... it's time. In fact, it's way past time for me to actually commit to working out and getting healthier. Seriously, for how many years have I been saying, "I just haven't reached that point where I'm really wanting to make a change"?
A body too lumpy and too smooth. Low energy. Bad-news cravings. Muscles, joints that feel wasted, unused, useless.

Public commitment time. Cheesy program time.

I'm taking Self's Challenge. If you want to throw down too, we can be workout buddies.

My name is Brenda and I am a workout fiend.

this woman was singing my song

I'm worried that I have officially stopped. I used to look at people in their late 20s and 30s who were, say, wearing high-wasted jeans and wonder why they couldn't be more with it. My conclusion: At some point in their lives, people stop. They stop changing their desires/tastes along with fads. My guess is it usually happens in their 20s, but is heavily influenced by their teens/adolescence. It's like I've jumped the shark.

The proof?
My newest favorite guilty tv is #1 Single, Lisa Loeb's reality show on E. You say it's a new show, but its clearly a show for people stuck in the 90s, in more ways than one. I know I'm not the only youth who thought someone else borrowed the pen from my diary to write her top single. And somehow, Lisa Loeb still comes off all you-wished-you-said-it-first-y.
Then again, it's also a chance for Sex in the City addicts to soothe their lack-of-new-episode DTs. Lisa's just a semi-famous, reflective artist in NYC, mixing it up at book signings and art shows, being mentioned in New York newspapers and spending time with other supportive single women.

Fortunately there are some TV critics who agree that it's not a bad show (and it shares a producer with that that other "in the City" show- Amish, etc). Anyways, hopefully that doesn't single me out as the girl with dated tastes...
