Gym Blues

Sunday, October 07, 2012

I been on an unpredictable weight roller coaster since my last blog. I got down to 164lbs with just eating right. Well today I'm back up to 172.2. Since my last entry, I got so desperate I tried a few weight loss pills. Bad idea! emoticon

While the weight loss pills helped to shed a few pounds, they didn't help to keep it off. Without a new life style, a change in my physical activities and eating habits I was never going reach my goal with pills alone. HELLO!

With this epiphany I've decided to join a gym again (sigh). I haven't been to a gym since 2005. I was never a gym person and I had joined Bally's in 2005...even paid an extra $400 for a personal trainer. I left my Bally's contract still FAT, still oblivious on how to use gym equipment and my self-esteem was worse than when I started at Bally, but today it will be different.

Today, I am starting my first day at the YMCA. I am not only going to take the classes but I've printed out the workout from the SparkPeople page and I'm going to attempt the use the strength training machines. I'm nervous just typing that last sentence (sweat beads). I'm armed with a positive scripture from the Bible Matthew 6: 25, 34 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?...Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (AMEN!!!)

So here I go my SparkPeople family...pray for me!

    @MYBLULLDOGS, Thank you! I was at the YMCA today for two (2) hours. I took a Cycling class and did the strength generated work-out on SparkPeople.com. When I got home I weighed myself (need to learn to stop weighing myself everyday!! Geesssh!). I am now 171 (lost 1 pound!! Yes!!).

    Wow! You and your sister are SUPER WOMEN!!! I pray I will have similar results to report on in the near future. I must say I feel AMAZING after this work-out. The cycling instructor (Sandy) was so helpful and personal. Love her! Today was so great I can't wait to go back tomorrow!
