hi there...

Sorry about my sorry me, poor me post from yesterday ... the feelings took over and this is my sound board ... its why I started it to begin with. I am not going to keep anything inside anymore, I either share it with my hubby or a friend or I share it with myself (and all of you), put it out there then wait a day for me to chill out a bit and reread it. Most of the time I think - wow thats not really what I think, atleast not most of the time.

Today has been a FABULOUS day of not leaving the house - LOVE it!!! Eric is off today to, he let me sleep in a bit, got a little run in on the treadmill - aiming for a much longer one outside tomarrow at the ma and pa trail. I have eaten healthy all day.

The best part of the day is that a friend of mine decided to be my "healthy lifestyle student" - today we weighed her and measured her and talked about WW points, ect. We talked about food substitutions. She signed up for Sparks people. I do SO much better when I am teaching, it keeps me accountable more. Same was true for school - if I tought it to someone else then I learned it SO much better. I am hoping the same will be true for weight loss. We will keep tabs every other day or so and get together every week or two for weigh ins. I gave her a food journal. Its amazing to see how much I have learned along this journey - sometimes I may not do it 100% but I definately know what to do.

On a side note - Im debating joining a gym. I love the thought of classes - I love exercise classes! There is a gym right next to G's preschool that offers a discount for where my soon to be new job is. I could drop him off at preschool and then get to the gym. They have a huge pool and daycare so I can take G with me and then we could play in the pool. Im alittle worried that I wont be able to afford both the gym and my new found trainer - that is my only hesitancy. Not to mention I have joined gyms a ton of times in the past and not gone, ever. What to do, what to do? What would you do?
