It's only two weeks...

We made a mad trip to Eastern Oregon this weekend to see our nephew Tyler graduate. We are so proud of him and can't wait to see where his life takes him. He's signed up with the National Guard so that will be the first adventure for him after graduation.

 It was a good weekend full of family and love and, of course, good food. Lots of it. I've known for a while now that I need to get my act together and get fit and healthy, but sometimes staying chubby and eating junk is just...well....easier. I know, it's a cop out. And don't get me wrong. I do want to look great by the time I turn 50 and  I know I would feel amazing if I would eat right, but it's just so much work. And you have to sweat. I personally HATE to sweat. (Unless, of course, it's for a good reason...wink, wink.)

I don't get home often and wanted a picture taken with my sisters. I had my niece Abby take one on my Ipad. My sisters and I think this is the best picture taken of us in a long time....

My sisters Mindy, Stephi and I.
 The focus is off and it's a bit dark making it impossible to see any gray roots, wrinkles or double chins. I think I'll have all of my pictures done like this from now on!

Anyhow, I've told everyone that I'm going to do this two week challenge thing that I read about here: http://www.prevention.com/print/26102

Looking at the plan, I think I can do it. But then, as I get closer to Monday and the day I said I was going to start, I can think of every excuse not to do it. And that's what has gotten me to this place; over weight and out of shape and feeling like I'm 105 years old. So, no more excuses. I've got my gym bag packed, my alarm clock set and I'm making the commitment to do this two week thing.  My sisters have worked hard to look good and I would really like the next photo that we take together to be in focus and show off three great looking women over 40.

It's only two weeks....I know I can do it. Wish me luck!

  1. Wren, you don't know how inspiring that is! Thank you for posting it, and being honest about your challenges. Soon going to be 46 and in exactly the same position, and the same feelings. But I'll give it a try. It's only 2 weeks....it's only 2 weeks.... -lavendel
