There is one good thing about the slow economy... I am not delivering as much mail... which means I am getting off early enough each day to go to the gym! I started going to a new gym about three weeks ago. I am really proud of myself for my consistency so far! I'm already seeing results, so it makes me more motivated to keep going. The more I go, the more I want to go... I think this is how motivation is achieved. You always just have to begin! Anyway, my goal is to get skinny enough to swim... because soon it will be REALLY hot and miserable... and swimming is the best exercise when it is baking outside!
