My Love/Hate Relationship With The Gym

I have been a good girl and hitting the gym again. Was kinda rough there for a few weeks after school got out, I wasn't too thrilled at the thought of having to set my alarm to go work out. But now my friend Jen is going so we are trying to be accountable for each other! I was pleasantly surprised though when I weighed myself for the first time since my 'break', I had only gained 3/4 of a pound! Then I weighed myself today and I had lost 2.25 pounds! GO ME!!! That puts me at 12.5 pound loss and now 5 pounds away from my goal weight. I'm not killing myself to get there but it feels good to be that close. I have started looking into more 5k races and of course, still have the 1/2 marathon in October. My goal right now is to keep consistent in going to the gym throughout the summer!! Baby steps right?

Good for you! 5 pounds is nothing that a day after your period won't cure. LOL Okay...that might be TMI. Anywho....I hope you find some 5K races to do. They are real motivators! I just watched the KC Corporate Challenge duathlon/triathlon a couple of weeks ago and it definitely made me want to get out there and run more.

OK - just caught up on reading for the past 6 posts!! :) Hooray for the weight loss. Glad you got your cabin booked; I've never been to Branson but have heard it is VERY nice. The birthday looked like a lot of fun too. :)

I'm so proud of you Trish! I want just a little of your motivation.

Isn't it so much easier when you have someone pushing you? I'm still waiting to get started...LOL! Have a great weekend!
