The Island Of Ms Fit Exercise Equipment…

I bet you are wondering where I am going with this one…

OK….
So I am doing my daily thing, which usually starts out on the computer…
Breakfast follows down the road when I am dying and want to eat my arm. (I know this is not the right way…)
But, I am focused…
I know the “game plan”…
I got the “work from home” groove plan on…

So…Monday morning here, and I can’t remember why I opened the door….
BUT, here’s what I saw when I DID…

Ms. Fit Equipment

You know what I am talking about…These are my “good intention Ms. Fit PIECES”, a vast collection of objects that guaranteed fabulous results in 10 minutes per day or less…

Problem is….
When I ordered all of these pieces I had ONE thing for a tiny moment…
Then I lost it….
Then I seriously CoVerED it up…With layers and layers of “Stuff.”…

Ever listen to George Carlin talk about his “Stuff“? (too funny)…

No big deal… Just ummm, put it in the bonus room. Time goes on and you deal with “IT” by hiding “IT’ away, out of sight. You deal with it, because what do we do? We cover it up. We cover the exercise equipment up and close the door. Don’t deal with that…

We get dressed in a hurry…
It’s the fat girl clothes again…“well, they were comfy yesterday morning“…

But what happens when the fat girl clothes become too tight?…

Do we give up our good intentions?
That is what happened to me when I woke up this morning.

NOW, it is serious…

So what happens now that I have discovered my island of Ms.Fit exercise equipment?…
A. Do I close the door and run??
B. Do I just wear the only pair of pants I own that fit?…
C. Do I buy new clothes?…
D. Do I give away all my super cute clothes and admit that they NO longer fit and I am NO longer healthy?…

Where will the motivation to “just put one foot in front of the other” come from?…
Fashion blogs, fitness blogs, quotes, stories????
PORN>>>; seriously what is it going to take?…
To buy that good ole…MOTIVATION!…

Is it hanging my cute clothes all over the house?…

All the stuff I can't wear

So exercise equipment…
We all buy it…
Why do we hide it..?
I’m a hider…
Are you a hider?….

I need the 12 step “Get off my butt, Go to the Bonus Room, Do something!!“, program today.

Ok…it’s a jungle out there….

  1. “fat bottomed girls” is my all time favorite!!!!!
    i am doing hot yoga now and treadmilling the days i don’t go to yoga. in february i hit the weight i was when i was 9m pregnant with my youngest and i said “well, this madness has got to stop, especially if you plan on sitting on your butt and making jewelry all day”
    GOOD LUCK!!!!!

  2. I have been in the same quandry you are in.Plenty of times. The neat thing is you already have an iconic saying you use often here in your blog which could possibly help you when you are seriously ready. The saying I am thinking of is “Just for Today”. If you try “just for today” to do your exercise routine, and just for today think of how you might eat healthier , you will soon see results which will delight you . All the endorphins going to your brain will keep you coming back for more, too!

    I am not in swimsuit shape right now myself. I am not trying to teach you any lessons, or to judge you. All I know is you have to take it one step at a time! Then all of a sudden, you have done it!

    xox!!! jean!

  3. okay…so what did you do? Well, I don’t have a room for misfits, but I definitely have some “stuff”. I’ve not set foot in the gym in 2 months. I have my back to blame for about two weeks, but no excuse for the rest…well I could come up with some things but I wont. Every Monday I tell myself today is the day..today I came home cooked and didn’t go again..when will the clock turn…don’t know.. maybe we can all be motivators for ourselves.

    Funny thing is..the skinny you can never seem to get in when you’re fat, but they keep stretching when you’re gaining wait and it’s too late to do anything about it right away the morning you wake up and they don’t fit anymore! whew…I feel better now 🙂

    • You crack me up, Dee…We need to have a support goup formed where everyone can call/tweet/im in for supprt and butt whoopin…It would do the body good…hehe…My clothes have screamed…but now I feel that I just can’t put them through it anymore, and need to get busy…

  4. Oh, Lisa, I know what you’re talking about! Been there, done that. Exercise equipment makes such good clothes hangers and catchalls.

    I have a collection of exercise videotapes and DVDs gathering dust. I love ’em and miss ’em. I quit because of injuries and now I’m having an awful time getting started again.

    I think you’re right … one step at a time … one day at a time …

    Today, I did 2 1/2 min. of lunges while brushing my teeth. Don’t laugh. If you’re like me, the best excuse is “I don’t have time for exercise”. So I’m fitting it in with my usual activities … like dashing in and out of my craft room and walking into glass doors. Okay, now you can laugh.

    I am feeling better, stronger, more flexible. Maybe that will motivate me to takes some bigger (exercise) steps.

      I think I may use the tooth brushing trick to get in some exercise…Yesterday I made a bold move and put my treadmill right in the middle of the living room…and actually got on it…thank you for sharing your funny motivating story…I love to hear how other people use innovative methods to get in exercise…Makes me feel less alone and that I can do it “one part at a time”…

  5. Too funny, Lisa! Good luck with all that … I have always loved George Carlin’s rap about stuff, thanks for sharing that.
