The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

In reverse order....

The Ugly: I've gained a LOT of weight! It ain't purty, kittens!!

The Bad: I was told today by the peeps at Lilly Pulitzer that there are officially no more tickets left to the Martha show. Gosh, I gave it my all. I emailed everyone multiple times. To no avail. I had big dreams of going to Hopsy's Lilly Par-tay at the Lilly store the night before the show on the 11th. And I have two outfits picked out. Or had. I had two outfits picked out. Honestly I feel super bummed about it too! It's not fair and I am officially throwing a toddler-like temper tantrum. Boo hoo!

The Good: Are you sitting down? Guess what I did this morning? Just guess. It's related to The Ugly. I put in a pilates DVD and actually worked out! Do you hear the choir of angels rejoicing for me? I know, me too! Please send me some good vibes or prayers or just motivational thoughts in hopes that I get up tomorrow morning and do the same thing. Some of you must be asking why I don't just join a gym. Oh that's because gyms scare me. I am just super intimidated the moment I walk into a gym. Not my scene. DVD's and (when I am in much better shape) jogging outside work much better for me. You know, when I can actually motivate my ever-expanding self to get out of bed and hit play on the DVD player. But let's focus on the positive...today I exercised for the first time in nearly forever. Woo hoo for me!

Keep up the good work-out work!! I don't like gyms much either, which is why I go to my local parks & rec facility. It's a lot less intimidating and cheaper, too!!! Have a great weekend!

I am with you on the ugly :( I have to resist the Easter candy!

I am sorry you didn't get Lilly tickets. They sent out an email today asking people to change dates if they can. I am worried some people may not get in!

Oh honey I completely understand! I HATE the gym. I always feel like people must be watching my fat bounce and that my armpits let off a lethal stench that everyone can smell! What DVD are you using?

Chloe said...

too bad about lilly- but now you can chill out at home and watch the show! you don't even have to brush your hair!

I'm a fan of the DVD's myself...that way no one can see how uncoordinated I am!

Hold tight to your commitment! That is wonderful. I just came back from the mall with a box of dark chocolate cherry cordials by redeeming a gift certificate I had. I've had it over a year. Your success makes me wish I had waited another year. I am contemplating the evils ahead of me. Alas, I am not that strong today but I'm glad you are! Motivates the rest of us. :)

to THE GOOD:
I go to the gym but mostly just on the treadmill because Calgary is too cold for running outside. And I'm thinking about joining Weight Watchers....I have faith in you

Pink Maple said...

I'm not a big gym fan either; good luck your new exercise plan!

I agree with you on the gym. I've never liked them and love to use DVD's and my stationary bike while watching tv.

I am tres, tres sad you can not attend my little fete. You will be missed! However, watching Lilly in the comfort of your own home will be wonderful in itself!
