The Journey Begins
For part of my New Year’s Resolution of getting fit, losing weight, blah, blah, blah… I decided to start a blog. But when I decided to actually sit down & start my blog, I could NOT think of a title that wasn’t over done or super cheesy. Naturally, I turned it over to my Facebook friends and posted a contest. My friends were given the challenge of helping me with the title with the promise that the winner would get to come work out with me at my gym. I was blown away at how many potential titles were posted. My friends are good! In the end, I couldn’t settle on just one, so I took my favorites and morphed it into a blog title and Workin’ It Out: Melting Away & Finding Myself was born. Even though that title is great, I just can’t let 52 Pounds in 52 Weeks: My Journey to a Healthy New Me go so it will be a year-long series on my blog! Thank you friends for all your help & support already!!
When I started this naming contest, the weight loss & fitness tips started coming in. I’ve started browsing My Fitness Pal, which I am excited to use as a diet & fitness tracker. I want to learn more about Fitbit, which sounds really awesome. Then a friend suggested I try the Couch to 5K plan and another friend said we should go ahead and sign up for one so that we are committed. Then at work today, co-workers suggested we get a team together for the Color Run coming to our area this summer. I have NEVER been excited at the thought of running, but the Color Run sounds like fun (oh goodness, I just used “running” and “fun” in the same sentence)! I feel like the journey is finally rolling!
