Deflating the Inflated

One year ago today I purchased this. I was on this kick that I was going to be healthy. I was going to be around for my kids' kids. I was going to enjoy my late years in life (I'm twenty-sixteen and time is getting short!). It started out really well. I enjoyed the heck out of this thing. Then my DD discovered it. I had to share it with her. Then my boys discovered it. I had to threaten them not to take it outside and bounce it. Eventually, I lost interest in it. At first it was just sitting around and whenever it got in the way, we simply kicked it out of the way. Then I stuck it in my bedroom closet. Then I stuck it in the corner with my photography presentation boxes. Today I had to go in and get a few boxes for my client's photos and it was in the way yet again. So I decided that the best thing to do is deflate it and fold it up and put it back into the box that it came in. Can you believe I still have the box?! How sad.
As I go through with this photo a day challenge and read all of the other blogs I see my behind getting wider than my chair. lol lol I'm going to have to start another challenge for myself. Don't know what just yet, but I'm going to have to do something. Maybe I'll run around the block with my camera gear on my back. lol lol

Have you had your portrait created today?

I have one of those! Somewhere....deflated... :o)

Getting moving is part of my NYR too- my DD loves to do yoga with me- so everyday she harasses me about it- which helps motivate me :)

Love your comments behind the pics. I have one of those too and it just takes up space.

Me too. Deflated as well. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I don't own one though I always get on a kick early in the year about loosing weight, then fall off of the train. I feel your pain.
