Recently I was offered a new job, in a brand new city.  EKKKK! So I packed up half of my life and headed out of town.  Why only half packed? Well the real big move won’t happen until September. But you can still imagine the stresses that come with starting a new job, in a new city.  I knew it wasn’t going to be easy.  As long as I had my workouts to keep me sane, I was going to be fine.

Yesterday I worked out with my trainer before I hit the road.  I swear he had it in for me yesterday.  What an evil man!  LOL But it’s all good, I needed it.  I was chatting with a few friends before I left, and they asked me what I was going to do for my workouts. I told them I would use the hotel gym.  My friend Luanne gasped, laughed and then proceeded to tell me that it was going to suck. My response to her was, it can’t be that bad.

WELL….it sure is a nice hotel.  The workout room not so much!  LOL

It took me back to a time when I first started working out.  I was training at this little shady gym in Niagara Falls, where it was only $200 cash for a membership. No wait, they had newer equipment than what I experienced today.  Alright….maybe that sounds more dramatic than it really is.  🙂

Regardless, I was determined to get a workout in.  Which I totally did! I just stayed focused, I was there to get my sweat on and that’s what I did.

It’s all about making the best of the situation.

Now I can get started with my day.

Wish me luck, it feels like the first day of school for me.  🙂

P.S I’m going gym shopping this evening!  And I hate gym shopping!!  I rather be shopping for a formal dress, or shopping for jeans!

Go Ahead…ask me

Oops!  I guess I’m guilty of not updating my blog. 

I might have been too busy to blog, but not too busy to workout.  I’m still getting my workouts in, and I’m feeling better than I have in a long time.

In fact, my workouts have helped me get over a few large bumps on a road called life.  My workouts have helped me stay focused, and they have kept me away from eating crap.

When I workout, I workout hard.  And it’s been nice having others notice that I am working hard.  Members at the gym stop to ask me how my workouts are going, and I love it!!! I love talking about fitness. I also love to hear about their goals, and their stories. We are supporting each other, and support can go a long way.  

The members inspire me, and they make me want to work a little harder each time. 

I’m down close to 20 inches from head to toe, and for the first time in a really long time I feel as if I have control.
