Get Your Shake On!

Get Your Shake On!

As I glanced through the latest JCPenney catalog over breakfast, I had a sudden urge to buy a swimsuit.  But I wouldn’t dare act on it.  First, this spare tire around my waist needs some reducing.  I started out strong yesterday with a light warm up and stretches that I did in the bathroom so I had no excuse.  When I felt confident, I tipped-toed past the children’s rooms and did 10 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 152 calories burned.  Probably 200 cals in all.  Measly, I know.  But for a short amount of time invested, you can see the benefit.  Some exercise vs. no exercise.  Yeah, just enough to burn off that Kit Kat I ate the day before. 

Today I’m sticking to my guns and I’m not eating that crap — just well balanced meals and fruits or healthy treats.  Maybe in June, I’ll be ready to shop for that tankini.  And if I don’t at least my heart will be healthy and I’ll have enough stamina to keep up with my children.  I’m striving to be active each day.  So tonight I have belly dancing and I can’t wait to shake away the pounds.  How will you get your shake on?
