23 1/2 hours

So I haven't gone in the last 3 days to the gym.... I know, I know.  Excusses, Excusses. Friday I was getting ready for the Farmers Market, and Saturday was the Farmers Market, and today I felt like being lazy.  I also was having pretty severe pain in my left knee. 

I was almost going to say f*ck it. I'm happy being me, I don't really mind being a big girl, my knees hurt, I give up, I'm throwing in the towel.

I watched a video this evening that completely changed my mind; and know what, deep down inside I knew what I thought isn't true, (except for my knees). I don't want to give up. I want to be healthy, fit in a size 12, and maybe alieviate some of the pain in my knees. 

Do my knees hurt, yes.  But I'm pretty sure that this process isn't going to be easy, and there is going to be pain.  And that nothing worth doing, is easy.  Take a walk after you eat dinner, take the stairs, park further away in the parking lot at Wally World.

 Every little thing will add up to: Less pain, more sleep, smaller waist line, lower blood pressure, and well maybe being around a bit longer to enjoy what life has to offer.

That being said, here is the viedo I watched:

It won't be easy, but I can tell you that it will get easier, gradually and a little at a time. After a while you will ACTUALLY WANT to park further away and take the stairs. Trust me sweetie, you just gotta start and not stop. I promise and I also know you have the will power and determination to do this.

You ROCK! It is hard but it does get easier! On that note I have back and hip problems. I have arthritis in my lower back instead of getting the shot in my back my doc suggested taking fish oil 3 1000 mg daily! I believe it has helped some! I don't know if it will help but it might be worth a shot!!!
