Skeleton on an elliptical machine

Guess what I did today?!?!  You’ll never in a million years guess what I did!! Go ahead, guess!!

No, keep guessing!

Nope, try again!

Guess again!!

(I really super-hate it when my kids do this to me, so that’s why I’m not being annoying at all by doing it to you)

I got up at 5:ridiculous30 A-freakin-M and worked out on my elliptical!

*cue confetti and fanfare*

I don’t know what made me do it. Last night before bed I decided that I was going to work out this morning. My husband said, “Yeah. Sure you are.” He knows me Very Well.  And I said, “gee thanks. you’re encouragement is underwhelming.”  Then he said, “You go girl!! You can do it!!” and then I gave him 5 bucks and we went to sleep.

So this morning I got my sleepy self outta bed and bumped into the dresser and then bumped into the door and got a few clothes on and headed to the garage where it was 150  trillion degrees in there, but I’m kind of a big baby so I didn’t open the big garage door for fear that Freddy, Jason, and that Scream Guy would be waiting on the other side. Geeze Louise it was hot! Bikram Ellipticalizing anyone? Yeah it was a sweaty good time.

So then with all that seratonin and other feel good chemicals running around in my brain, I thought, “hey! Why don’t I see if I can do this every morning for the next 10 days?” So that’s my plan –  I’m going to get myself outta bed and get in some cardio every morning for the next 10 days. But, okay, let’s be realistic here – if I can do at least 7 out of 10 days I’ll be a happy camper because really, nobody likes a perfectionist, right? And I’d hate for you all to hate me for being perfect.  😉

So anyone else want to join me? We can all get up and be sleepy exercisers together!! Woohoo!!
