    After a long break from the gym,

    I've decided to start working out again. I've gotten so unfit that I almost feel like giving up but I'll work my way back to where I was before.

    Me too. I'm in my 40's I have no misconceptions

    that I'll ever look like a 20 something again. But what I do want is be healthy and take care of myself and if I can get a little toner that will be okay too.

    I cannot express enough how much 20 mins of

    physical activity a day improves my mood. I can't wait till I make it routine. I need to stay accountable to myself and remember everyday that gets skipped is a day I get a little bit grumpier and further from my goals.

    Gonna get in better shape,

    but this is my body at the moment. I want to tone up though, cause tbh I'm a little jiggly. And I want to feel better about myself & know that my body is happy and healthy. Which also means I need to stop eating rubbish! Gonna have a 'nap' until 5. Off to the gym at 6 to do...

    Need A Better Place

    I hate going to curves or other women's clubs. I am bi but when I'm working out I'd rather be around men. When I was a little girl my daddy would take me to the Y with him, but now that I'm older they wont let me work out there. It is where I learned to swim and so much more...

    Just finished working out

    for the first time in over a month. Felt so damn good. I was all sweaty. 32 minutes of straight cardio. I need to make myself get motivated to exercise at least 3x a week.

    So you feel bad, about YOURSELF,

    because of something YOU DID NOT DO. Girl, you need to think that over again. Others may make you feel bad, BUT ABOUT THEM, NOT YOURSELF. No one likes to be mistreated, god knows i've been bullied a lot thru elementary and high school, and it made me feel bad almost every time...

    I'm about to workout this morning.

    I haven't been going like I had in the past. I became really depressed after breaking up with my boyfriend. We have remained friends but it's not the same. I wish I would have waited it out instead of ending things abruptly. Now I'm feeling ok again and I want to look and feel...

    I know that if I started working out daily

    even if it's for 10 mins I would feel better. But I don't :/ even though I know 100% it would make me feel better. Self sabotage?

    Oh I hate exercising in the cold weather.

    I'm temped to just lie in bed and read a book. I've noticed a lot of the New Years resolution exerciser's have quit already. I'm gonna do it though it's something I need, like air.

    remember being confident, feeling healthy, and being happier. I wish my husband could have a girl with a beautiful body, and shouldn't I be that girl? I feel like I've failed him; he says he doesn't mind, he says I'm still beautiful but his actions don't reflect it. Should I be...
