A new start

So, I often decide I'm going to do things to improve my life - working out, eating better, stop biting my nails, get up with my alarm.

All of them, I've succeeded at for various periods but then my priorities shifted and I ended up caring less and less about what I had decided to do.

This week, I bought a membership to a local 24-hour fitness club for the winter, so I would work out when I couldn't get outside much. Nate and I decided we would work out together at 6 a.m., when he got off work and before I had to go to work.

Well, first I am so not a morning person. In fact, if I could sleep in until 11 a.m. every day without feeling like a slug and without other people thinking I'm a slug, I probably would. I love sleeping!

I want to work out, and I want to spend time with Nate, so I decided I would do this for the winter. And I decided that I would do it without complaining these next few months.

I better keep this up - I already paid for the entire four months of gym membership!

Thanksgiving: Today, I am thankful for the money to get a gym membership. A lot of people don't have the extra money to do something like that, and I am thankful that God has blessed me with a job so I do!


  1. Once you get over the "I could be sleeping" phase I am sure you will really grow to love it. You'll feel very fresh the rest of the day. My problem is taking a few days off for say Thanksgiving or Christmas and then getting back at it again, so watch out for that. I'll be rooting for you and then in January you have to tell me how amazing you feel to help me keep my motivation to start working out again!

  2. I am enjoying it so far, although we've only worked out in the morning once. We have gone in the afternoon and evening the other days, since Nate hasn't been working. I think I'm going to like it though! We'll make sure to encourage you in January, although keeping up with a baby might be workout enough :)
