Many Thanks

Oh dear blogging friends, thank you so very, very much for your support and encouragement yesterday! As soon as I got home yesterday, Brant and I decided to head up to the new Lifetime fitness by our house. We had a tour and fell in love! We both joined and can't wait to begin exercising and working out together.
Amanda and Michael are already members, so sister and I met up there at 6 this morning and did some cardio for an hour, then sat in the sauna for a few minutes! It was a great start for the morning. I fell like I have so much energy today! Now - if I can just kick my addition to CFA sweet tea!

As for my treats, I loved the idea several of you had to treat myself every 10 lbs. Since my goal is to lose 30, then that would be three treats!!! So here they are:
First 10 lost - Pedicure
Second 10 lost - New pair of Shoes
Third 10 lost - 1 Hour Massage!!!

I have asked Brant to set a goal too. So he and I are thinking about what kind of treat we want if we BOTH meet our goals! I'll let you know as soon as we make a decision.

Great treats! Those were mine too :) Bobby and I decided when we lost 30 lbs together we'd go on a trip somewhere. Hasn't happened yet, but we're still working on it! I love the way I feel when I get up in the mornings to workout...wish I could remember that when my alarm goes off at 4:45 in the mornings!!!

I'm so jealous of your new gym. I drool every time I drive by it..which is admittedly 3 or 4 times a day. We have a nice gym in the apartment...and it's free. Maybe when we move...we will join there. I like the outside area!! And...when C and I get to goal (he is practically there though) we want to go to the beach.

Ashley, I am so excited for your journey! I know it is hard and sucks at the beginning, I have been there, but it SO fun to look back when you have stuck with something and accomplished what you set out to do. I kept track of my minor victories (like not eating that bowl of Queso... perhaps minor to you, HUGE to me!) and it helped me stay focused when I would get discouraged. It is nice to focus on all the things you HAVE done right and feels so good when you have done what you said you were going to do.
I am praying for you! Remember that God has His hands in all of this... and has some pretty awesome things in store for you if you keep Him at the center of it all!
