Up in the gym, just working on my fitness...

So today I tried fake baking. Now I know what you are thinking, Its dangerous, its stupid, you don't need it. Look at me in this picture and tell me I don't need a lettle color.

I've done it once in my life before in a laying down bed and it scared the crap outta me. But that was like 2 years ago so I figured I'd give it another try. Yeah, I'm still really freaked out by it. I did the standing up kind cause I've heard its better but no, still scary. For those of you that haven't done it, its like the Chokie on the movie Matilda, without the spikes. For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, its this small little room filled with those long light bulbs and you can't open your eyes or you die. Pretty much that's what it feels like. I'm not sure how people find this relaxing or even fun. I'm trying to decide if it's worth being tan and having to go thru this.

The one I went to was a bit nicer than this, but scary huh!?

In other news, I'm going to the gym regularly! For those who know me, this is HUGE. I'm not what some would call "active" or "coordinated". Throughout high school and even the past two years the gym has been a sort of foreign place to me. I'd go like once a month when I was feeling ambitious or fat. But now I'm a regular. I go like 5 times a week and do yoga at least once a week. I'm only posting about this cause I don't know how long it will last so I want to be able to look back on this and remember the good times.

I start my new job in approximately one hour! Wish me luck!

Good for you, girl! I always try to convince myself that I don't need to exercise, but once I do, I feel like a million bucks. I'm scared of tanning beds though. When I was first married, I went tanning one time and the next morning I had a high fever and ended up passing out because I was so sick. I know what you mean about being white though. I'm just waiting for it to get warmer here so I can go and lay out on the trampoline :). I wish I had a pool :(

Wow, you posted again before the month was over - I was getting in the habbit of only checking every week. Can I check daily???? See you at the gym!

You're awesome! That was one of my favorite posts ever. I had to read it out loud to grandma. She's was laughing pretty hard. I just really really really want to see you do hip hop abs again. That made my week!
