Welcome to the confessional!
Here's how it works. Every week I post a confession and invite and encourage others to post a confession of their own.
Confessions can be deep, funny, emotional, hysterical, happy, sad, angry, ranting, thankful, wishful, wistful, regretful, joyful, simple or complex. They can be dreams, regrets, wishes, goals, disappointments or surprises. Confessions can be posted using your name, a clever profile name or anonymously.
For myself, the confession I post will be meant for public knowledge about me. That said, I intend to also anonymously post confessions intermingled among others that I don't necessarily want to be known by family and friends who read.
Today, I confess...
that I need to buckle down & get 10 or 15 lbs off
Ten months ago I threw my back out something awful. I felt like Tim Conway when he played the old man on the Carol Burnett Show. I could barely shuffle my feet from the kitchen to the family room. All I could do was sit or lay down. It lasted from November to February.
I gained an extra size.
The weather this summer was such that I didn't get out hiking nearly as much as I would have loved to. I didn't get out hiking enough to drop that extra size.
Since I firmly believe in healthy eating and not dieting it seems I'm going to have to break down and start some sort of exercise program to get back to my size 8.
I really don't like exercise programs. They bore me. A beautiful new view every few steps I don't find boring. I sure hope I can get in a few more hikes before the weather completely prohibits it.
