This weekend was a lot of fun and restful at the same time. I had a lot of time to relax. I had plans to take the dog to the beach and meet up with my friend Viv. In an interesting turn of events Zeke stayed with me so he joined Sly and I on our beach trip. It was nice to catch up with Viv, we used to meet up every weekend to walk Milo and Sly. Hopefully we can get back into this routine because it was beautiful out and I really enjoyed being at the ocean. The best part was I forgot how nice it is to have my dog so beat after spending two hours on the beach. I can say I was pretty spent myself and it was a wake up call to just how out of shape I really am.
On that note I have been having a hard time getting motivated to do anything about being in shape. Work has been busy and stressful and I sometimes feel like I never get a break from life. I have good intentions, but following through on them has never been one my strong points. I always need some sort of motivation. Well I got it yesterday and it came from my brother Todd. We have been playing phone tag for some time, but he finally caught up to me as I was in the grocery store yesterday. I had picked up some beer to watch the Superbowl today and when I told him that he told me he wasn't going to drink in the month of Feb. I thought what a great idea might even jumpstart my workout status while I am doing it. I am going to admit today was probably the toughest not only was it the first day, but it was Superbowl too. I am writing this so I am accountable. Todd will do that but by writing this I am sure my Aunt, cousins, and dear old Mom will remind me of the pledge I took with Todd!
