TMI – Exercise woes

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.03.2007

I did NOT exercise yesterday. In fact, I haven’t exercised in about a week. Why can’t I just do it???? Why can’t I do it consistently?

I know it’s good for me. I feel better after I do it—energized and refreshed.

I sleep better.

My backaches go away.

I’m burning calories and building muscle. I’m increasing my metabolism.

I usually make my calorie count for the day when I exercise.


I am supposed to be a logical person, most of the time. Why am I such a lazy bum when it comes to exercise? This is ridiculous. I’m such a basketcase.

I’ve played all the mind games, and they just don’t work. I exercise when I feel like it, which is about once or twice a week. I don’t exercise when I feel lazy. I’d like to exercise 5 days a week, ideally.

I think I need a good swift kick in the head.


  1. here, here. me too.

  2. I'm one of those people who needs some kind of motivation (outside of the this-can-save-your-life stuff - that just isn't enough :-)

    How about some incentives? Get some little star stickers and put one up on the calendar every day you exercise. Give yourself some reward every time you have four consecutive stars. Or, add up the minutes you exercise. When you hit 1000 minutes you get a reward.

    It's funny how the serious stuff, like health benefits don't seem to be enough, but give me a gold shiny star, and I'm there!

  3. I have the same problem...

  4. A swift kick in the head usually results in less excercise, not more. Trust me on this one.

  5. Here comes my foot!

    HAHAHA. JK. Unless you really want that swift kick. I could use the exercise.

  6. Man, I'm the same way. And I just finished some intensive (and expensive) physical therapy on my knees that the PT told me had to keep up. Have I? Um, no.

    Maybe I'll try Stephenie's gold star idea. :)

  7. I used to be a coach and a P.E. teacher. Yeah. So you would think that the motivator could motivate herself. Ummm. No. I HAVE been hitting a bag for my golf swing and I play golf, but doing my workouts? Ok, part of it is I have no one to go workout with. I'm a people person.

    I did get some exercise DVDs--one is's Power 90 (ouch,) and one is a dance one and another is a walking one. I also have a Billy Blanks' one. Sigh. Put it into the machine, push play, lie on the floor and complain....

    I used to say, "Tomorrow is another day to get with it." Now I say, "I can't believe I'm still breathing in and out, so it's a good day!"

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
