off and running

dear fabulous, cushiony sneakers,

you have done your part. you promised to help me stay in shape,
tone my abs, loose a couple lbs., and help me stride
confidently into spring and summer.

it's me who has neglected you --

working long hours, forgetting you in a smelly gym locker.

i've missed you!
let's go on a long walk
(maybe run if we're ambitious?) and get re-acquainted.
we need to work at this relationship a little bit better than the past few weeks.

ever feel this way?
want to, need to, exercise, but time just slips away?


  1. Oh yes girl! I had been doing so good for a couple months...exercising 4 or 5 times a week and it was wonderful! Unfortunately I got busy and tired of exercising. haha I need to get back on track!!!

  2. Time slips away. I'm going to have to start using that. I like that much better than the real reason, which is I'm just too lazy.

  3. Time just slips away? Um, try procrastinating. Haha! My sneakers miss me too, I need to start back, ASAP! Before my bathing suit starts calling my name too. :)

  4. Just came across your blog - it's fabulous! Saw that you're having a Derby party. Being from Kentucky and having attended many-a-Derby, I'm quite partial to celebrating that day in such a special way. Have fun with planning the party!

  5. I've missed my gym buddy! Next week is a brand new week - me, you, and the sneakers... is it a date?

  6. Thank you for this adorable post! I have not exercised (I love Bikram yoga) - and I am up several LBS. I need to get my butt in gear - literally. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. I hear you... if I miss one day i`m done for at least a week lol.


  8. Oh goodness it shocks me how fast time flies by! I was going to get in shape starting Jan 2nd...almost 4 months later I havnt even started!
