resolutions

I'm gonna get into shape. I'm gonna do it.

I don't really want to lose a ton of weight or anything, I just want to feel like I can run a few miles without throwing up, or at least climb a flight of stairs without panting.

I did pretty good with last year's resolution. I resolved to give this "blogging" thing a try. I've enjoyed it. It's been a nice outlet. I've made new friends, pissed off old friends, and gotten called into the office on more than one occasion. Good times were had by all.

Anyway, I'm pretty worn out. I just got back from my step class. DON'T LAUGH! I can step like a madman. I'm feeling the burn. I feel so good I'm gonna have a celebratory doughnut!

Step class?!?! I didn't know that was still around! Shandria and I used to do step class back in like 1995!! Seriously though, that's awesome that you are actively pursuing getting into shape. I started doing karate a few months ago and I love it; I have more energy and I can finally climb a flight of stairs without panting . . . ;)

Don't you let any of these Flashdance comments stop you brother man! If I could step, I'd step. Unfortunately, just typing the word step has me winded. So I'm going to take a rest and then finish this comment...; )

I knew I should have bought you those hot pink lycra tights for Christmas! Oh well.
Just answer me this...Do you wear WAY-too-big socks and roll them down in a bunch at the top of your high-top Reeboks?

Seriously though, Linds and I are planning a full-on assualt on our laziness after the move, mountain bikes and such. Plus we'll be taking advantage of the community centers that have the most amazing work out rooms...let's hope I can get this pony-keg down to at least a 4-pack!

I started on the fitness resolution last year, and resolve to continue this year. I started karate in June and running in October. The karate has been awesome in lots of ways, the running is harder to maintain if you're doing it on your own though but it doesn't take too many outings before you notice improvement. Classes sound like a good idea although I don't know if I like the mental picture that's been presented here...

Celebratory is such a fun word to say. I feel like I'm speaking a different language as it rolls off my tongue. Celebratory. Celebratory. More medication please.
