I have been going to the gym for the last week and a half now, Tuesday through Friday. A friend, Julie, and I go @ 5:45, in the morning, (Because when else would you go?) and then coming home and starting the day. Now while I am proud of going for the last two weeks, (okay I did miss on day) my legs are sore (40 lunges will do that to you) and I am very tired at the end of the day. I am getting myself though by knowing that soon my energy levels will raise. Although taking those prenatal vitamins helps tremendously; now if I can just remember to take them consistently! I also know that the more weight I take off the more energy I will have since I will not be lugging that extra fat around all the time. Then I will just have the extra 13 lbs attached to my waist! Thankfully my husband has been more than understanding about my going and the with me for barely being able to keep my eyes open as we put our children to bed. Julie and I(or I , at least) will keep it going by knowing that we are not just benefiting ourselves but our families too. We have both noticed that while we feel better about ourselves we are also more patient with our children (And we all know that while the Lord will give us patience for free we tend not to take him up on it nearly enough!) and have a better attitude throughout the day. So Julie, I will see you bright and early in the morning!
