Moving Towards...Success

Ok, so as some of you know I have blogged about my attempt to lose the weight I gained since October (last year). To be exact I gained about 25 pounds. I know that's a lot. I have been working out, but have also found myself derailed more often than not. I am still trying and all that nonsense about the older you get the harder it is, well it's not a myth it is true. But it's doable so it's not an excuse it's just a challenge to work harder and smarter. So tomorrow I am going to our Community Center here on base to start a 9am class. Every weekday they offer a different class for exercise, from step, to core to kickboxing. I am excited because I met a new Marine wife (married in June) and she has been looking for someone to get together with to go to the gym and I said, "well here I am". So tomorrow we are going to go and check it out. I will blog this week to tell you how each day goes. Hubs will be in the field (I know what else is new?) and our hubs are both with 3/4 so it works out awesome. I have also decided to take my c25k on the road. Since the weather is now nice enough to be outside it is a perfect time to get out and run. I know not many people love 29 Palms, and I get it but I have always tried to "bloom where I am planted." That mindset comes from 16 years in this lifestyle and it serves you well to adopt it if you plan on sticking around. The positives I have found here are a lot of the services you pay for on other bases are free here. Free personal trainers! Free aerobics classes! Free movies (well it's a dollar but you get a free soda) so FREE! But not to discount the fact that there are a lot of challenges to being here as well..I will focus on the free stuff. LOL. So this week look forward to my daily workout blog.......
Wish me luck!
