Up in the Gym, working on my Fitness!

The other day, I wrote about how America is so unhealthy.  And as I was reading everyone's awesome comments, I thought to myself, 'wait a minute. I am American. I am included in this.  And those 5 pounds?  Those are my fault. No one forced me to drive through that Carl's Jr...'

I have decided that I need to make a change.  I am still relatively young, and I am not heavy, but I am totally out of shape.  I might be thin, but I'm flabby.  I might not gain a ton of weight, but I don't understand how to eat healthy.  These are things I want to know.  I want to learn to eat healthy, consistently work out, and -- wait for it -- enjoy it.

So I started going to the gym two weeks ago.  I wrote a post about it here.  Three days a week is all I can handle right now, and I hope to up that in the future, but I feel like that is an accomplishment for me at this point.  It is like a war zone in my house trying to get ready for the gym.  Like we need our own reality show and I only have two kids.

I also started a program with something called Advocare.  It starts with a 10 day cleanse to rid your body of toxins and prepare for optimal nutrient absorption and then a 14 day supplements for your weight/workout goal.  So far I am loving the cleanse.  I don't really feel like I am on a cleanse, I am not hungry, just a little tired, but nothing I can't handle.  I have lost 3.5 pounds and I feel so trim already and I am only on day 5 of the whole program.  I can't wait to see more results!! (I understand this program is supplemental and me eating healthier and going to the gym is helping too.  I am not unrealistic!)

All that to say you might see a bit more about fitness and healthy eating up here on the little bloggity blog!  I want to share recipes as I go and maybe even workout tips if I can learn some.  Here is a little shout out to some inspirational blogs involving fitness and being healthy.


Think {Pretty} Thoughts She does fashion posts, is hilarious, and hits the gym everyday.

This post over at Episodes of a Mixed Girl. Funny and inspirational.

Totally Smiten writes about her fitness routine and makes me want to hit the gym.

Tracy Cooks it Right - EVERY RECIPE is healthy.  And since I actually know Tracy, and have eaten some of her goodies, I can attest, they are goooood.

Healthful Sense She is super healthy, maybe even a little out of my league in this department, but hey, a girl could dream, right??

And healthy tips you want to share??  I would love love love for you to share them!  I am looking for all the help I can get.  I might even to a series on this stuff.  Hope you enjoy it!
