Clarifications

I did Curves for the first time this morning.
At 6am.
Which meant I left my house about 5:45am.
It was VERY dark.

I was a little nervous, but I found the whole thing to be enjoyable.
Very doable.
I'm excited.
Not too much...and only about a minute or two on each machine, and on the aerobic stations in between, so no time to get bored with the whole routine.
Twice around the circuit = a 30 minute workout.
And the best part, because it is a wellness option, Pat's work pays for half of the membership, and the rest of the fee is taken from the next 6 months of paychecks.
Really about the most painless way to join a fitness program there is.
And I felt good all day, and had energy to do a lot of things.

Oh, and that 40 inches is combined from all over my body.
So, 3 inches from my arm + 5 inches from my bust, etc...is what I am looking to lose.
And the pound equivalent is rather high, so we'll just leave it at the inches for now.

I got 12 cards finished.
They actually look a little off color-wise in the picture below, but you get the general idea.
I am happy with what I have accomplished.
Now I just need to repeat it for 3 more days, and I'll be very pleased.

The hardest part is coming up with new designs...that's what I'm working on now.
And being exclusive in my brand usage as I make an individual card.
When you sell them, you can only use one brand at a time...and I usually mix my Stampin' Up and Close To My Heart stuff.

So, a busy day...
and I've got to turn in.
It's 9:10pm for crying out loud.
I'm never ready for bed this early.
I guess all things must change.
Bedtime is the first in this new routine to jump forward 2 hours.

See you tomorrow.
After my 2nd workout.
At Curves.
Just in case you didn't catch that earlier.

Woo Hoo!! Let me be the first to congratulate you on your first day at curves! I love that your husband's work is paying for part of it. That is so awesome. Good for you for getting up and being all motivated and stuff. Hmmmm, maybe someday I can do that too.

congrats on getting up at the crack of dawn. I can't make myself get up early for anything except to catch a flight.

Way to go!

WTG Kris! As a fellow... BMI+30er currently working on self improvement, I know that the first step is one of the hardest. I know you will do great! The cruel irony is that I draw my strength not from within but from competition with my beloved twin. Tell that folically challenged husband of yours I want a weigh-in next July at mom and dad's 50th! I know he is not much for competition... except with me! Keep up the great work!
