I'm the first type.
I am a very spontaneous person who is easily distracted.
I love to have a good time and I don't have a problem when plans change - I just quickly change with them and still have a good time!
I tend to get a lot done and I work really hard, but I also tend to work hard only on things I want to do. I procrastinate projects that I really don't want to spend my time doing or I just don't do them. It's a really good thing I enjoy cleaning and organizing or ....... *shudder*
School was hard for me not because I wasn't smart but because I didn't want to do what they told me to do. I like to choose my own books and learn what I want to know.....but math? Why in the world would I want to do math?!!
My husband is the other type.
He has a very difficult time with any changes to his plans. One of our very first arguments when we were first married involved me wanting to make a quick detour to grab the mail on our way out of our trailer court but because it wasn't in our plans Dave did not want to do it!
He plans things well ahead of time and sticks with his lists.
Where I make hasty decisions and purchases.....he will go over and over every detail of any decision he has to make. (I kind of hate shopping with him. It can take him hours to purchase a pair of shoes. But I have to admit....his carefulness really pays off in the long run.)
He will start right away on projects that need to be done and sometimes things take a long time because he is extremely careful. But they are always done well - even the ones he really doesn't want to do.
I'm sure people wonder how we get along, but it really isn't a problem at all. We have our own personalities but we adore each other and love the differences as well as similarities we share. In many ways we have balanced each other out and helped each other become better.
Lately though I wish some of his self control would rub off on me a little more. Don't get me wrong....I'm happy with who I am and all but one of the things I hate to do more than anything in this world is excercise!! After every baby I have to get back into an excercise schedule to lose the 50 pounds I gained. It always takes me about a year to lose the weight and I have done it with every baby...........until now.
I find myself 40 or so pounds over what I should be and I can't seem to find a stupid excercise program I want to follow. I have no problem with healthy eating. We eat very well: whole grains, lowfat proteins, lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, and very little meat. I feel great but my body is completely out of shape.
So I am wondering if anyone out there has found the best, most fun and enjoyable excercise program out there? Please share! If you happen to be one of those people that can eat whatever you want and never excercise but still stay a size 2.........I still love you!
I totally enjoyed running with my good friend in the mornings until she moved. I totally enjoyed meeting friends at the church across the street and doing circuits and running together. But I didn't enjoy going to the gym by myself and I don't enjoy aerobics by myself. Apparently I'm a social excerciser!! Anybody want to excercise with me?!!
spring break coming soon
a fun busy weekend
