gym what??

Friday, March 14, 2008

So yesterday I did the unthinkable..for me at least. I joined a gym. 24 hour fitness had a one day sale that was unbelievably cheap. $24 sign up fee $24 a month no contract. SWEET! So I will get my butt to the gym and work out a few days a week and do stuff at home the other days. Since I usually leave work between 3-4pm each day I should be able to make it to the gym and get an hour in before the normal 5pm people come in. Yesterday I went for a 45 minute walk with Courtney. We took the dogs out. It was a nice day and we couldnt pass it up.

So far the hardest thing is still the giving up my Dr Pepper. I might have to just swap to caffeine free for a few days and then wean off after that. I have been drinking my water, juice, and hawaiian punch. Its better than what I was drinking and I am staying within my plan so I am ok with that. Still want to get the proteins a bit higher and the carbs down.

    I am a member off the 24 hour fitness in Masfield off 287 and Walnut Creek. Maybe we can all go to a class together. I can work out alone but I hate taking the classes by myself.

    I joined the gym 5 weeks ago and already my muffin top is smaller. You left a comment on my blog page about the buff people at the gym. VERY FEW are actually buff. There's alot of people just like us, trying to get healthy. I joined the one off 360. I'm there on Tuesdays & Thursdays around 5:30 with my husband. We start out on the treadmill, move to the weights, then finish on the bikes.

    I gave up my Dr. Peppers too. It's something I miss the most!

    Cris is a Dr pepper junkie as well. It's funny b/c most of the restaurants in canada don't have it and he tries to not keep it at home b/c then it's just too accessable. He has substituted more coffee since he came here. lol

    I gave up Dr. Pepper too! I also joined 24 hour fitness 1 month ago-Off of 360. I drink ice tea when I remember to make it. I only work out 3-4 times a week to try and avoid being burnt out. They say you should give your muscles 1 day to rest at least if you are weight training.

    Good Luck!

    If I can give up the Dr Pepper, so can you girl!!! You know that I was just as bad as you. If you don't buy it, you can't drink it. That's what I had to do. Good luck. I think I'll stay away from you while you do your DP detox. : P
