Hi there,

This weekend I had a serious talk with my husband about getting in shape. I said that it only takes

one small goal to start with and then we can build it slowly and steadily from there.

Something small like three sets of 12 push ups (which, who am I kidding, is nearly impossible to do),

or jump rope for three minutes (another one that sounds small but that left me in a sweaty near-asthmatic

attack recently).

We talked about it and settled on a fantastic compromise: we bought a pasta maker.

I’m pretty excited and proud of our decision to take our physical well being from lazy, gluttonous beings

to lazy, gluttonous beings who are in exercise denial and who can now make their own pasta!

Good thing my workplace is supportive. I got myself this little gem:

Work out complete!
