Hold up, wait a minute!

First I just gotta say how much I love my bloggy friends. You're there to pump me up when I'm in need of inspiration and there to support me when I'm doubting life or love. My last post? Those comments? Loved. Thank you.

Got to share something hilarious with you guys:

Go there. Send someone a card. Send ME a card if you want. I love the clever humor, the dryness, the inappropriateness. Shoot me your email if you want to play and I'll pick a card out for you to brighten your day. (Or at least give you a giggle.)

Something that made me happy yesterday: I went running. Let's face it, I ain't in my lower twenties anymore. I can't have a burger and just sit on my ass. This chic is a foodie and has to burn for it. That's all there is to it.

I won't bore with all the details, but basically I decided I seriously need to be more consistent with cardio for my health and to be honest, my body's appearance. (Man I hate admitting that!) I got my Victorias Secret swim suit in yesterday and I was nothing less than depressed looking at my almost-thirty body in the mirror, remembering my body at 23.

I've only ran twice this week and I'm building up my distance slowly so I won't burn out. I can already feel the benefits. I have so much energy today. I hope I can keep it up.

So you're wondering why exercise would make me happy, right? I walk into the apartment yesterday after my run and J's on the floor in the tiny living room doing pushups. My jewelry supplies are sprawled out all over one corner, folded laundry and bridal magazines on the other, and J's in the pathway between them doing pushups. I couldn't help but smile.

What do I do? I grab my weights and get inches beside him to do my arms. Me, him and all my stuff in that tiny space, it made me truly happy. Silly happy. Why? Because soon, very soon, we will have all the space we need to work out side by side!! *squeal*

That's all I got for today. I've been more inspired to blog lately. I wonder if that has to do with my exercise? Hmm... Don't forget to look at that card site peeps! Great for at least a good chuckle. Happy Hump Day!

Haha-I love that card site! Thanks for sharing!

I'm with you on the working out. I close to thirty too, and I go through periods where I keep it up for a while, and then I'll go months without doing anything. I'm hoping I can just make it part of my daily routine, and keep it up. I feel so much better when I do it! :)

Hope you're having a good day!
