On my way...

Just checking in for the week. Curves is going beautifully. Really, this is exactly what I needed. In case you didn't know...Curves is so much more than a workout. They measure you, weigh you and motivate you. They have this really cool thing called Curves's a computer chip that tells me when I need to workout harder, how many calories I burned and where my weak and strong parts are. Truly inspiring!

I began keeping a food journal today, too. I mean we both know that a food journal is truly necessary for weight loss. It keeps us accountable. After I buy a new memory card for my camera I am gonna start posting my food again, too. That always helps me.

I am moving forward and feeling like this is my summer to reach my goal!!:)

All Fired Up!

It's been a few weeks...time has flown by!! Lizzy's Benefit is over and was a big success! You can read all about it on my other blog here.

By the end of planning for the Benefit I knew I had to change the way I was living. I was eating very poorly...lots of sugar and fast food, migraine headaches were becoming an everyday occurrence and exercise was dwindling to one day a week if I really made an effort. In short I was becoming disgusted with my behaviors.

So I sat down and really thought about all the weight loss blogs I read and fitness books and magazines and realized what was missing. I was bored. I hated my workouts. The gym just wasn't doing it for me anymore. And while I love my walks with my friend...she couldn't go daily with me and on days she didn't go...I didn't go. I knew I needed something fun and exciting and new to jumpstart my fitness and weight loss and I found it!!!

We have had Curves in Maryville for years but for whatever reason...I just didn't think it was for me. Well, was I ever wrong. I LOVE it!

So, here I am...with 5 Curves workouts under my belt and already feeling stronger, healthier and more confident! When I make the choice to workout in the morning...the rest of my choices become better. I choose fruit over a cookie or a salad over chips. Yes, one choice can make all the difference!!

How are you all doing? I haven't been by your blogs in a few weeks...I will catch up!!!!
