A fork in the road

Greetings all!

I found out today that my gym is closing. To some this might be a devistating moment; others no big deal. To me, it's a blessing in disguise. I find myself in the middle of the first 2 emotions I pointed out. I have grown very close to my gym and feel very at home there. It is hard to find an all woman's gym that is fully equiped and fun to be at. However, I am not upset. I don't feel like this is going to get in my way of success and I don't feel any less motivated. My trainer is making plans as we speak to accomidate me and she says I will save money this way. I can go to the other location of my gym which is farther away and smaller or I am free to join another gym and still work with my trainer. I don't know what I will do but I am not freaking out. I have faith this will all work out!

I hope you are all having a great week! Eat well, work out, and treat yourself :-) You truly deserve it!

53 lbs down...WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!

We fall down...but we get UP

Greetings all,
I have been away for a while because I was visiting family up North. I started my vaca off very well (bought my healthy groceries and a week gym membership) but as time wore on and graduation party after wedding after graduation party came to pass I faltered, a little. I started to beat myself up, even emailed my trainer freaking out. I had to stop myself and think about something I posted a few weeks ago; if it's a lifestyle change, one day isn't going to kill you. I have to practice what I preach people! If I am going to go this of the rest of my life I have to stop beating myself up when I do something off track and instead I need to praise myself when I do things right. In truth, I'd be throwing a mini-self-party 10 times each day!

This is all I have for now. I have so much to do to get back on my normal time to sit around and blog!

Missed you all!
