To gym or not to gym


So I have again started going to the gym regularly. I go in spurts and I need to stop and just GO!

I feel good when I go, there's no doubt about that. I get the kids off to school and then I hit the gym, so easy to do right??

So why am I starting this again right before the holidays??? Am I crazy??? LOL

I am setting two goals. 10 pounds by New Years and then another 10 pounds by my birthday, Feb. 16th. That's 20 pounds in 3 months. Pretty agressive but I will be happy with whatever I accomplish. Greg has set a goal of 30 pounds by then as well, I don't think he needs to but if he wants to, I will help him as well!
Wish me luck :)

Good luck. Over the holidays is a great time to start, just think of the weight you will keep off. I need to get motivated and get to the gym!

Brandy said...

Good Luck! At least you aren't using the holidays as an excuse. Like me.

I belonged to the gym years ago and did go regularly. My current job even offers me a discount with them, but I would never have time to go. Always an excuse.

Good luck to ya :D

Go for it girl!! That's awesome!! You guys can do it. My husband has just lost 35 lbs in 2 months!! He's been working at it and I'm so proud of him... and now he loves the gym and hates when he misses. I'm like you, I go in spirts. I can go for awhile, and then I rest for awhile, LOL.

Oh and that pic is hilarious!!

And I wish my Baby Blue would put on that red hat.. she was pretty clingy to me... and didn't want to wear it. :)

I think it's doable...but I HATE the gym..I seem to forget that fact every few years, only to join again, and hate it again. I would do better with a really good workout buddy, but I'm not that lucky.

BTW my birthday is 2/14...maybe I can lose with you!!

Good luck! I am trying to lose weight too! This is probably the WORST time to begin that. And that picture is hysterical!

Heather said...

Woo, you go, girl!! I just re-started going to the gym (I'm a spurter too LOL) and am hoping, hoping, hoping to be a bit smaller and more in shape by Christmas... we shall see how I do! I also aim to head straight to the gym as soon as my kiddo is on the bus for school. Here's to sticking to it! :)

Cheers!

You rock those LBS away! I admire you and that cute kitty with the head band...

If you are going to lose weight this is the perfect time. I have a hard time around the holidays.

Z's Mom said...

That is such a cute little kitty.

Good luck to you! I too need to set some goals and get my butt moving. I think its good to do before the holidays....if nothing else, maybe you can workout and eat and not gain even if you aren't losing as fast as you want. You can do it though....you seem like the type of person that can do it when you set your mind to it!
