Back to work

Well, working out, anyway. I've started back at the Y, but this time with a new schedule. I'm going uber-early in the morning. 5:15 early. Yikes. So far, so good. It's day three, and I'm still tired, but hopefully it will get easier soon. I actually like having an hour in the morning to get moving, grab a shower at the Y, and come home ready for action. I don't have to deal with whiny kids the second my feet hit the floor, and that has been so nice. We'll see how I adjust, but I'm really liking it so far, as long as I can stay awake!!!

I also have a gym buddy, Jackie. She's the bomb to get her patooty out the door so early to come hang with me on the treadmill. We're going to start swimming laps in the morning, too, once I can squeeze my arse into a swimsuit. I'm really excited about getting fit again. And here, my friends, I will do the unthinkable and post my weight loss.

Right now, I'm at 233. Yep. You read those astronomically large numbers right. I need to be about 175. You do the math, I can't count that high. So, Fridays are weigh-in days and I will post my results to all of you in cyberspace. Wish me luck!

We kick that arse!!

Traptio: that contraption thing we were using (maybe not correctly) to work our obliques =)

Katy said...

You go girl! Wow, it really takes dedication to get moving that early!

Sandra said...

Go Rachel Go! Keep up the good work.

Kudos to you for posting your numbers! Not me. It is enough that I have stated that I am in double digit clothes (size) and have described my adventures with boot camp.
So we are both up & working out at 5:15 am? We deserve a brownie just for that!

Good luck to you.

good job rachel! once upon a time i used to wake up at 5am and shower at the gym and SHAVE MY LEGS! all without kiddos hanging on me. it's the best. and there's nothing better then starting your day with your workout already behind you.

you and jackie rock. yall should make shirts and wear them every morning that say "Oh Ya, Uh Huh, We Rock."

Ashley said...

You Totally Rock! You have more courage and will power than me! Maybe some of it will rub off on me and I can get my ass moving too!

Courtney said...

Jackie said...
