I've been going to the gym the last month. I've had the membership to the Y for a year, and I finally have the time to go, so why not, right? Been doing the "Easy Does It" class, where I'm generally the youngest one there. That's kinda weird. But damn, I'm somewhat out of shape and with my back and ankle, I'm not quite ready to do the step classes like I want. I still do my Wii, DDR and garden like heck, so it's not like I was completely out of shape you know.

At first I started with the class every other day. I then signed up with the FitLinxx program, it's a 12 week program. With this, I put in my code and the machines are set up for me. That's cool! Well, yesterday, I went and did like 5 machines. Then I came home and uprooted a tree. Let me just say that my arms are KILLING me.

This morning, I got on the scale and I'm please to note that I've lost 7 pounds. Yay me! The past week, I noticed that had to go in more holes on my belt and lost a row on my bra (!). So, I'm on my way. As long as I keep up the motivation, which isn't all that hard. I'm a pretty addictive personality and I get hooked on exercise way too quick. At this rate, I'll lose 56lbs by the end of the year!
