on!
Good luck in your anti-Spanx campaign.

Ha, ha. Good luck in your anti Spanx quest. Geez, who knew exercise was the answer? Glad to hear from a fellow Floridian too. I'm in the Orlando area and it's really, HOT here. Who can freaking exercise?

Good luck with your new exercise program. Perhaps your "coach" can keep you motivated. I'm usually motivated for about 10 minutes.

Just wanted to let you know that I tagged you at my place.

I had some renewed determination for a few weeks, then yesterday I crashed! Hoping for a non slothful week ahead!
