My legs are gonna hurt tomorrow!


After months of procrastination. I have finally done it!! I made it to the gym today and worked out. I have been trying to loose more weight since the start of the New Year, but I was really lacking the extra kick from exercise. I must tell you that does make a pretty big difference.

I wanted to get a Wii Fit Plus or the Easy Active. But I just didn’t think I would be able to hold myself accountable enough to do it everyday! That is really the hard part isn’t it??

Today started a new journey for me, and I hope it turns out to be a great one.. I’m sure it will have its struggles and its challenges…but with the right amount of determination you can over come anything!

I know your all wondering how I seem to think that I am going to make it to the gym more than if I was to do it at home. Well for one, I have a workout partner… and that in itself is going to be tremendous help! I will have someone to push me to go, and to push me to do better and work longer!

I’m excited… Today I started my first day with walking 1.7 miles on the treadmill, and then doing 1 mile on the bike. Plus a few leg exercises. Burning more than 350 calories!

Our plan is to go every other day… so not to kill ourselves. Plus we have started a 10 week challenge at the Gym. Watch out!!! I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for the encouragement!

Yay! The first step is going.

I know the feeling having someone to make you responsible. I need that too.

Good for You!!!! Yeah!!! You are right though - having someone else to be accountable to is a huge help.
