Feeling the Burn

In July of this year, my cousin Brandon and his fiance Kim are getting married on a mountain in Idaho. While they are preparing all the beautiful details that will make up their wonderful wedding I decided that I need to get back in shape. I will admit ... I have got a lot of jiggle! I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant with Jacob and I never lost all of it.

To be honest, if I am not looking in the mirror I think I look like when I did in high school. I had the twiggy chicken legs and was super skinny. Now, I got a little extra cushion.

On Friday after work I went to Planet Fitness and signed up. The package was awesome! It was a $1 down and $10 a month. So after I handed over my dollar and signed on all the dotted lines I was ready to work out. I know nothing about working out. All I do is run on the treadmill. But I went and I ran. I ended up running 2 miles and I walked 1 mile.

The second I got off the treadmill ... I couldn't feel my legs! And I was dizzy! Maybe I should have started slower than I did.

But the best part is I went back today! Yay for me! I am super sore and achey but I can't wait to start seeing results.

If I wasn't so embarrassed I would take a photo to see before and afters shots but there is NO WAY that is going to happen !

That's all for tonight! I am going to take a nice hot bath and hope I can get out of the tub without pulling a muscle.

Walk in His Strength
