I am not going to be ashamed anymore!


So for the last few posts I have mentioned working out and going to the gym. Well I am not going to be embarassed anymore. I am a member of Curves ! There are no real gyms near Banning, so I looked into Curves. I tried a free trail for a week and a half and then I paid my dues and became an official memeber. It is 30 minute circut training and I love it! It is an all woman facility and it is cute and girly and when my ankle isnt killing me I can get a pretty good workout in the 30 minutes. It is mostly old ladies and we discuss crocheting and knitting while we get our curves on! I can usually go about 4 times a week. It had made me feel alot better and it gives me 1/2 an hour away from the house, the office, Joey and Phi. It is 30 whole minutes when no one needs anything from me. So we were at Grandma Josies on Sunday and we were talking at dinner and it came up how I was going to Curves and really likes it. All of a sudden Grandma Josie disappeared. When she came back she had a pair of Curves workout shoes and a belt that holds an mp3 and bottle of water. She had ordered them from Avon and she gave them both to me. Everything was brand new! My Grandma Josie is the best!

    Hey Elissa whenever you move back to the real world out here, then you could join a real gym. 30 min workout is not enough thats for scrubs...Have to workout 1-1 1/2 hours to get a good workout. Anyway, I need a gym partner.

  3. It takes a lot to get "back" to working out.
    Its great you found a place that you like, it helps with the modivation. We have to drive 20 minutes to our gym but I am getting so excited that we are moving and the condos have a 24 hour gym that's not even a year old and its BEAUTIFUL. Now I will have no excuse.
    I would recommend one thing for you though.
    As you lose the weight get rid of (give to good will) all the clothes you grow out of, if you hang onto them its just as easy to "fall back" into them.
    A friend of mine lost 60 pounds doing this.
