Weight Loss

I went to the YMCA today. It was nice to spend some time on myself. I got to spend some time exercising and learning how to do some of the cardio equipment. I made an appointment to learn how to do their circuit training... I am a little nervous, but I need to get these arms ready for the sleeveless dress my Sister-in-law picked for the brides maid dresses. I am excited but worried I will be the one with the wiggly arms and pouchy stomach. So off I will go to the Y as much as I can, learn to lift weights, and keep trying to lose this weight.

Tonight, I went to my good friends graduation party. I ate a little more than I wanted, and had some wine... OK, maybe a little more of that than I wanted too :) but I didn't totally over due it. Now I will have to really work it off and pay attention to what I eat in the next few days. Hopefully I will be able to learn how to use the circuit training machines and it will help me burn some of those calories.

I found that our YMCA really has a lot to offer for families with young children. They even have a homeschooling gym time. I think that is really great, but we can't participate since I am only a Home Daycare and not an actual home school. But I will take my own kids and they can swim while I workout. The Little Guy will have to go to Child Watch, but I think he will like it. Being with me all day, every day has to be hard for my Little Guy. Maybe being with other people and kids will be good for him. We will see. He will start swim lessons this week, and I think he will like that... and be exhausted at bedtime... that way he won't be up until midnight talking and playing. I think it will be good for us all.


  1. Sounds like a great facility for you! That should motivate you to have a nice place to work out! I lost 30 pounds recently but was slowed down by serious knee pain and hormonal imbalance. We have a very nice facility that just opened up down the road from me but I cannot exercise with this knee pain. I'm workign on resolving that and need to lose another 30 pounds. Congratulations on getting a great start on it with the exercise decision and you have a great motivator in the bridesmaid's dress.

  2. Hi there! I followed the link from Tot School to here and wanted to encourage you to keep up the workout! I started back at the Y 3 weeks ago and have lost 14 inches and 12 pounds! You can do it!!!!

  3. Just believe with all your heart that God will get your through this and He will! That's what I've had to do, trust in Him! (((((((((Hugs))))))))) Did you go to Kris's to see the Bloggest Loser competition?? There's a cool prize for the winner!
