Reach, Reach, Reach those goals!!!!

So, recently my husband and son spent two days at a Senior Fest that was held at the fair grounds here in Tampa. My husband has had a booth at several of these events and they have proved quite entertaining at times. If you have give-aways such as pens, magnets and popcorn, your booth is swarmed. Every now and then, someone is actually interested in the information you have to share. At the recent Senior Fest, Richard Simmons of exercise video fame was a special guest. He led a senior walk and a few other motivational things.
One of the booths had people making elaborate hats out of balloons. Jim and Joshua had great plans to get balloon hats for themselves and have their pictures taken with Richard Simmons. Well, I have yet to see these photos, I don't think it happened, they both chickened out! They did, however, get autographed pictures of Richard. Why? Why? Why? Did my husband get one made out to me??? I certainly do not have anything against Richard Simmons, but where do I put this photo? At the moment it is on my refrigerator as a motivator of sorts. It scares me a little bit.
Here we are into February and I wonder how many people have stuck with or even started their New Year goals. Exercising has been a sticking point for me. Full of great intentions that never really materialize. This week I will do better. My husband and son have been going to the gym, so it isn't like I would be heading out alone. Will check-in next week and let you know how I have done!!
Don't they say that if you do something for 30 days that it becomes a habit?? Let's hope that this is correct!! I think my reward for sticking at exercising will be to take down the picture.

I'm in the same boat Sally-Ann! It seems I just can't get BOTH the diet AND the exercise going at the sametime! I will do well at one and then the other slacks. Hopefully I'll get it together one of these days.

I think the Richard Simmons picture would scare me too! Get out there and workout so you can take that darn thing down! YIKES!

I agree, it is kinda scary... Exercising does become a good habit. Once you get to doing it everyday, you start to feel so good. It is like reading your scriptures, one of my goals were to read everyday, even if it is a little bit. I have a bad habit of only reading every couple of days. I have been doing it every night since the beginning of the year, now it is a habit. I feel like I am missing something if I don't read. Exercising is the same way. Like you, I also set a goal for myself to loose all my baby weight. So far I have been doing pretty good. I sure do look forward to being a size 7 again. I have a long way though... Good luck on yours too! You have it in you!
