Fine! You stupid jerk.

okay, so I weighed myself this morning. I gained weight. It sucks. But while I was in the shower sulking I realized that I am the only one to blame and that I have not really been doing everything I could and should be doing. I should be drinking more water, and not eating the pop tarts that I had this morning. But mostly I need to start an exercise program. We have a treadmill (which I haven't used in months) and we just got a Bowflex about 2 weeks ago (which I haven't used for more than 10 minutes since we got it). I guess I just really don't know where to start and I don't want to do the wrong things, so that is my new plan. Try and find something or someone that can help me come up with a schedule and teach me how to use the stuff I've got. So if anyone has any tips on how to use a bowflex and how to stay motivated and not burn myself out like I did all the other times I have started let me know. Thanks!

The only motivation I have found is going to the gym. I wish I could just work out at home and save the money, but I can't. I've been going to the gym for five years and despite my many weight flucuations I've always felt good about myself and my health. I go to Gold's and they are doing 30 days free right now. Let me know if you want to try it! I love the group fitness classes!

I am a member at Crossroads and they are awesome, no group classes though, but I just never make it there. I was trying to go in the morning but then I would want to go to bed earlier and the whole reason for going in the moring was so I could spend time with Jordan after work and get housework done. But I would get home from work @ 6, make dinner, clean up and be dragging myself to bed because I was so tired and I knew I would have to be up at 5 to get to the gym again. It just seems like when I make time to go to the gym everything at home suffers. I just need to learn how to better divide my time and I was hoping that having the treadmill and stuff at home would be easier but I still can't get myself to use it! lol. I am hopeless. :)
