Ouch, I hurt...

...just thinking of working out. I am so incredibly embarrassed to admit this, but I haven't had more than a few 30 minute trips on the treadmill in about the last 5 years. It's no wonder I have all of this excess weight. After everything happened with Logan, Jon & I decided that I needed to throw myself into something positive. I decided that it would be exercise. There was a point in my life...say 10 years ago...that I had something that resembled will-power. Not these days. I can find any excuse not to do the whole workout thing, but not this time. I am finally at my 8 week marker and can now go full fledged into an exercise program.

This being said, I have hired a personal trainer. I think that I have like 12 sessions with her, 3/week for the next month. I'm hoping that I can develop a good habit of working out during that month. However, I am SO scared! Hehehe, I told Jon that I'm afraid she is going to make me throw up. I hate doing that but can you imagine someone who hasn't had any form of exercise in this long in their first training session? I can and it doesn't look pretty...from my imagination anyway!

My first session is Saturday right after Lucas' basketball game. Did I say yet how much I already want to back out? I'm going to see it through though...otherwise I'll have to listen to Jon. Plus, who doesn't want several bags of potatoes dropped from their figure?? A girl can dream right?

I think that I'm going to give myself a reward for all of my hardwork at the end of the month. Yes, besides losing some weight & feeling great (hopefully)! Now I just need some reward ideas! Maybe a new purse??? Yea!

How about shopping for some new clothes when the one's you don't have are falling off? That's always exciting! And of course, you'll need a purse to go with all the new clothes.

Hang in there girl...You can do it! Can't wait to hear how it went. Just think of how much better you feel...give it a week or 2 and you'll be excited about going b/c of how you feel afterwards!
REWARDS: Clothes, purse, shoes, the list goes on and on:)
