An observation...

I have found I get much more enjoyment out of watching workout videos than actually doing them.

I turned the television on the other morning and this very lovely long haired island-ish looking woman was doing exercises on a beautiful lush green bed of grass, surrounded by flowers, right next to the sea. It was so confusing because it lulled my mind into a sense that this was a peaceful thing. I decided to join in.

I had to constantly look up at the television because I didn't know any of the moves she was doing, and every time I did, I stopped working out and stood there watching her graceful movement. I imagined myself moving that gracefully, and listening to the sea slowly swooshing against the lava rocks, I sat down and just watched the rest. So much for working out.

I think I'll go down and "watch" another workout show! At least my eyes will get exercise!

That reminds me of a time I was working out to a Cindy Crawford workout video, and I looked up to realize that the couch was full of my roommates' boyfriends all mesmerized by the video. At least I knew they weren't watching me!

No, Lauren... they were looking at you! They just pretended to look at Cindy Crawford when you looked up. Geeze- you'll never get it!
