It is cold and dreary outside and I don't feel capable of stringing more than a few simple sentences together. Honestly, all I want to do is curl up with a steaming hot mug of peppermint tea and a plate of oatmeal chocolate chop cookies. A pile of decor magazines would be wonderful as well.  Once the weather warms up I am planning on digging my bike out of my husbands sawdust laden workshop and go for a much needed ride.
 I have been doing my "30 day shred" workout video for nearly a month now and have only managed to gain (sniff) five pounds.Needles to say, I am feeling rather sorry for myself, and ready to give up on this whole "weight loss" endeavour. I won't, because I am stubborn, but I am going to take a little break from eating vegetables morning noon and night and have some TOAST!!!!  A perfectly toasted slice of rye bread slathered with butter and sugar free jam or almond butter is one of my favorite snacks.

Truthfully, I just feel low. My life is comfortable, but not terribly adventurous. My days are pretty predictable and I don't have the energy to "shake things up". I have always believed that if I am discontent with the way things are that it is my responsibility to change either the situation or my attitude. In this particular situation a combination of both is required. Right now, the enormity of what needs to change feels  overwhelming and I don't quite  know where to begin.

Hey Jocelyn, Nice blog post. Looks like you and the girls had fun at butterfly world. That "Benefits of a Bicycle" cracked me up especially the part about "the Earth sends a lil extra luv to those on bicycles (this is scientifically documented)" Just discovered that one of our pastors bicycles to work from Langford to Pandora. intense.
As for the part about gaining 5 pounds I'm sure its all muscle. Weight is a poor gauge of healthiness anyhow.

Hope you have a nice day. Your bro
