Life’s Short, Keep It Fun!

I remember when I was losing weight and getting really into health and fitness, it was so much fun to me! It was so novel.

A coworker at the time said to me, “You’re only so into this because it’s fun to you right now. It won’t always be fun.”

I don’t know about that, buddy. I think I’ve kept it fun. There’s a whole lot in this life that isn’t fun, so it’s my personal philosophy to have as much freaking fun as I can where I can, and that includes making my workouts fun to me, too. I’m choosing to work out, so I’m going to enjoy my workouts.

It took me a long time to get into strength training because I didn’t think it was fun, but working with Jess is keeping it interesting and fun. She sends me workouts, and then I do them on my own. When I was lifting on Wednesday, I realized that maybe this lifting thing could be fun as I’d get better and stuff. Just like running.

Speaking of fun, I had a lot of it last night.

Last night, I went to our Junior League Golden Tree shopping event. Cocktails and shopping? Okay, twist my arm. Last night, they honored those celebrating milestone anniversaries. I’ve been a member for five years, so I got this lovely white rose, which I miraculously did not lose despite carrying it all night. I behaved and didn’t buy much other than some AMAZING nuts my friend Mary makes and a Christmas ornament.

I hung out with my buddy Shannon, who I hadn’t seen since I spent a week on her couch during the hurricane.

And this awesome lady.

She was going to the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale yesterday, and I asked if I could give her money and sizes, if she could pick out a few things for me.

SHE CAME BACK WITH 12 DRESSES FOR LESS THAN $200. I am a very happy camper right now.

How do you keep working out fun? More importantly, how do you keep life fun?
