TEXT BOOK AND TIGER



I spent my day cleaning out one of the bathrooms upstairs. I cannot tell you how many bottles of body sprays and flavored lip gloss I tossed out. Some of them have to date back at least four years. My girls really have never used them, but in middle school, it was what everybody gave as Christmas and birthday gifts. I tried one of the lip glosses to see if it was "good" and it made my lips itch. I figured I better throw it all away rather than keep things that might end up breaking someone out in a nasty rash.

It happens to me every year at this time..... my lower back starts to act like it is 90 years old. I I have spent a lot of time icing it and am trying to get into the practice of bending my knees when I pick things up. That is the hardest thing for me to do.
I know it is just a sign that I am not in the shape I need to be in and definitely not at the weight that I want to be at.

I really need to put getting active and working out at the top of my to do list instead of somewhere near the bottom.
Give me the chance and I can come up with 1,200 things to do instead of getting on that elliptical trainer upstairs or going to the gym.


I don't remember where I saw this.
It is a copy of a text book page.
Hopefully a new edition is already in the works!

I like your blog background.

I'm with you on working out. We moved a heavy chair today and I hope I'm not sorry tomorrow. If I don't work out first thing in the morning I don't usually get to it. Not that I couldn't I just don't. I'm doing pretty good so far this year but its only Jan. 12th : )

Great mag shot! and woe is Tiger and the press/media machine...

Sure hope your back feels better...I have found this winter, with all its snow to be keeping me from being as regimented on exercise...

But look out in the spring!
(I hope) :)

Ditto on the new background, super cute.

I know what I threw out when I cleaned out 1 daughter's worth of old makeup and such. I can not imagine 3 girls worth!

Yes, that article won't work anymore. Well, maybe in an article about betrayal or wrecking one's life . . .
