Week 3,,,,,,,, Still finding my way,,,, and joined a gym!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

no lost and no gain for another week ...... so I joined a gym!!!! emoticon Certainly not my favorite thing,,,,,,, investment of time,,,, investment of money,,, a committment is needed from me ........ awwww emoticon

So I went today to work out ,,,,,,,,,, walked 2 miles on the treadmill and then tried out the weight machines,,,,,,,, to my huge surprise .......... I liked it!!! ???? Ok,, I did not say I loved it but I really did like the ability to just focus on exercise.

I am going to make a committment of going at least 3 times a week during lunch time....... I rather sit and eat lunch with my co-workers BUT I need to take care of myself. Enough with the big booty and thighs from sitting all day long

I have been frustrated..... BUT am trying not to get judgmental with myself or too critical..... you know ,, where you beat yourself up for not accomplishing what you wanted...... I have kids,,,, I have a job,,,, and all those things take time and effort.......... I know that I also have to take care of myself...... but this time,,, I am going to pull out the change for the gym and USE IT! Because I do matter! I want to reach my goals this year..... I want to find the sexy me again. It is never too late unless I quit,,, and I am determined not to quit.

I actually recently read an article that sitting shortens your life,,,, soooo ,,,,, time to get up and move, move, move. I have to find a way to make this workable for me,,,,,,, something that I can stay with..... the gym is only about 5-10 minutes from my work,,, so off I go into the sweaty, smelly world of working out....... and I while at the gym,,, I will remember that :

"The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday"

    Wow! What a big move! Congrats!

Have you heard of treadmill desks? I was debating talking to my work about getting me one!

I have alarms set throughout my day to remind me to walk around so I am not always sitting.

Good luck!!! Yu can do it!!!

    Is it possible for you to get a stand-up desk at your work?
