Working Out

Chris and I joined the gym the other day. I have lost weight in the past without the use of a gym but this time around I figured if it is another tool that will help me reach my goals and be healthier then why not. I also liked the idea of Chris and I being able to work out together and push each other every day.

The last time I worked out in a gym was back in the day when I weighed 125 pounds and was in good shape. Going to the gym for the first time recently was really hard for me. Not because I hate to exercise, that I actually like. But because I was so insecure and so worried about everyone watching the fat chick. After we got there though I quickly realized that pretty much everyone there could care less about what I was doing. It didn't take me long to forget about everyone else and just worry about me. I am sure I will feel intimidated for a little while till I settle into my routines and start feeling a little more confident in myself.

Prepare yourself folks cause this fat chick is on the way out. Be prepared for a much skinnier and most likely happier Evey.

We are going to Myrtle Beach in August and I am determined not too look like a beached whale in my bathing suit like I am sure I did last summer. Beach body in the works, stay tuned to see how it turns out :)

I think no matter who you are, we all walk into the gym the first few times and figure that everyone is making fun of us because we don't know what we are doing, or aren't doing it right, or don't look like they think we should... I still get scared of the big guys at my gym...

Good luck with your beach body! I'll be cheering you on from here (where it almost seems pointless to think about the beach 'cause it is still too cold)

It doesn't take long before you start to feel much better and healthier. I think I felt better only 2 weeks after joining the gym this time around. I too am hoping for a swimsuit body soon:)
