Oh sweet lungs

I have an excellent habit of feeling motivated, but ultimately not doing anything about it. Today I feel motivated to build up an exercise routine. I know I’m not fat, I’m actually happy with some of the changes my body has made this year, but I know I need to be more fit. I am currently in the process of obtaining some home work-out videos to try out. I don’t have a lot of space to use them right now, so we’ll have to see what’s possible, but I do have a yoga mat at least.

Someday, I’ll get a Wii just for Wii Fit. It’s supposed to be really good and I really need something to keep me motivated and something easy to follow. I’d rather not go to a gym. I need to strengthen my knees and do lots of cardio. I can’t WAIT for summer.

I apparently have no good work-out music. Time to start a playlist!

Oh, also, I start work May 9th. I’m very nervous, but looking forward to being busy and saving money again. The apartment hunt is back on, but still very frustrating since all we know is searching craigslist and that does not seem very efficient. WE NEED AN APARTMENT.

I also felt motivated to write in my blog, so voila. Sorry it’s boring!

Thank you for joining me here tonight

My plans for exercise have gone terribly array as of late. After finally feeling better after a week of being sick on and off in various ways (yesterday was intense migraines and exhaustion, before was just general cold symptoms), and not feeling terribly depressed (probably because I’m feeling better and the sun is out!), I realized that I am probably not going to get to go biking 3 days a week like I’d hoped. Tomorrow is interview #2 at the best damn job I could even dream up at this point in my life. I think I have a really good shot at getting it, and of course, that will mean coming up with some other way to get in regular exercise.

My bicycleI may look into early morning bike rides or biking to work, once I’m fit enough. OR roller blading in the morning? That seems fun, plus it’s kind of like running, except I hate running! I know it still requires skill but pshah, I’m sure I can learn (readers, meet optimism, it’s rare). Eh. I need to do something. The schedule of a real full-time job is going to make it difficult, and makes a gym more appealing, though I hate the idea of er…public exercise? Hard to explain.

Whine whine whine. I kind of hope I have some time to spare before the job starts (if I get it) so I can keep up with my spring cleaning of house and self.
