My Truth Monday: Fitness

I'm linking up with Sunny Days in Second Grade for her new link-up series, 'My Truth Monday.' I think this is a great idea to get to know other bloggers as we share a little more about ourselves.

This past year I have been a couch potato. Other than some speratic walks with my neighbor, I don't don much. I took moving to a small town without a local gym an excuse to not go to a gym. I did join Weight Watchers last year, and that helped keep the weight off, but my body is mushy and I can't seem to find my muscles. 

I've been a broken record about my knee injury, but it's been a big part of my life right now. It has really changed me. I realized the last time I had a knee injury I was around the same weight, which is on the heavy-side for my body. After my last knee injury, I started working out (again) and lost about 25 pounds, ran my first 5K, and looked pretty darn good (in my humble opinion, LOL). It would feel so good to be 25 pounds lighter again! 

The sad thing is, right before I dislocated my knee my teaching partner and I started running with the goal of running a half marathon... Ugh! 

I've already made plans to get an exercise bike as soon as I can and want to bike at least 20 minutes a day. The stationary bike will go in my living room. I don't care if it looks tacky! If I don't look at it, I won't use it! 

Like a lot of you, I need motivation to get back in shape! I'm hoping the blogging community can be a good support to one another in our workout endeavors!  

Head on over to Sunny Days in Second Grade, link on up and share your truth! I'd love to read about your fitness and maybe get motivated by you!
