Perhaps I should have waited until the morning to post this especially when tonight was the first night at bootcamp. I’m not going to lie, it was hard but they say it might get easier.

Seems to me I can’t remember zipping up a pair of size 16 jeans even though it wasn’t that long ago.  Things become difficult when you put on weight and some things that seem effortless to some become a big ordeal.  Take putting on a pair of socks for instance, it is a job, I have to sit my left cheek on the bed and raise my left foot to put on my sock, then reverse and sit my right cheek on the bed and lift my right leg and repeat.  I had to recently go out and purchase a pair of knee high boots so I was able to grab the tops of them to pull them on with ease.  Another thing when you are 4 foot 11 inches and your height isn’t from your waist to you foot, driving becomes difficult when the seat needs to be put back to accommodate a few pounds.  Oh and the all embarrassing moment is when any restaurant uses captain chairs and you get up and the chair gets up with you.

Well apparently this UFIT boot camp is going to kick me back into shape, hum, I don’t remember what shape I use to be either as I’m taking on this pear shape lately.

My daughter has encouraged me to join and I’m going to stick with it for us both.  I have 5 weeks to fit and 5 weeks of healthy eating and making life changes is on the rise.  I might of embarrassed myself tonight but I’m going back on Friday to do it again.

It is what you’ll do after reading this post called:

Garage Door

The boss walked into the office one morning not knowing his zipper was down and his fly area wide open.
His assistant walked up to him and said, ‘This morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?’ The boss told her he knew he’d closed the garage door, and walked into his office puzzled by the question.

As he finished his paperwork, he suddenly noticed his fly was open, and zipped it up. He then understood his assistant’s question about his ‘garage door.’

He headed out for a cup of coffee and paused by her desk to ask, ‘When my garage door was open, did you see my Hummer parked in there?’
She smiled and said, ‘No, I didn’t. All I saw was an old mini van with two flat tires..


I opened this in my email at 5a.m. and near woke everyone in the house laughing over it.  It seems the only time I get a great deal of sleep is when the day changes to more light.  I’m going somewhere with this, In October the daylight savings comes into effect and that is when it effects my sleep and I get the best sleep on the shortest Winter Day.  December 31, I am not able to roll myself out of bed by 9a.m. in the morning.  Now we are just coming up to Spring and my old body is getting to bed by 11:00 p.m. and waking up at 5:05 am and earlier each day by 2 minutes.  In another 3 weeks I’ll be waking up around or 4:00 a.m. this is crazy but it happens to me like clock work every year.  Then we experience the almighty time change and do I gain an hour sleep?  No, in fact I wake on the 4:00 o’clock hour which is really the 3:00 o’clock hour.

Oh, yes  the point, the other people in the house would appreciate it if no one sent me an email with a joke in it until after 9:00 am as they don’t get up as early as I do.

Change is a good thing, it keeps you aware, up to date and moving right along with the best of them.  However the time change seems to be the only difficult one I seem to deal with ever.  Even after I spent $$ on advertisement and the tourism department changes the name brand.

I’m away at an all day conference then out to a Islander by choice meeting tonight the first of what I think will be many and I’ll be back to let you know about it tomorrow.

Have a wonderful Monday,

xo, Cindy
