Well, folks, I did it. I exercised three times, for ten minutes each time. Yes, I did thirty whole minutes of exercising! Okay, maybe it's not EPIC, but for me, it is quite the feat! :)
So, I think it was Saturday and Monday, I got on the floor and did a bunch of stretching exercises and crunches. Nothing too aerobic. But Friday, well, you won't believe what I did. I was in the basement sitting at the computer minding my own business. I needed to finish up some school work with the kids, but they had come into the basement and had the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory DVD in. (Or is it Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? No matter.) Anyway, they weren't watching the the movie, they were practicing the Oompa Loompa dance. You see, their grandmother, for whatever reason, wants them to learn it so that they can perform it for her next time she sees them. (Oh, it's Charlie, BTW, my son just checked.)
So, you do all know where I'm going with this, right? Yes. It's true. I stood in my basement, with my four youngest, and followed along with the Oompa Loompa as my "dance instructor" and spent ten minutes dancing. It just about killed me and I barely made it up the stairs to get my inhaler. But I did it. All it took was an Oompa Loompa to show me the way! LOL Of course, if you read my post last week, you also know that I made a committment to God that I would do my three ten minute sessions. I will do the same this coming week.
I want an Oompa Loompa NOW!!! LOL
