Hassling With Gmail and Hooping Day 3

My goal today was to make a fitness Daily Booth account, and link that to a Twitter account. So I wanted to create a new Gmail account to verify Twitter. Only Gmail won't let you make a new account anymore unless you have a cellphone that receives text messages. Which I think is bogus. I rarely use a cell phone and I wouldn't give them my number even if I did. Screw that. Stupid Gmail.  So I used my old Yahoo email instead, but it had gone inactive so I had to jump through hoops getting that running again. So now hopefully this blog, Twitter, Daily Booth and so on are all linked together. And speaking of  hoops here is a photo of today's exercise which is hooping.

Sat. Looking For A Workout

I woke up this morning with a sore neck. My body is going to have to adjust to the new stretching routine. Or I just slept badly on my pillows. But I did some stretches and now my head feels like it's on more or less straight again. It's a beautiful day so I'm looking forward to some outside fitness.

Joel Harper Firming Exercises

I switched on the TV and happened upon fitness trainer Joel Harper doing something called Firming After Fifty, so I did the exercises along with him and his mother! And another person so they could show beginning, intermediate and advanced all at the same time. I don't have any room in my living room to exercise so I stuck to the beginner one so I wouldn't kick over any boxes. But it's perfect for where I'm at right now.

Day 1 I Want My Dancer's Body Back

I saw a very fit 15 year old on and it lit a fire under me to get in shape. I am mortified at the way I look. So this morning I had my boyfriend take full body photos. Usually I 'cheat' and use tricky angles in an effort to look thinner. But that only works online, and when people meet me in real life they see me as I am. I cringe to look at these, but it wouldn't be much of a goal if we didn't have before and after photos right? I'm not sure if I'm brave, stupid or just trying to humiliate myself.
BTW I do have men on my Flickr group that think I'm hot just the way I am. But it's my own eye that has to be content, right?
