One of you asked how I motivate myself to exercise. Motivating oneself to exercise can be one the toughest things you can do or the easiest. If I was asked to go for a run or play a competitive sport like baseball or basketball I will do everything to avoid exercise! If I am doing something I love it is easy. The things I love to do are swimming, jump roping, bike riding and bouncing on my mini trampoline. Hula Huping is fun too! I can easily bounce on the mini trampoline for 30 minutes everyday. I just put on Friends or Seinfeld and bounce until the show is over. If you mean to "start going to the gym" but hate it, likely you won't last.

I got a huge amount done today! Had a court date. Ex now has to pay me $200 less every month. It is going to make it very tough to make it but I know I can. I also filed a bunch of receipts and forms that were supposed to be done a long time ago. It is a good feeling to get things done that I had not had a chance to get to.

Kids are almost out of school. Tomorrow is a trip to the beach! And I am not working! Day off! Whooo hooooo! I love spending time with my kids. They are the best!

I hate exercise, but it's always easier with music. Preferably LOUD music. Why does the ex get to pay less now? That doesn't hardly seem fair.

"If it ain't fun I'm outa here" is my motto. I just love the Richard Simmons exercise tapes. I also have a bunch of tapes for walking. "Walking to the Oldies" are good. It has a DJ and he gets you moving! Now I need to dust them off and get to it!! Getting started is the hardest, but after two weeks it becomes habit.
Good luck to you!
