I joined LA Fitness this week(my Bally's membership expired) and I am so inspired. The amenities are amazing, from the olympic sized pool, sauna, hot tub, amaazing Kids Club(that means a lot to me, I don't mind taking the kiddies now). I went in Monday for a regular workout, there was an abundance of machines, I had a good workout but I was missing something. This week my workout was amazing, I was so happy and proud of myself for staying the course this week. My mission is to workout and enjoy it because in the fall, I would like to take the fitness test to become a fitness teacher at the gym! I'm excited! I have been watching the teachers and realize I would really enjoy doing this:) I will keep you posted. my workouts for this week were as follows:
Monday Lunch Hour: P90X Plyometrics
Afternoon: Cardio 45 minutes, Weights 15 minutes
Tuesday Lunch: P90X Back and legs
Afternoon: Cycle(the best sweat ever)
Wednesday Lunch: P90X Yoga X
Afternoon: Kickbox Cardio(killer)
Thursday no lunch workout
Afternoon: Circuit Boxing Cardio(amazing).
Friday Afternoon: Bodyworks Plus Abs

I have to tweak the workout schedule, my house has been neglected because I'm not home and am super tired. I have signed my daughter up for Gymnastics and Cheerleading, oh how life is becoming busy, but I will embrace it.

Goals for next week: Workout at least 5 times. Workout twice in one day twice next week and make it to the Aqua Fit and Latin Heat classes. I'm on a Mission!

Who Knew:)

All I had to do was ask and POW I had a freakishly overwhelming response regarding my last post on Facebook and Twitter. I have a friend who has a group that meets every Saturday to discuss weight loss, what they are doing, how they are doing, weigh in, exchange recipes and everyone brings a healthy dish and swap recipes to keep their menu fresh, so they won't get bored and revert back to old habits. I met up with the girls on Saturday. It was a very informative meeting and they are all kind of doing their own thing. I picked up a couple workout buddies and am going to participate in a couple classes this week. I will set up some sort of workout schedule, but I won't take much of my evenings up(spend that time with the kiddies), hopefully I will get back in my early morning regimen(6am) and workout, then work. We shall see what happens.

P90X today, what the heck was I thinking, my legs are killing me. After my shower, I felt great though! I'll keep you posted.

100th Post:)

Hey everyone!

Yes, this is my 100th post! I have been actively taking my meds for my thyroid and they are helping me with my plateau! I'm very excited about that! I have dropped 3lbs. this week and am moving along with this journey. I have 2lbs to get me back to where I was in continuing this journey. My workout buddy is leaving my department at work and my workout session will be changing in about 3 weeks. I love her, she's a great inspiration. She has lost over 100lbs and she just made lifetime for WW. I'm not interested in being that small, but I am interested in being smaller, duh! So, I posted on Facebook appealing to family and friends looking for an after work workout buddy. Thing is I have 2 small kids my hubby works most evenings and I will have to workout with someone who won't have much of an issue with my schedule. I didn't think I would get much response. The response is overwhelming with family and friends who want to do some form of activity and you know people are always good to talk about it, but not so much of being about it. It should be interesting to see how this plays out. I'm not a big fan of using the machines, I get bored easily, I love the classes or workout DVD's or even the fitness for on Demand. I will keep you posted on what happens. Anywho, I just wanted to check in and let you know that I am still chipping away at this weight loss and am still moving forward to changing my life and to become 40 lbs smaller.

By the way, I finally got my camera, so I will posting pictures of myself and vlogging on Youtube! Excited about that.

Finally, I went to the doctor to get a full workup. I was really concerned, my weight loss just stopped! I mean after I had the binge a couple weeks ago, I literally STOPPED losing weight. I was killing myself with all of these crazy workouts I found on Youtube and changing up my eating habits and still nothing was happening. I was staying the same. Don't get me wrong. I'm doing 22lbs, but at this point I could be smaller. My 30th bday is approaching(August) and I have a really fly dress I want to wear, size 10. Gotta reach my goal. Anyway, after testing and ultra sounds and scans. I have a freaking Thyroid issue. My doctor has put me on meds, to try to get in under control and then I will be able to see some results again. I will keep you posted!!
