I've got Spring Fever!

I don't care what the calendar says. It's Spring around here.

So gorgeous outside....it makes me want to play hookie. Do a little clean up on late season boot shopping. And I think - I just might! (It's always helpful when you work near a mall. Or is it hurtful? Hmmm. Either way, it's happening today!)

I went back to karate and kickboxing on Monday. Yup, I'm still sore. But it's a good sore....and that in of itself is like a high. I am a total believer in the "no pain - no gain" concept. So, to have "the burn" makes me feel rejuvenated. (Those of you who workout, know exactly what the "burn" is!). I love to work out to the point of being drenched. It's a cleansing - aside from the fact of knowing you got a good workout - you feel like you got all those impurities out as well.

Exercise is addictive too. I think so. I mean, I haven't been for 5 months - and yet - going back one night gets me all revved up full speed again. And I swear, I'm in better shape than I was Monday morning. hahaha. I know that's not true -but there is definitely a psychological aspect to exercise. I workout - therefore I must look good, because I feel good. Not a bad mindset to feed into.....

So - as I sit here listening to Liz Phair, thinking about how I'm going to go and enjoy a little gratuitous boot shopping (okay, I might be persuaded to buy a fun pair of sandals for the spring!!!) and prepare for tonight's workout - I just can't help but feel a little giddy.

Sigh....
Sometimes, it's just fun being a girl. :)

SPRING? Wait, didn't you just have a blizzard? Now it's our turn. We are under a heavy snow and ice warning for tonight and tomorrow.

I started a new workout last night and plan to do it every day possible between now and Spring Break. I only have 6 weeks to get my body 'kini ready. Zoiks!

Yes, exercise is super addictive. It's just that initial step of actually changing clothes or going to wherever it is you're going to workout that you sometimes need a little push. And I literally read in Shape magazine yesterday (while on the stationary bike, mind you) and there was an article about self-perception and how beneficial exercise is. I mean, it can't possibly ever be bad, can it?

I'm thinking of finally buying those black boots I've always wanted this week as well. That bonus I got is burning a hole in my pocket!

Hmm, Liz Phair...you're extraordinary! And so am I (hint, hint)! But I can't believe you don't have a little Billy playing (not Joel, Ocean!) And on that note, I don't think anyone will guess the real answer to what is not on my iPod. Not yet anyway...

Have fun shopping! I know I will!

Dudette! You know I've been Tae bo'ing and Jurbo Jamming on 2006, and last night i noticed i could actually FEEL, with my fingers, not just internally feel) definite definition in my ab muscles. Even the ridge in the center. SWEET!

We're all gonna be some hot beyotches this summer! ;)

I went boot shopping Saturday. Got an awesome pair of $69 boots for $18, thank you very much! :)

Hope your shopping trip was successful!

I was a woman once. I had to buy all new clothes.

I can still listen to Liz Phair if I'm a guy, right? She's one of my faves.

(As Dale slops through the estrogen, pushing aside a Glamour and ducking the flying boots) I have never understood women's obscession with boots, aren't they uncomfortable?

Woke up to 18, and that will probably be our high today.

I need to catch that exercise bug from you! And good for you, you do look great!

ah, spring... I think we had it in January... it's now bitterly cold here...

I love how the mental euphoria makes you feel beautiful after a workout... or a really great kiss... ;~)
