      yes! i always do better with a workout buddy! I joined a different gym so i could work out with a friend! It sounds silly, but I have also done a weight loss contract before. We promised to work out 20 min a day (anything would count as long as you were moving, like just going for a walk) and if we missed a day, both of us had to do an extra 20 minutes. we did it for a month. it worked!

        Sorry, it was a long weekend for me, so I forget that yesterday was Monday. So, on the weekend and last night. Tell us what you did girls.

        Tami, did you join the gym?
        Okay, so I'm a week late, but I joined the Y after work today. Tomorrow at 1pm I go for my Wellness Assessment / Test and to get back on an exercise program. I'm a little bummed b/c they told me the military price was no initiation fee and $19/month for both of us ... but tonight they said $60/month.

        I still signed up though!!!

        The pounds are starting to creep back up (well, more than creep) and I hate for all the work I did this past winter to not even be noticeable when Tom gets home. So I figure the way my schedule is ... can fit in 7 workouts before he flies back in ... and if I do enough cardio ... hopefully it will help, at least a little bit!

        Plus, I went to the store last night and bought fruit and healthy sandwich stuff (I ually eat ssoo bad .... pasta, cream sauce, etc etc)...

            I went yesterday and got my Wellness Assessment. Above average in some areas, below average in others. We've decided my goal is to lose 8 pounds and a 5% reduction in body fat.

            We got started with a new workout plan ... and I can hardly move today, I am SSOO sore. I planned on going back today, but the Y is closed for some reason. I figured getting back there again today would help ease the soreness. So, I'll be going tomorrow instead.

            OMG ... I can't believe how not working out since March can make me ssoo sore and out of shape again. Onward, though!!! I will be in tip-top shape come April 2008!!!

            Help keep me on target, ladies!!!

              I know exactly how you feel. I went 5 days a week, and then had to stop for a while to take care of family (I would say 6 weeks total) and when I went back I was shocked at how much my body changed, I could not lift the same weights and I got tired really fast. Its crazy.

              Good for you getting back at it again.
