B.I.T. of Colorful Gear

I come from a very fit family.

When writing my original “Balancing it Right” resolution I stopped only at the food aspect, due mostly because I am still getting my blogger footing. I think it’s important for me to clarify though, that although I am a potato chip junky, my real issue is actually getting my lazy behind up to exercise.

I am definitely an awkward case. I am to skinny to be called “fat” but I am not actually skinny.

And then it loops back to my fit family. They are all VERY fit. My parents are both in their fifties and do some kind of work out or physical activity nearly every day. My mother’s favorite hobby is tennis. Not normal. And the fit factor doesn’t stop at them. My older brother is obsessed with going to the gym and drinking his protein shakes to the point where an intervention almost had to ensue. And the little bro, his fit obsession lies in ROTC training, yes he actually finds waking up at 5:00 AM and doing drills fun.

Then there is me. And this is where this post comes from. I have been trying my hardest for the month of April to actually do something physical, mostly running, at least a few times a week. And what I have found is the best way to get me motivated… colorful cute clothing.

It’s the secret that all lazy stylish girls should know. The clothes are what will get you off the couch, and the endorphins keep you off of it.

Breaking out of Hiatus

I have a really hard time sticking to my choices. Whether it be something simple, like the paint color of my kitchen, or something more serious, like the relationship development with a significant others, I have a hard time sticking to the selections I make. I find myself either second guessing, or just flat out not liking the original decision, which I then quickly recount.

I chose to start this blog to keep track of my goals and resolutions for 2013. My issue, however, comes back to my inability to make a choice stay fastened to my mind; that and the fact that in the back of my head I keep thinking ‘who’d every care what I, Sarah Finkelstein, really think?’ So I’m going to come out of hiatus and try, yet again, to make this work. To stick to my goals, choices, and resolutions.

I’m trying my best to change. It’s just difficult when decisions are the so easy to go back on.
