Stuff we find on Facebook, without even "looking"

I watched THIS video and was going to share it on my Facebook "wall", but I thought I'd link it HERE instead, so we can maybe have a little "chat" about it.

I do not have "hundreds of pounds" to lose, but when am I going to take that first step to lose a fraction of that, knowing that I'll feel better about myself if I succeed? When am I going to take that first step to lose a fraction of that, knowing that I'll STILL feel better about myself, even if I "fail"?

I have always hated "exercise for the sake of exercise". But I do want to be fit. I do want to be healthy. I love ballroom dance. I love swimming, in a heated pool. I hated yoga the first time I tried it, but years later, I didn't hate it.

I want to feel young again. I want to feel alive again. I don't want to head into a depression just because it's winter. I don't want to feel "old" just because my joints ache when the weather changes. Is yoga the thing for me? Can I do it in the comfort of my own home, so that no one will laugh at my non-yoga attire or body? (I know, no one in a studio will laugh at my attire or body, but you get it. Right?)

Have you felt the way I feel? What works or has worked for you? Do you have any insights for me? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. I have felt that way pretty much ever since I moved to Canada! When I was in England I pole danced and I had the horse and I had more money which enabled me to do more in my spare time. Now I am sedentary and, like you, I don't like to exercise without a purpose and so I have put on the weight :(

    1. I think it's so awesome that you pole dance(d), Holly. I would love to learn that, simply as a way to feel sexy while also getting an amazing workout. Alas...


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
