My First Step to the New Me

I finally did it.

Yesterday I joined a gym.

Kim, one of the girls in my bible study, is a trainer there and has been asking me for months to come and check it out.  So yesterday, I got in my car and decided to do just that.  I fell in love with the staff and the facility.  It wasn't a hard decision by the end of the tour.

I have been on this platform for the last three years.  Knowing that I needed to do something to change my life, but not willing to take that first step to doing it.  I think its because deep down I felt like if I admitted to needing to change is was a way of telling me that I have been failing me.  I was scared of how other people would see me and treat me when (and if) I finally started down this road.  Well I am starting and I am starting in a big way.

Kim is leading a spinning class this morning, and I will be one of the first on the bikes.  I have heard that spinning is a great cardio workout and will get me started in a good direction.  My goal is to go to the gym everyday for the next 3 months.  Even if it is just to get on the treadmill and walk for 45 min, I will be at the gym.  There is a spinning class three nights a week and I plan on attending at least one a week.  Kim is going to train me one night a week and help me through this change.

Now I know that it is customary at this point to throw in a 'before' picture to see where I started as compared to where I will end up.  However, I do not want to show a before until I have an after to go along beside it.  So stay tuned, this journey is about to get crazy.  But its a good one to get started on.
