Hi Everyone! I was happy to write this post today and seriously I couldn't wait for Monday since Friday afternoon! I've taken my new beginning on a weight loss/health mission and joined a better gym and have taken a real pledge to get this party started. Wow, endorphins make you cheesy. lol. Hmm...now where to begin...

My old gym, Planet Fitness,  one of the aka The Biggest Loser TV Show sponsor gyms, was just not cutting out for me anymore.  I had joined a few years ago & for $10/month how could you resist? In the end of 2013 I just didn't want to go there anymore. They had pizza Mondays, bagel Wednesdays, it was far from my home, and it didn't have any fitness classes. If my favorite show was on, I had to make sure a treadmill or bike was open in front of the hanging TV and sometimes there wasn't one. I don't want to say I didn't have a great experience at Planet Fitness, but I outgrew it I feel. I needed more, much more. 

On my way home from Planet Fitness I always passed what I called the "fancy" gym and sometimes had to sop for gym goers to pass the street in front of my car. This past Friday...I finally entered the "fancy" gym. Out of all the comparable prices for gyms with classes and multiple fitness options this one was surprisingly not as expensive as I thought it would be and I immediately felt overcome by this sensation of "Yes, I need that extra boot in the ass to come here" & "I need to be a part of this place." I signed up immediately and the best part is it is 3 minutes from my house. Yup, 3 minutes. No excuses, no whining, I have no excuse now to not get in shape. Not one. 

My Real treadmill workout summary...1/13/14.

Today I have to thank How I met your mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, & a lil bit of The Hangover 2 for occupying me while I walked 5 miles. I'm not going to lie, my feet fucking hurt (need to get a shoe insert) but I feel damn good and proud of myself! It was my first day back so I took it slow  and didn't go too crazy. I'm not sure what came over me! I just walked & jogged a little bit (emphasis on little bit) and I did it. 

Day #1 -> Go to the Gym/Eat Well -> Complete! 

Now I just have to keep this up! Tomorrow at the new gym there is a hot detox yoga class I'm dying to try and then later in the week I'm going to try a beginner spin class. I feel like such a nerd but I'm really excited for all of this! It's been a long time since I was this excited and motivated so I'm going to run with it and pray I don't lose too much steam! =)

Oh and ladies get a Victoria Secret sports bra. It will change your life. I got an Incredible by Victoria's Secret Sport Bra and I'm kicking myself I didn't buy more than one when they were on sale the weeks of Christmas! 


Side Note: 
I almost didn't want to put how much I weight I lost this week because I knew it wouldn't be much. It was my time of the month last week and I always gain a few pounds of water weight bloat each month. I don't care what the fitness guru's or TV Shows say...some women should not even try to lose weight during their periods because let's face it, your body is going to do whatever the hell it wants for however many days it wants to do it. I can't wait for next week's numbers though!! Those are going to be results, I hope! =) 

How's your diet/health check/weight loss journey coming along?
I'd love to hear! 
We are all in this together! 

{If you comment please come back later, I'm going to try and reply to everyone's comment! I'm going to try and make Monday Check-In interactive hopefully! Much love, Chloe! }

  2. Right now I'm waiting for the pinched nerve in my back to go away (so close) and my new workout clothes to show up. Till then I've been cutting back on what I eat, choosing healthier foods and drinking TONS of water.

    Nice job so far lady!
