Family * Travel * Food

Day One at the gym

Well today marked the first official day that the whole family went to the gym. Since I already knew that I am totally out of shape I took it easy and did little things. The first step was stepping on the dreaded scale. I was so nervous because I know I have put on some weight. Would you believe that I was way less than expected? I was so shocked that I weighed myself at another scale to be sure. I am really happy about it. Now I don't need to worry about my weight but more about toning up what I already have. My goal is to wear a fitted t-shirt and jeans and not have any rolls or muffin-top showing. I know I can do it and will do it. The girls had a blast playing volleyball, jogging, and playing basketball. We took William into the big kids room/babysitting room to let him get a feel of the room. He did pretty well and really seemed to enjoy playing on the slide, climbing things he shouldn't and taking a peek at the little baby that was in there. I got to meet one of the babysitters and it seems like things are really going to work out.

I was walking the indoor track with the girls when they decided they wanted to go for a jog. I got jealous and felt like they ditched me so I joined them. Hmm, halfway through I had a lovely cramp. Baby steps I told myself. I also played a little volleyball with the kids. I thought I was going to snap my wrists! Wow, I know I will be feeling it tomorrow. Oh well a little at a time and then hopefully I will get better and be able to hang! I will post updates on my progress. Maybe Dwayne will post about his goals and progress as well. Now off to down a half gallon of water...okay 2 glasses :)


  1. Sounds like tons of fun!!!!

  2. LOL! I totally do that too! ( Get on the 2 different scales that is) I actually went and bought two different scales just to be sure!!!!

  3. It sounds like a wonderful gym. God luck with your fitness plan.

  4. I absolutely love what you're doing! You're an inspiration. I only hope that I can afford a gym membership sometime in the near future. I mean I know I can workout at home, but to me it's just not the same. I'm looking forward to reading your future posts on fitness :)

  5. yes the discomfort is completely natural and will wear off. imagine how much more fun and exciting it will be when it does.

    weighing less than expected had to have been a great feeling.
