In spite of myself

Well, I went to the step aerobics class I had scheduled for myself today, IN SPITE OF MYSELF. Seriously, this is what I do…
I wake up in the morning, give myself a pep talk about how good I will feel in the mornings with this new work out schedule. By lunch time, I am thinking, maybe I will start the exercise program tomorrow, and by the time I get home after school (*even though I left in time to come home do a few things and THEN go*), I have talked myself out of going and into a nap instead.
This is a terrible idea. A nap means not sleeping that night. AND it means I didn’t do what I said I was going to do, therefore letting myself down. Yet, again.
So, I went so far as to lay down in my bed, and finally forced myself out at 4:20, and made it to class, albeit 10 minutes late. I was thinking to myself what an ass I am being 10 minutes late to class because of myself.
But, since 37 is the year of being nice to myself, I forgave myself for the temporary lapse, and I left step aerobics very happy with myself…


…and very sweaty.
In my rush to leave, I was also really happy I remembered my mat for the floor/ab work. Well, I didn’t really remember it…it was in my car.


I love this class because they turn the lights off for the floor work. And, as somebody who is extremely self conscious of their body, and its limitations, I was loving this idea.

Tonight for dinner we are having spaghetti. Between school and aerobics, I put turkey meatballs and a jar of Barilla Toscano sauce with my additions of seasonings…such as salt, pepper, fresh garlic, oregano, and my favorite….


I LOVE Hot and Sweet!!!
I also add a bit of sugar, but don’t tell my husband.

Instead of pasta we are having spaghetti squash, and I am roasting zucchini with the same seasonings (minus sugar) to put on top of the spaghetti.


My mouth is watering…gotta go prep the spaghetti squash.

What’s everybody else having for dinner????

  1. Great job going to the aerobics class. I go through the exact same struggle every AM when it’s time to walk to the gym.

    Believe it or not, we are also have yellow squash tonight, but sauteed, not roasted. I’m serving it with an oven baked crispy French Fry recipe I found at the end of the new Steven King book 11/22/63! Along with grilled BBQ chicken.

    Thanks for writing your blog. I love it!

      You need to share that recipe it sounds delicious. And, I was so stupid, I cooked a butternut squash not spaghetti squash. It was still tasty, but my husband and I got a good laugh out of it.

      Thanks for your encouragement. It sure makes blogging more fun!!
      I am so much better on a schedule, and so now that I am back at school, I blog more. Plus, my life has a little more happening than in the summer, I guess.

      Enjoy your delicious sounding dinner.
