Oh, how my mentality has changed

Maybe this has happened to some of you too. 

I started working out before I started eating on a meal plan. I to enjoy working out, but I really enjoy going to the gym with Janelle and Ashley. I've said it a bunch of time in the past, but working out with friends is the best way to work out. It's like mini therapy sessions each time I go to the gym. I didn't like going to the gym alone though. If we couldn't go together, I wouldn't go to the gym. I would also hope for easy workouts and I would hope that we didn't do anything new! 

Over the past nearly two years that has changed. Now I don't mind going to the gym alone and I don't mind doing new things (unless it's Zumba). I also don't mind going down the Dam/Reserve and walking the trails alone either. Sometimes I actually look forward to going alone and just spending that time by myself and getting things done on my own. 

Other things have changed too. I can't just sit and watch TV anymore. I can sit on the couch for about 10 to 15 minutes before I get antsy and feel like I'm wasting my time. Now when I watch TV I find something to do on the floor. You know, like crunches or stretching. Honestly, I can't just watch TV at all. If I watch TV there is some other activity going on. I spend a lot of  time working on the computer or some other form of work if I'm watching TV. 

That's really how this whole blog came about. I was on the floor doing some crunches and watching reruns of my favorite show. I was thinking about my day tomorrow and trying to hammer out a schedule for myself. Then I was thinking about how I'm going to walk in the AM and lift in the PM. Then I was thinking about how our workouts were getting more intense and I smiled. I was getting excited about how hard and draining the workouts are getting. I was thinking, "Yes, I'm going to lose so much weight." 

This post is all over the place, but I really write just how I think and speak. If you think it's hard to follow along from paragraph to paragraph, you would be freaked out by listening to me in person!  Ha!


  1. I totally followed along with your blog!! LOL! Maybe its because i too, ramble here and there... just to make sure i cover anything... the only thing i havent dont yet, is smile while doing crunches. You are totally on your own there. ;)

  2. Lol I love the way you blog. I can completely relate. I can't sit still either and unless I have gotten a good workout in or it's a designated rest day, I feel like I'm wasting my time if I'm not working out in my spare time lol It's crazy how things change!! Good for you girl!
