Sisterhood Spring Fling Challenge

Although I didn't blog about it last week I did weigh-in and post in my sidebar over there on the left. Week 5 I gained 1.3. This week I'm down 1.4. I have tried to be more conscious of the amount of food I'm putting in my mouth and not eating randomly and when I'm not hungry (which I'm really good at - the eating randomly, that is).

I decided to join a gym. I know. Today was my first day there and because my biggest concern is child care (i.e. will my child stay and have fun?) I was more than a little nervous. Well combine that with the fact that I haven't set foot in a gym in a few years and I had just about talked myself out of going. But I went. And I'm glad I did. My little one thoroughly enjoyed herself, I got a few miles in on the treadmill and am ready to start working this into my daily routine. I have a 9:00 a.m. appointment with a personal trainer who has assured me he'll "whip me into shape" and I'm officially scared. Will someone hold me please?

My friend Lissa takes a muscle work class lovingly called "Death by Barb". I'm totally thinking tomorrow morning's visit will be "Death by Derrick". IF I can move I'll let you know how it went.

This week's goals? Water, water, water. And try not to kill myself at the gym.

    I'm so proud of you for joining the gym, Audrey. I had never ever been to a gym, but overcame that fear a few months back. I'm so glad I did, too. And yes, the personal trainer will be immense help to you. I had one session with one just so I could learn how to use all the scary looking equipment. I'm so glad I did too, because you can really hurt yourself on that stuff if you don't know what you're doing. Just remember to start out with light weight so you don't kill yourself! Drink lots and lots of water afterwards, too. And buy some epsom salts just in case. MWAH! xoxoxox
