This Is The Deal

This is the deal:

I’m 37, going on 82.

I’ve never met a carbohydrate I didn’t love.

I haven’t seen an arm muscle in about a decade.

And I think I have an inner athlete in me…but she has laid dormant for a very long time.


So yesterday, I made the decision to engage a personal trainer on my journey.

And I’m petrified.


But the reality is:

I’m a rule follower.  A type-A gal.

And to be honest…I need a little toughness.  If I say I can’t do something…or don’t have time….I’d love it, if someone would just say, “b*&# PLEASE,” and make me do it anyway.  Colorful language optional, of course.

I’ve read every book out there about nutrition, wellness, and health.  I don’t need more information.  I know what I’m supposed to do.  I know how the body works.  I know my body and I listen to it, for the most part…except when it tells me to exercise.  Or not to eat ice cream.  Then I tell it to shut up and I do what I want!


So here’s to taking the fear…head on.  And the anxiety.  And the excuses. And all those things that hold us back….

What fear are you holding on to?
