Well I found out I have lost 4 pounds so far!! I am very happy that I am starting to loose weight!  I am really enjoying working out.  I want to try out a class there, but I decided to wait until later on.  So far my knee hasn't been hurting while I work out.  So that is good.  I know once I get the weight off my knee issues will be better as well.

  Mom has browncitus again.  But this time we caught it early.  So she is on meds to help with that.  I am just hoping that she feels better.  I would like her to come work out with me as well.

I will write more later on.  Just wanted it to be a quick update today.

Working out...

One of the things I have down as a my New Years resolution was for me to loose weight.  Well a few days ago I looked up the different gyms in my area and went and saw what they are all about.  The first one I went to I didn't really like it.  The music was blaring all over the place, and it just seemed to be more expensive to join.  The second one I went to I decided wasn't for me.  It was a personal trainer, so it would be like taking classes from just him, and after being in PE in high school and having the teacher yelling at everyone. I decided the idea of a trainer just wasn't right for me.  I wanted a place to go and work out the way I want to work out.  The last place I went to I really liked.  The fitness center which has all the machines and things is kinda small, but its nice.  They also have different classes like yoga, hip hop dance, zumba, and pilates.  So I may take a class or two later on.  But for now I am just going to use the cardio machines.  I only have to pay 15 dollars a month!  I think that is easy enough for me to pay.  

So I went there today and worked out for about an hour.  I did 18 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the bike, and then went and tried about 6 or 7 different machines.  I think I did pretty good.  I really had fun working out.  The lady that owns the gym was nice and told me about each machine and showed me how to work them.  I also ended up taking a shower there as well since I actually sweated.  I am going again on Saturday so I can get signed up for the month, and start working out.  I am also going to try and keep track of how much I have lost as well.  I really want to loose 100 pounds before 2015.  So that is a full year to work on it.  Plus I wanna get some new clothes!!!

When I talked to Mike about joining a gym he told me I have to go 3 times a week, or I will be in big trouble...Meaning I will probably be getting spanked.  So I will be going 3 times a week.  He did say that he would be upping how many times I have to go later on.  But for now I have to get used to the 3 days a week and get into having a routine.  :)

I will be sharing more about my weight loss and how working out is going on later on.

Today and a few other things...

Earlier today my parents car broke down.  So Mom had to use my car to go and pick up my Dad.  So it is back to everyone using my car until my parents car gets fixed.  Hopefully it is nothing expensive.  

I worked like 5 and a half hours today.  It went pretty good.  We finally got the truck in.  It was supposed to be there on Monday, but because of the "little" blizzard we had it didn't come till today.  So I ended up putting things away the whole time.  I got all of electronics and housewares done.  I was working on domestics when we had to stop for the night.  I think I did a pretty good job.  

So I have the next two days off of work.  So I am planning on getting something kinda cleaned out of my closet.  And getting them put away for this summer.  Mom was saying something about having a yard sale this summer.  That will be fun, and it is a great way for us to earn some extra cash and get rid of some things that really need to just be gone.  I like having yard sales.  :)  I really like being able to have extra money so I can save up for some fun things I want.

I am really excited about February.  I am going to see my my best friend S in Ohio.  We are going to see the Titanic exhibit that goes around to different museums.  I am really looking forward to seeing it and to also being able to spend time with S.  We are also celebrating my and her birthday, and Christmas as well.  I already got everything for her.  I am going to get the tickets for me to take the bus there on Monday.  Dad don't want me to drive there.  To be honest I don't want to drive there either.  I think we maybe also going out to eat somewhere while I am there as well.  I'm not sure what all we will be doing yet.  I just know I am glad to be able to have a vacation from my house.  Sometimes it is good to just get away for a few days.  :)

Work is going good.  My hours majorly got cut though.  So I am looking into getting a new job.  I am ready for something new that is for sure.  I am tired of my hours being good one week and the next I only get like 11 hours.  Who can live off of that?  No one!  So I am totally ready to move on to something.  I am hoping that I can work as a teachers aid at a daycare.  I think I would be good working with kids...

My Mom goes in for a scope on Friday.  She has been having a lot of trouble with her stomach.  So we are hoping this scope will find out what is going on.  Mom is very worried about it so I am trying to act like I am not worried too about it.  Hopefully its nothing really serious.  My Mom has been through a lot health wise, and it would be nice if things would clear up for her.

So today I was working in the shoe department...I notice whenever it is Sunday the lady that normally does the shoe department is always asking for the day off...And it falls on everyone else to have to do the shoe signs for the department.  It is really getting annoying.  I mean I hate working there, but at least I don't make a big deal when I am on the floor trying to get my job done.  She goes on about how unfair everything is.  Its very annoying.  

I am ready for my day off on Monday.  I do know that I have to work a very early shift on Sunday because I have to do the signs....
