Exercise Motivation Charts

I've been doing regular exercise forever. I did many years of dance and when I stopped that, I continued with regular Jazzercise classes. But I find that even though I attend those classes regularly, I'm not really motivated to work hard once I get there. It's still better than sitting in front of the TV eating potato chips, but all life's little aches and pains seem to get magnified when I start exercising and I hold back. I decided I needed someone like Jillian to inspire me. I don't have a weight problem, just an exercise motivation problem.

So here are my two new personal trainers that have taken a place on the door to my fridge:




And you stitchers can have your own trainers too:

LOL! Love them! I hate it when I go into a TKD class and its not an intense workout. I really want to burn the most calories if I make the effort to go and I get annoyed at myself when I don't work hard!

Thanks Annie!!! The designs are lovely! Bet they would make wonderful embellishments for bags.

I could really use a personal trainer or two. Um, these may not be aggressive enough, though. Thanks anyway. I may give them a try!
