New Goals

Hello everyone! I realize it's been a long while since the last time I posted. Luckily I am feeling better. And I kinda have a pretty good reason why.

Last week Judy, my fellow scheduler, came up with the idea for the two of us to join the YMCA together. This way we could both get healthy. I've been looking for a way and the motivation to get myself healthy and lose some weight. Cause I'm done being unhappy with the way I look. So when Judy suggested us working out together at the Y I was all for it. We're into our second week now. So hopefully we can keep it going long enough that it becomes habit. I think it is good that we joined together. Number 1 it's more fun to work out with someone else. And we're more likely to keep going because we have someone else depending on us to be there.

So for the first week we just did Cardio. You know walking, swimming. Then yesterday I learned how to use the resistance band weight machines. These are good because they are less strenuous on my knee. So that's exciting. Although you get even more sore with the whole strength training concept, but it helps you get more muscle tone and a faster metabolism faster. So that's good all in all too.

Now I'm just in this to get skinny. While losing weight will be nice and hopefully help me to feel better about myself, that's not the only goal. I want to be healthier in general. And I know that losing weight is a part of that. So to the exercise, and the attempts to eat healthier. I've tried to cut down on my unhealthy food eating and I'm also working on the whole drinking pop concept. I'm actually getting better at both of those I think. So yeah. Think good thoughts for me. Blessings to you all!

Yay Sweetie pie! Hang in there. You can do it. Besides like you said, doing it with a friend will help a lot too. Good luck with it all.
