Who Has Time To Exercise?

Here’s the thing: I used to look good without even trying.  I could roll out of bed and run to the store in my pajamas and flip flops, and I still looked amazing.  Over the years, I am not sure what happened.  Even if I didn’t care that much before about how I looked, I pulled it off.  Now when I don’t care about how I look, I appear to be a homeless person.  No joke, a few weeks ago I went out to Walmart at an ungodly hour of the morning for an emergency can of coffee. 

I was still in my pajamas, though I did take the time to brush my teeth (thankfully!), and I was just going to run in, grab the coffee, and run back out.  I dropped my purse on the sidewalk by accident, and bent down to tie my shoe and a person dropped some change into my open purse.  They really thought I was homeless and panhandling! 

Anyhow, to make a long story short, I had to take a long, hard look at myself when I got home (after my coffee of course!), and I realized two things: 1. I am too old to not care about how I look and 2. I need to start exercising.  My pajamas were too tight, too short, and my tennis shoes were used for yard work and not exercise.  So here’s the thing; I have three kids and three dogs.  I didn’t think I had the time to get exercising into my routine.  I started reading reviews online, and I came across a review for the insanity workout.  I was amazed at the results people got from it in such a short amount of time.  It sounds like I can make the time to exercise with this workout routine.  And hopefully I won’t look like a homeless person anymore!
