Exciting things coming my way...

I'm trying to be as mysterious as possible.

Dare I say it?

Stay tuned for an (exciting) update.

Oh. Hey.

To the blog that I forgot existed,

I'm sorry.

I really hope there is no one out there, slowly losing the will to live because I have stopped my updates.

It's definitely not a conscious decision.
There just seems to be a lack of blog worthy material at this point in time. Either that or I have lost my touch for being able to spin things into an entertaining read.

If it helps, I am working on things in my life.
Ya know, finding new passions, re kindling old ones, cleaning out the closets (both literally, and figuratively), getting outside, making decisions, thinking.
It has been fun.

That is all...for now.

Things I WILL Love Thursday.

2.The Sydney Opera House.
3.Beaches, Beaches, BEACHES!
4. The second best accent in the world.
5.Seeing a mate from bible school, and being able to witness her GET MARRIED!
6. Flying into the future.
7. Having my first totally solo traveling experience.

Four days late, I hope you can forgive me. I need to learn that I should not give any teasers, because there is a good chance that either the post will be late, or never show up at all.

But as you might have guessed, this lucky girl is planning her trip for AUSTRALIA!

Sometimes things just happen.
And details fall into place just right.

At the end of March I will be heading out for Melbourne, and I will have 3 weeks to delight in the wonder that is the land down under. (anybody catch that rhyme?)

Another month, another goal.

On Thursday, a friend reminded me that it would be February the next day, and was wondering what my next goal would be.
I guess it's a good thing that I told you guys about my resolutions, because without that reminder I would have totally forgotten. Thanks, Friend!

So I started thinking, trying to figure out an easy, yet effective goal to accomplish this month.
It took a while.
It was half way through yesterday before I figured out something reasonable.
The complicated part is finding a way to adopt a habit, that is reasonable enough so I won't quit because of the difficulty level.

February's Goal!


Now who doesn't like a little confession moment?
Here is my secret.
I have been going to the gym, yes.
I have been going to the gym twice a week, yes.
I have been telling everybody I go to the gym twice a week, of course!

But, have I been going alone, and not telling anybody how much I actually do? Guilty.

You see, going to the gym is one thing, but actually pushing yourself? That's a totally different matter.
Now before you go and judge me more than you have already, I will try and redeem myself.

I'm not a total fraud.

I do my 15 minutes of cardio, ab and arm machines, and sometimes some leg work. But it wasn't until this last week that I was actually pushing myself to the point of exhaustion....sometimes.

This next month I am really going to try and convince myself that sweating myself silly on an elliptical is fun.
One reason that has been keeping me from spending that extra time at the gym is boredom.
I sit on the bike for 10 minutes and I am already wishing to be done.
How am I supposed to keep myself going for another 20 minutes?

I came up with a solution.
Don't laugh.
Wait, laughing is good, it burns calories.

Here is a video from Youtube to show you what it's all about if you have never experienced it yourself.
Don't feel as if you have to watch it all. I didn't. Just get a little taste of how much fun you could be having while getting a workout!

I tried this for the first time today.
It was confusing.
I'm not a dancer, and they don't explain everything before hand. So you just kind of have to go with it, and pray you don't crash into someone when you go mess up and go the wrong way.

But it was fun. And amusing. And I felt sweaty at the end. But not worked out. Trying to decide if that is a good thing or not.

I will be implementing this as a third exercise unit. It will be a fun, light way of getting some cardio in on the weekend without it feeling like a chore.

As you could see, it is all done to music, and it really helps the time go fast.
And then for my regular gym days I will be increasing my cardio time, and actually making a schedule and plan of what I have to do in all the other departments.

I will be continuing my Coca Cola fast in the meantime. I just don't feel as if I am over my addiction yet.
You might laugh at the use of addiction, but it was just that.
I was starting to have at least one can a day, and not feeling happy until I had it.
Bad. Or sad. Either one fits.

Tune in tomorrow for the previously mentioned exciting news!
