Working out


I’ve started lifting weights in the morning. This morning I had to stop and admire my carefully coordinated nail polish. I know I’m not the only one who does this – another one of my friends tweeted she did the same thing recently, too.

I actually love lifting weights. I haven’t gotten to dead lift capabilities or anything, but in the casual way I do it even THEN I can see how rapidly my body is able to improve itself.

I have been meaning to get into better shape, but the fact that our big motorcycle trip is just 2 1/2 months away means it’s more of a priority. Hundreds of miles a day on a motorcycle is miserable if you don’t have a general level of core strength and muscle competency. Plus there’s there’s the part where I need to fit into my motorcycle pants – and if I was smart I’d save $20 a pound lost so I’d be on my way to picking up a one-piece suit when I hit what I would like to be my steady baseline weight!

I’m blogging a photo a day for the month of February. You should too! #29in29
