Flo Makes A Confession

In a recent blog post, my esteemed co-author, Susan made a shocking confession.   (See full confession HERE ). Right there on camera, she shamelessly confessed to not having exercised in two full weeks! Shame on you Susan. What kind of an example are you setting for the rest of us? “I had a lot of family stuff…….a lot of family coming in from out of town.” Really? That’s the best you can do? Excuses, and you know it! Tutt-tutt-tutt.

Weeeeelllllllll, as long as we are being totally honest, I suppose I should make a confession as well. (We may need a priest for this one!)

-It’s been three full weeks since I have unrolled my yoga matt, and three-score and ten since I went for a run. (I actually don’t have a clue what “three score and ten” means, but it sounds like a long time.) Hey, what can I say? I have been battling a nasty head cold.

-While I am still adhering to my “no meats, no sweets, no dairy” rules, there are a lot of junky foods that slip through the cracks. (By which I mean the crack of my lips.) Let’s just say, there are tins of Pringles in me that haven’t even been opened yet.   But hey, I’ve been too busy to get to the grocery store, so I didn’t have any healthy snacks on hand.

-While there are “three score and ten” bottles of vitamins and supplements staring accusingly at me from a shelf in my kitchen, I will confess that I have not been faithfully taking them lately. In my own defense, it is hard to remember everything that I have to do to stay healthy! (Geeze, give me a break!)

-Of course I would be remiss not to mention my arch-nemesis/best friend, wine. While I try to limit my libations to weekends only, and “just the one”, I have vague recollections of  over indulging in  the stuff on the May 24th long weekend. Not that it is entirely my fault. I mean, I was camping, and “gravel pit” camping, no less. I would have been kicked out of the pit had I not sat around the camp fire and had “just the one” with my fellow campers.

There is no better day than Monday to get back on track with the ole health habits, so yesterday I kicked my excuses to the wayside and got to work. I got up early and did yoga. I ate only nutritious, healthy foods. I took my supplements. Best of all, I went for a run after work! I honestly thought I could hear the theme song from Rocky playing as I sprinted around the trail! By “sprinted” of course I mean a slow jog. So slow in fact that a duck pulled out and passed me at one point. But hey, I was running! No more excuses.

  1. I’m “liking” this post even though I look hideous in the picture you chose. I would hate to learn from someone who was perfect and never fell off the wagon. It’s just not normal. I’m glad to hear that you’re human too!

  2. Thanks for the little laugh this morning the duck part cracked me up! And thank you for the reminder that’s it is alright to have a slip up with the exercise when life gets so busy the important thing is to get back at it even if that duck does pass you lol!

  3. Sometimes, we just fall of the health wagon. But, we still manage to get back on without too much damage. I am grateful for the information you and Susan have shared in your book. It is my “go to” survivor book. Thanks to both of you.
