Early New Year's Resolution

Yep, that's right. Wal Mart can put out their Christmas paraphernalia in August so I can make my New Year's resolution in the middle of December. Some of you might know that I joined the ranks in a version of the Atkins Diet about this time last year. Well, there was a lot of success in dieting the Atkins way, like 25 pounds of success, but about 5 pounds of that success I gained back around summer time.

Last week, I hit a "poundage mark" that I made a vow to myself that I was not going to hit again. After all, I was supposed to be going down, not up! After some contemplation and some not-so-level-headed-thinking I landed at the gym every day this week at 5:30 am. The deciding factor was a shopping trip with my friends from church. We talked about how we could all use some butt-kicking motivation and that's all she wrote.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday's are our cardio days. Tuesday's and Thursday's we do "Boot Camp!!" Doesn't that just sound painful? Well, let me tell you, it is! Even the Cool Down is dreadful! :(

I will keep you updated. . . but for now just know that there are some days I may not even be able to get my arms up to the desk to type!

I am including in this blog post a picture of my friends from our fabulous shopping trip and time together. They would not let me take a picture of what they look like at the gym at 5:30 in the morning. Let me be the first to say that they are indeed beautiful not only in appearance, but in their hearts!
