Find Your Thing!

I LOVE this TV commercial! I think we can all see our self in her!  I think it's a good reminder that we may not love everything we try but if we continue to try new things then we have a good chance of finding something we love!  I'm always trying new forms of exercise in hope of finding something I'm passionate about! If you are passionate about something, you want to do it!

I did the gym thing for awhile and had to force myself to go, it's just not "my thing".  I tried hiking and loved it and I've been hiking 10 miles every Saturday morning since January 2011. 

I started walking a mile on my lunch hour and find that it really does break up my day and makes my afternoon more pleasant. When it's too hot or too cold or raining, I go to the mall that is close by and walk around there.

I tried mountain biking when I met my boyfriend and now I love that too! 
This week I joined a spin class that is held at my gym at work! I tried spinning years ago when I was totally out of shape and it was just too hard. I'm glad I gave it another chance because I loved it. Not only could I feel it in my legs but the next day my arms and abs were a little sore too! 

So, now my workouts will include Spinning on Monday and Wednesdays (45 minutes each day), Hiking 10 miles on Saturdays (about 4 hours),  walking 1 mile on my lunch hour 3 days a week (about 20 minutes) and an occasional bike ride. I also do arm exercises with resistance bands a few minutes each day while sitting at my desk at work. This is a great exercise if you sit in front of a computer all day!


  1. How funny that you posted about this commercial. Last night it came on and I said to my husband "I love this commercial!". It is very cute:)

  2. I don't know who their ad agency is but they come up with some of the best commercials on TV!

  3. Good for you Cindy! I love your new blog. It really is inspiring. I am 51 (will turn 52 in December)and seeing how you have transformed yourself really is very motivating. Keep up the good work. You look fantastic and must feel great too.

  4. Gosh Cindy, you really are inspiring!
    I know you must feel great. I need to
    listen to you and GET UP off my fanny
    and do SOMETHING!! I just haven't found
    what I'm passionate about. Maybe taking
    one of my five dogs to the park for a
    walk is it....since I love my pets and
    enjoy being outside this time of year.
    Thanks for the motivation!!
