Alright, I did my exercises this morning, and then some. I did the 30-minute challenge on my treadmill and thought I'd keel over right then and there!! This was of course, after I'd already done 30 minutes of Step Aerobics on the Wii Fit AND the warm-up routine on the first Carmen Electra DVD. (Can I just say I want her upper body control!! how the flick am I supposed to "roll" my torso without moving my hip and make it look all fluidy-like and s**t?!?!)

So although now I'm sure I look very similar to a strangely large sack of potatoes trying to roll around and do these Strip Aerobics moves, I take comfort in the thought that some day I will give those skinny bitches a run for their money. Hubby will come upstairs to watch ME work-out instead of the women on the TV screen.

This has been a rough week for me overall. This morning my weight was up, and allergies have been HORRID all week. And given the fact that the temperatures have been in the 70s/low 80s we've opened up the house and turned the A/C off! This means a pretty engraved gold-leaf invite for all the ragweed floating about in the air to come into our abode and up my freakin' nose! AHHHHH CHOOOOO!!! I've been taking Zyrtec in the mornings, but it seems that by 4:00 in the afternoon this supposed 24-hr dose has worn off. Ugh! So around 5:00pm I usually have a headache firmly planted in my sinuses and a red nose from all the rubbing.

I did some better working out this morning, so I feel good about that. Now I just hope I can figure out an allergy remedy before too long. Thanks for al the encouraging words from my blog where I posted the picture of myself exercising. I can tell you I hesitated when I brought the pic up on my screen, as I DO look better from the front. But all in all, it was something I needed to do.

You know, I have that SAME strip tease work out DVD- and I usually end up sitting down and watching it like a porn because I am just amazed at how they can move, and THIS WHITE BITCH (me) can't do that!! :)
