Random thoughts of a girl who used to try to fit in the box. Then I realized that boxes are stupid. Except this box, the one above. It's really pretty.

I Wanna Be A Loser!
The Directv guy came yesterday and hooked me up in my workout/whatever room. Yes! (By the way, did you know that you can "negotiate" with the various satellite providers? We wanted to add a receiver, and after a little "we're thinking about changing to Dish" talk, we got the additional HD receiver, a DVR, AND $35 knocked off our monthly bill! Not bad!!)
So, now armed with satellite, I was ready to hit it! I turned on the Biggest Loser at 8 p.m. and climbed on my treadmill. My plan was to go for the two full hours of the BL, but that didn't quite work out! There were even a couple of times that I thought, "this sucks!" But then I looked at the 400 pound 60-year old guy walking across Death Valley, and I knew I could do better! It was good motivation! I was hot, sweaty, my heart was beating fast, but it was so exhilirating! It really is amazing how exercise can make you feel so good! Just after one hour I felt so much better, both physically and mentally! How can I NOT exercise when I feel the positive effects of it almost immediately? I want to be a winner . . . and the road to winning is losing!
I think I'll take another walk tonight . . . this time with Jeff and Coach!
