As I mentioned last week, I'm going to make some changes around here. *points at self*
When I was working out last year, I felt good. I wasn't trying to become a supermodel - I was just trying to get healthy. I need that feeling again.
So, this morning I packed my workout gear and joined the gym in my building. I have to say I'm LOVING it. The woman who runs it, Cindy, is just so darn perky! She didn't faint when she weighed and measured me, and I appreciate that. Although I almost did. Yowza. Those are some harsh numbers.
Her gym is having a Biggest Loser competition. It starts today, and runs for 6 weeks. You pay $5 to join. Weigh-in is Monday morning. If you don't gain weight, you don't pay. If you gain, you pay $.10 per ounce up to $2 max. At the end of six weeks, whoever loses the most wins half the money, then the other half is split between 2nd and 3rd place. I don't think I'll win but the motivation of not paying is good. I like that the weigh-in is on Monday, because I tend to indulge on the weekends.
Cindy also suggested that I email her daily what I'm eating and she'd give me tips on how to do better. I'm hoping that will make me a little more cognizant of what I'm eating and try to substitute grapes for Doritos.
Oh, and the upside is I get to go shopping. Remember the bras? Yeah, sports bras might be a good idea when running on the treadmill. I don't want to put out my eye.
PS to my STL readers - Enjoy the weather today. I think we might actually have Spring now. Here's hoping!
