Oh the irony!

Okay, so last week I was I was on this workout kick, right? Well, I joined a gym, hired a personal trainer, got my mind right for the rigorous weeks ahead. But now, all that has changed.....drumroll please......because my husband and I are expecting a new addition to the family!

Although this wasn't planned, I'm thrilled about it. We weren't really planning to have another so soon after our daughter, but God definitely knows better than we do so I might as well revel in his infinite wisdom.

It's really early and most people don't believe in sharing the news this fast, but I don't believe in superstition, only God's sovereignty.

More on this later. I just wanted to share the good news.

No pain, no gain!

Okay, so I admit, I've put on a few pounds since I married my husband (just how many, I'll never tell). Now, don't get me wrong, I still look good (and you can take that to the bank!), but the older I get, the more sedentary I become. This is a time-tested recipe for disaster that I choose not to entertain.

As such, I've just joined The Rush. I mulled over this decision to join this mega gym for about 3 months. Finally, I came to conclusion that the elliptical machine currently sitting in my living room is not going to cut it. I need aerobics. More specifically, I need Step. There's something about Step aerobics that really gets me moving.

Today was my first Step class in about 2 years (pray for me tomorrow, the pain is coming!). I got about halfway through the hour long workout before I realized that I was so not the girl I used to be. But, it won't be long at all before my stamina is rebuilt and I'm kickin' butt (and taking names!) again.

I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding in May. It'll be two days after my 4th wedding anniversary and just in time for bikini season.

I'm posting this blog so that I can be held accountable for my goals. I'm doing this for so many reasons. Vanity for one, (I must be honest) and just a plain old healthy fear of cutting my life short with my terrible habits. Heart disease runs in my family and so does diabetes. I'm breaking the cycle baby. Wish me luck!
