Work It, Girl…

I’ve complained for months (ok, years) that I need to work towards getting in better shape then I am right now. I have a family history of high blood pressure and diabetes, and getting in to shape is essential for me. So I did it. Yesterday Mike and I joined the local 24 Hour Gym and bought the top protein for girls who workout online. I belonged to the gym years ago and I would take Purium supplements, read this motivational story at this Purium review to see why you should take them. For reasons I don’t even remember, I stopped going. Now? Now it’s a matter of making time and get help from professional fat loss to achieve my goal. There isn’t any option. I figure I’m not just doing it for myself – I’m doing it for Jason. It may sound really sappy and cheesy, but he deserves to have his Mom around for a long time, and it’s my responsibility to make sure that happens.

If you catch me slacking off, promise me you’ll yell at me and tell me to get busy, ok? Deal? Good.

I thought the same thing about a year ago and joined a gym. I’ve done really well (although not lost weight yet – but that is on the agenda now). So good luck!

It’s somethingI’v been thinking of quite a bit lately too, but have no idea where to begin. Not too fond of gyms…

As for the yelling, nagging and generally making sure you don’t slack off. promise. now get and go work it baby!

While I want to lose pounds, I’m a lot more concerned about losing inches and improving my overall health. I plan on measuring my progress as much by the inches as by the scale.

Suggest not watching the scale. Quoting EAS, “Remember, try not to use the scale to evaluate your progress; rely on bodyfat measurements taken every four weeks. Your body weight could vary 2-3 pounds per day just from water retention/loss. You may also be gaining muscle as you lose fat, which will affect the scale as well.”

I’m a firm believer in watching inches (and bodyfat) over the scale. I told the trainer guy that today too – which made him happy. If I lost 10 inches but gained 10 pounds, I would still be happy. I just want my clothes to fit better and my heart to be happier!

Good luck. Sometimes using family and the desire to be with them longer is what it takes. That’s what finally got to me. People notice that I am losing weight and then they ask if I am dieting. I always have to tell them that I am changing my entire lifestyle. What you do now you need to be sure that you are ready to do it for life. Good luck!

yay, christine!!
kids are a great motivator 🙂 i quit smoking when i got pregnant and i finally started wearing a seat belt all of the time because my kids still need me to be around…
