Off Like a Hurd of Turtles

Since the fear of public humiliation worked so well for the quitting smoking thing I figured I'd share with you the next phase of Extreme Makeover: Healthy Lifestyle Edition. Yep, it's time to break out the diet and exercise.

I'm not one of those people who freaks out over every pound. I haven't even stepped on a scale in years other than at the doctors office. So a few weeks ago when my pants no longer fit, I just went out and bought new pants. I figure at my age, I deserve to buy bigger pants. But a new belt too? Houston, we have a problem.

So today I woke early, trotted downstairs, flicked on the TV and watched Denise Austin workout. After twenty minutes I decided it might not kill me, so I joined her for the cool down portion.

I feel better already.

Just remember - all things in moderation. This ESPECIALLY applies to exercise.

Serious moderation! Topped off with brownies:)

I thought I was the only one that knew the expression "off like a herd of turtles"! My dad use to say it all of the time. I throw it out there once and a while always to receive an odd look. Love it!
