Hi, my name is Abby, and I am a yo-yo exerciser.

Insert: Hi Abbyyyyy.

But seriously. I get on these kicks, where I decide to exercise like a crazy person and do all of this great stuff at the gym. In high school, I used to swim on a regular basis. Last year, I started doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred dvd. For a week, Collin and I hit the gym. I pay $25 a month to belong to a gym.

And then I get bored (i.e. lazy).

I also realized I require a workout buddy. It must be genetic, because I got a call from my mom today asking me to go walk with her. I usually run a few miles with my dad 3 times a week and my mom walks with my dad several mornings a week.

Guess what happened this week? My dad is out of town. And neither my mom nor I are working out.

So, in this first blog entry, I admit my faults. I am a yo-yo exerciser. However, I will be making strides to become more consistent in order to lose weight, tone up my body, and overall feel healthier. On my 101 in 1001 list, I have ambitions of completing 3 more 5ks, a 10k, and a mini-triathlon before September 2012, so I am going to have to stay on target. If you have any suggestions, I am always open! And feel free to comment :)

Oh Abby I'm so right there with you! I pay $40 for my gym and that's going to increase a lot when I turn 26 soon (eek!) but I don't always feel like I get my money's worth obviously. I am going to try and go along with Ashley's plan to utilize the gym more often. I've always been right there with you though, getting really into something and then dropping off the exercise wagon. Let's keep it together together! : )

It's SO hard not to be a yo-yo exerciser! I have a good feeling this blog will help and keep us accountable!

We'll keep you on track so you can complete your goals! :)
