So, all summer long I have been trying to motivate myself to exercise. I have many reasons why I don't. #1 Who has the time? #2 Who has the energy? #3 It's no fun! #4 I always hurt the next morning. The list goes on and on.............

I have decided to take a different approach. I have signed up for a fall semester Pilate's course. Maybe if I am graded on exercise I will be more motivated.

Problem with this is that I have no abs. I think that they might of disappeared with each child that I had. I have a difficult time getting off the floor from a down position. Since Pilate's focuses on the core, I need to find mine really fast. (I don't want my classmates making fun of the old lady now do I?)

This last weekend, I bought a new addition for my gym. It is called the AbCoaster. I am hoping that it will help me find my abs or create new ones. So now I have a treadmill, bike, elliptical, weights machine, free weights and the abcoaster. I should start selling memberships.

Kendall has agreed to get me up at 5:00 every morning to workout for an hour. I know! You are thinking: Right, Mindy get up at that hour! HA! Well, Kendall has gotten me up at 5:50 every morning for the last 3 days. Seems his internal alarm clock is malfunctioning. So you know, 5:50 is the time I get up to be ready for kids to come at 6:00. Thus no workout for me! Well, I have given Kendall a hard time about it. He is usually awake and ready to go....but if he has to exercise it is a different story.

I decided last night to just get a workout in while everyone was gone to YM/YW. I was able to get 20 minutes on the bike, treadmill and elliptical. I did the abcoaster twice for a total of 120 crunches.

I hurt so bad this morning!
