The best step I've ever taken.

I went to the gym today. It wasn't as overwhelming as I thought it would be. In total I was there for 3 hours. The most time I've spent in the gym EVER!!!

I started with a cardio exercise class which was an hour. I left with a jolt in energy I haven't felt in a while. It was great. After I did 15 minutes of cardio on the bike. The rest of the time I spent getting familiar with the essential exercise equipment that will become my BEST FRIEND while loosing weight; and developing a personal health profile with a personal trainer. We didn't have time to complete, but when I go back on Thursday I'll be sure to get all the information like my total weight, my BP and heart rate, and my measurements.

Overal it was a GREAT experience. Going to a gym close to home definately helps, and going to one that is women's only is a bonus.

I'm sooo proud of myself. I hope I will remain motivated and dedicated to this. 1 year 3 months and 1 day till my goal. And many little victories while getting there.

I am Blessed!!!

The first step...

Today I start my orientation at the gym. I FINALLY summed up enough courage to join a gym and I'm nervous. It's 4am and I can't sleep.
I just watched a P90x infomercial, and I'm seriously considering doing P90x. LOL I know ur like "whoa, slow your roll girl" but I think I can. They make it look soo easy on tv (I must be loosing my mind).

I wanna loose weight before I do p90x tho. I think if I start it at my current weight, it'd be toooo hard.
I at least want to be out of the 200 before I start it. Mann, my body would loooook soooooooo good.

I close my eyes and I see the BEST version of me. The me, that I've ALWAYS wanted to be. The me that I was afraid to be. Not anymore.

I have alot of work to do. Today starts the beginning of the end of OLD me.

Be Blessed

Since you came into my life, I feel a change in me

Lately, I've been reading books about biblical womanhood and what it means to be a godly woman. It's something that I've desired to be and I'm happy that it's not just a phase. This is truely something the Lord has put on my heart to help me with my transition to "finding myseld" or becoming the woman I've always wanted to be.

Currently I'm reading a book called Radical Womanhood : Feminine Faith in a Feminist World by Carolyn McCulley. I ordered this book as well as a whole bunch on the topic of godly womanhood and other things from I LOVE to read so this is really exciting that I have new books to add to my library.

I'm almost to the middle of the book, and Im learning so much. The next book I plan on reading is the Raw Food Diet by Natalia Rose, recomended by Rochelle Hanson on FB and YTube. I can't wait.
