The end of a long weekend…

I didn’t tell my boyfriend about me doing something that I may or may not have supposed to do, lol!  But he found out just now!!!

I’m thinking about it…hard…

I’ve been thinking about joining Gold’s Gym really hard.  I’ve currently realized that I’m not a solo workout type person.  I do much better when I go to group classes because I feel obligated to continue because I don’t want to look like a quitter while everyone else is still working out.  I’m much more inclined to finish a class when eyes are watching me.  Does that sound weird to you guys?  I’m not sure why I’m like this, but part of the journey is self discovery, right?  Currently they’re offering a special so I’m going to go on Saturday to see what it’s all about and weigh my options.  As of right now, the pros are it’s close, they offer a lot of different group fitness classes that I can go to and the cons are an added expense to my budget. 

Oh well, I’ll definitely let you all know what I decide.

These are my confessions…

30 days of me - I'm behind, please forgive me

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

My daughter has the biggest impact on me.  For her I would do anything, endure everything and give my life for her.  I want to be a good example for her and be a woman she admires.  I love this little lady!!!

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

My short term goals for this month are to find some direction in this lifestyle change that I'm embarking on.  I want to make it something I do consistently and not give up on.  I want to do this because I want to finally scratch some goals off of my list.

Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

Learning about my eating habits, admitting that I have a problem and trying to find solutions to those problems.

~ Stay tuned, vlog post to come this afternoon!!!

Have a great day everybody!!!!!

Day 2 1/2 - 30 days of me

Yes, I'm a little behind aren't I.  But...I'm sitting on my butt tonight so I will blog and comment away.  eeenywhooooo....

Day 02- The meaning behind your Blog name

I was watching a show called Drawn Together and there is a character named Toot.  She's hilarious - a 1920 type character drawn in black and white, she's fat and sloppy and eats everything in her way.  I know, it sounds a little mean for a name, but it's what I don't want to be...soooo when I reach my goal, I will change the name!!!
