No More Living Life Behind the Computer Keyboard
That title makes no sense right? How do you live life behind a keyboard? This is my point! I am done spending my life behind a keyboard. I’m not giving up being a blogger by any means. However, I am going to start getting out of my house more and telling all of you about what is going on in my world.
What Made me Decide This
I truly believe it is Facebook envy. Yes, I truly believe that is a real thing. See, I am friends with people from all of the world on Facebook. I see them posting all the time wonderful adventurous pictures of fun once in a lifetime experiences. Yeah, okay…I kinda exaggerated that part. Most of them are no once in a lifetime experiences but, they are out there living life!
So What Is My First Goal
My first goal is to get in shape. I have been telling myself for awhile that I will be in shape by the time I turn 40. Why 40? Well, my youngest son was scheduled to start kindergarten in two years and after he started kindergarten that would give me one year to get in shape. Yes, if you are doing math I will be 38 years old this year. I am still 37 and hanging on to that for another month right now by the way.
Well, my youngest son was accepted into the pre-K program which has him starting a school a year early! So now I can start my first goal now.
How Am I Going To Do It
I thought about this for a while. I could walk on my treadmill at home but, that is still me staying in my house. I need something that is fun and interactive with other people! A plain old gym membership is not going to get me interacting with other people. I can’t afford a private trainer.
I found a local gym that offers fun interactive engaging exercise with a trainer in a group setting. Perfect! I saw a promotion on their Facebook page for a beginner’s promotion and signed up. No more excuses.
My First Steps
I went shopping for workout clothes. I was going to say ‘new’ workout clothes but, being honest I don’t have any workout clothes in house that I actually use for working out in anymore. Don’t let this picture full you! I think workout clothes make anyone look good. Currently I am a size 14, okay maybe getting up to a 16.
This evening is my first exercise class!
