Joined a gym after 5 years!

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Before my boys were born, exercising was a major part of my identity. After Grant was born in 2014, working out fell way off my priority list. I've worked out very sporadically over the past 5 years but nothing consistent. A couple weeks ago I joined a small gym right by our house and I am LOVING it! I forgot how much I loved fitness classes and I feel like a part of my identity is back. The classes kick my butt way more than I kick my own butt! I'm so happy I decided to start going again.

I also joined another DietBet this month. I have been around 119-120 and I'd really rather be at 115. I am doing low carb and "Sober September" to try to lose the 5 pounds. I was 117 this morning but after every weekend I'm back up to 119 even though I'm not drinking and although I'm not as low carb on the weekends as I am on the weekdays, I haven't been too bad. So I'm not sure if I'll get down to 115 by the end of the month. I know it's not the end of the world if I don't, but it would be nice!

We had an awesome summer going to all the San Diego amusement parks, beaches, museums, Santa Barbara, Newport, and lots of other fun stuff! Life is very good!
