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 :)


  1. good for you (of course, i say that as i'm eating mcdonalds...i know!).

  2. oh good luck with that, stay fit and healthy :D!! :D

  3. May I please suggest?: alternate your running and jumping with swimming or floating around in the pool, too! Even if you just float in a hot tub, it gives your body and muscles a totally different form of exercise that it needs from time to time. REALLY good for your spine and discs to float! Even if you don't swim, try and "float" around in a pool when you're too tired to work out, or are too sore. :)

    One more thing: AND drink water with Eletrolytes if you can. I buy it whenever it's on sale. (NO gatorade...that stuff will reverse the benefits of everything you're doing right now!). Your spine is your well being. Keep those discs happy, with electrolytes and floating around too - not punished with JUST running and jumping! (I had back surgery 3 years ago - I wish someone told me this when I was young!).

    Goooo get 'em Emilie! Best of luck -I hope you lose the weight you want! :)
    Love, Sherilyn
