I did it. I can't believe I did it. Thanks to the final push from the hubby, I did it. I joined the gym I have been contemplating for their 6 Week Weight Loss Challenge. I was coming up with the do it tomorrow excuse and hubby wouldn't let me away with it. He knows me to well. He knew I was chickening out. I have to work on not being so self-conscious. I still can't believe I did it and how upbeat/positive I was walking in the door. I walked in with a smile on my face, heart racing. The ladies behind the counter welcomed me and before they could ask why I was there, I told them with all the excitement I could muster that I wanted in on the challenge. Nerves made that so hard to do..lol. But they were excited for me and so far first impressions are good. I'll know more about how it will be/feel tomorrow after my assessment with my personal trainer Jane. She's very nice and was interested in what I have been doing. Right now she comes across as someone I would make friends with. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I figure I'll dress for the gym and take a change of clothes with me seeing as I'm booked for 8:30 in the morning. Hopefully the weather will co-operate as we are getting snow and blowing snow right now. So along with doing this in-person challenge, I am also participating in a Biggest Loser one here on Sparkpeople. The next 6 weeks will be interesting and I know challenging! Hubby is feeling a little snubbed. He feels he should be all the support I need and I have the equipment at home to do this on my own. I tried explaining it to him. That he is supportive and I appreciate it and love him all the more for it but that I also need to have someone that can push me, help me step up when I need to, and at the same time I'll still be working out at home. He says he understands, I hope so.
My foot is better today. Still really red and nasty looking but I can get my shoe on and am able to move around without much pain. It hurt to much to put my shoe on yesterday, not alone do it up so I tried the yoga on the BL game, but the kids kept interrupting (it was a bug mom day) so I only got 13 minutes done of the 30 I wanted.
I will post tomorrow how the assessment goes!

Why is it when things are going well something has to happen to put a monkey wrench in them???
Yesterday started off great. I went downstairs and with the help of my DS we packed up and moved all the soaps and racks out of the room for my older DS and then set them up again. But before doing that, I decided I needed to sweep and vacuum the area first. Mistake. Well the mistake was I forgot to put on my dust mask. Or was the mistake doing it myself and not having the kids do it...hummm LOL. Hubby and I finished framing in the wall - again no dust mask. I didn't get any workouts done, I felt like I had done a workout with the framing. Or was it more the fact that I was struggling with my breathing. All the dust kicked my asthma into full gear and even this morning I'm still not 100%. Today is putting in the insulation and vapour barrier up. Also need to workout on the treadmill - if I can get my shoe on. Oh, I didn't tell you that part...
Our cat is the cat from h%ll and he does things for a reason, course most times only he knows the reason. Long story short, the cat got in trouble (went to eat/play in the birthday cake), hubby went to pick him and put him downstairs to keep him out of the way, well cat decided to go on his own. But not before causing more trouble. He jumped down and came over and stepped on my bare foot with one of his back feet. He looked back over his shoulder at the hubby with a dirty look, almost a "you aren't getting anything tonight for your birthday" look, dug his nails into my foot and took off for downstairs. He did it all so fast, I didn't get a chance to pull my foot away. I now have a very long, pretty deep scratch on my foot. It is half way up my foot and the main scratch runs right to the joint on my big toe. Hubby feels so bad about it, but it's no one's fault, stuff happens especially with this cat. It hurt like heck last night, not so bad this morning but still pretty sore, and really hurt to put my skidoo boots on when I took the dogs outside this morning. I'm hoping I will be able to get my shoes on today so I can workout. I need to workout to help get my lungs cleared out from yesterday. If not, I'll give the yoga section on the Biggest Loser Wii game a try.
Have a great day everyone!
