One time, I exercised

Ok, so I've exercised a ton if we are counting my whole life. But in the past few years, exercise has been put on the back burner as I've tried to balance pregnancy, babies, husband, work, and now staying home. Add onto that the irregular hormones of a woman with PCOS and you get overweight me!
Honestly, I kind of thought that when I started staying home, I would have SO much free time that I'd have the desire to exercise. But free time is at a minimum and when I do get free time, I want to sit on the couch and search the world wide web. :)
Well, tonight I was looking through Pinterest, which is always filled with weightloss/exercise quotes/ideas/pictures, and I thought to myself, "Suzanne, get your butt of the couch. Now!" So because I listen to myself, I went to Youtube and searched for some good music. After deciding on Pink's 'Raise Your Glass', I started to move to the beat. And I was sure if anyone would've been watching they would've made the same face my Bubs makes in the picture below...
...but I was alone. And because I knew I was alone, I moved enough to work up a sweat. And it felt pretty darn good.
It's quite possible that I'm going to make this a nighttime routine. It's also quite possible that that'll be the first and last time that ever happens. Who knows! But I did it tonight. And I'm feeling accomplished and not so lazy.
Now if only I could get up early enough to go running before the kids wake up in the morning...

You can't win 'em all, right? ;)

And that's how Suze sees it.

I used to do that while we were in China! I made a playlist of like 10 fun danc-y songs (looked up a lot of them by Googling good workout songs) and danced like crazy! It really is a good workout and burns a lot of calories if you do it long enough. Go Suz!

You totally inspired me! I'm not motivated enough to go use our fitness center with all the other residents but then I remembered reading your post and thought, "I could do that! Even though it's 11pm". So I danced like a mad man around my computer room! My cat kept staring at me and at first it was awkward but by the end I was actually having fun. So thanks for being the only reason I worked out tonight!
