I have two suits. The one i got when my dad died. It's a fine suit. It's a suit that i got in a hurry. It's also the suit i got when i weighed over 200 pounds.I don't really like anything about that suit at all.
My other suit is my suit of awesomeness. It's a grand suit that i got 2 years ago when my oldest son graduated. When i bought that suit i weighed in the 170's. I like that suit a lot. Except for the fact that i tried it on yesterday and i can't do the pants up.
Earlier this year we went on holidays and i wanted to be in decent shape when i went. I had a goal that i was working toward. I was exercising and i felt pretty good. Even though i didn't get to the weight that i wanted to be, i was in the lower half of the 180's. Since we got back ( mid January) i've struggled to get back in the exercising mode. Granted, we had some things happen here that left me feeling a little less exercisey but i don't really know why i never got back at it. It was too easy not to i guess. That and beers are so darned tasty.
My middle son graduates at the end of June. There's my goal. Right now i weigh 190 pounds. I figure that if i can drop 10 pounds i'll fit back into the suit of awesomeness and become a little more awesome myself in the process. Plus summer is on it's way, or, it's supposed to be anyways. It wouldn't hurt to look a little better with my shirt off either.
My friend Pish Posh is doing The Get Fit! Challenge. Actually it's already week 8. Yesterday she extended it to the end of May. Over there, they've been talking about habit forming. I have to get back into the habit of doing some exercise. 21 days of doing something is what it takes for something to become a habit. Originally, i thought i could do this on my own but i think i might need a little help. I'm going to link up with her page, along with a lot of other bloggers and Fit back into that bitch'in suit by the end of June.
So, tomorrow morning, i'm going to do some stretching. I've got to google some exercises to work on my gut. I'm going to try to get my heart rate going every day if i can. This should be easier since tax season will be over very soon and my wife will actually be able to spend some time at home. (i plan to spend a good deal of time chasing her around the house!). 21 days from now, i expect to be an exercising machine. 60 days from now, i'm going to be AWESOME!
..........when you join the Pish Posh Get Fit Challenge, you get to post an cool badge on your page. Who doesn't like schwag! Except i have to figure out how to do that, so expect it to show up sometime soon.
