back to basics
Monday, January 08, 2007
Steve and I joined the YMCA last week. we have been at it. We have come to the realization that it is going to be hard but it is something that we both want and NEED to do.
I was going hard and heavy last week then my weekends come rolling in hitting me full force with temptations and snack mix. It is VERY hard to work at the bar/restaurant this time around. I can always say to myself...'hey at least your not 210!' It takes me a minute or two the slap myself and say...'but you can get back to 210 if you keep up your bad habits!'
I am hoping that working hard during the week will keep me motivated through the weekend! It's a day-to-day process i know. Baby steps.
I am enjoying the gym! There is just so much to do I can hardly wrap my head around it!! Good thing we have our orientation next week and they can get me going in the right direction. Maybe even join in on some swim lessons!
On a different note. I got the email that the Chicago Marathon Registration is now open. I have filled out my application and it is on my bulletin board. I don't have a whole lot of time to waste because it fills up fast! The first 45000!! It would be a trip though! October 7, 2007. A nice post birthday celebration!
