Working I come!

OK, so realistically I KNOW I will NEVER look like these girls once I start working out...BUT, I had a good laugh when I saw this picture and just had to post it!

I can honestly say that I am at my "target weight"
(which I have to say feels great to be able to say that...and I am NOT bragging...just relishing that I can actually say it!)
physically where I would like to be!

So I have been majorly OFF the work out band wagon for roughly ohhhhhh let's say almost 3 years now. Once I got pregnant with Bryn and since I have had her, me working out has come to an abrupt HALT to say the least!! I do have to say I have missed it and I am trying to be therefore I am telling you all that I am going to go work out tomorrow morning...that is Wednesday, September 8 2010...just so we are clear! ha ha

I am tired of being tired and having NO energy! Having an almost 2 year old that STILL doesn't sleep through the night doesn't help...but, me not working out isn't helping it is only making things worse.
So, I will be back on the treadmill...which I don't mind doing, but I don't like it either. It is necessary though for me to get my mind and body back to feeling like myself again. I just want to FEEL better and be able to think more clearly. I truly believe what I eat really affects my mind as well...does that make sense??

I used to really enjoy lifting weights and having that as part of my work out as well. I just want to tone up as well...everything seems to be heading south a lot quicker than I would like
ha! I am excited to get a routine back and getting myself back to where I know I need to be. I am looking forward to going back to the is just actually getting there that tends to be the hard part. Bryn will come with me as there is a babysitting place in the gym that I will be going that will be good.

Going to bed now so I can try to get as much sleep as possible so I can be motivated to get my butt to the gym first thing once the kids are off to school...wish me luck =)

Oh good for you!!!

Being motivated and staying there is the hardest thing ever. I love that you wrote it down to help be accountable. I am cheering you on.

P.S. To be honest, I have never stepped into a gym ever. I honestly don't know what that is like. I've always just worked out at home or on the streets (running). Maybe I will give that a try someday too. Keep us posted!

Loved this post. Gosh I need to read your blog more regulary. Thanks for a good night of reading. I just came from the saddest blog ever who just lost a 18 month old girl, I was in tears and needed something to make me smile. Keep me posted on what you do for exercise. I am poor and don't have a gym anymore.
