mi hermanita

My little sister, Allison, was just here this past week to spend time with Cade & I. It was the first time I've seen anyone from my family since I've moved here... six months! It was great to see her, although I wish I would have been able to take her to someplace really cool or interesting. I just don't know of much to do around here in Lake Charles, besides eat, or go bowling (and we did both!).

Her 16th birthday is September 6th, but everyone always mistakes her for being my big sister :)

I miss you already, Allison!

workin' on my fitness

I joined a gym here in Lake Charles on Thursday last week. I've gone every day so far, so I'm pretty proud of that. I stayed for at least an hour and a half each time. I'm trying to get healthy, and I want to lose a few pounds. I'm not sure how much I weigh because I don't own a scale, but I think I'll just take a picture of myself to compare it to later. I'd rather not know how much I weigh, really. I'm not going on a diet or anything, just cutting out unnecessary crap, like soda, excess treats, etc. I'm trying to drink more water, and start eating only when I'm hungry, not when I see food that looks good.

I took a Zumba class so far, and I'm planning on trying a few other classes in time. I'm looking forward to feeling better about myself, and feeling healthier. I love the feeling that I get after I leave the gym... I'm proud of myself for actually going on a regular basis, and I hope I can keep it up.

I'm not going to be talking about this too much on here because I'm not turning this into a fitness blog or anything. Just wanted to mention it :)
