A workout date!!

My friends Liz and Lidia are awesome! They are twins, and they are fabulous! Both fun, supportive and full of laughter, I'm lucky to have them in my life.

Today I got a text from Lidia, asking me about the stairs! (My second cousin Stephanie also checked in with me about that on facebook! Thanks for the accountability, girls!) That conversation turned to one about the gym, and she mentioned that Liz has been going to 24 hour fitness, which I knew but I hadn't made plans with her, and she suggested that we go together since going with a buddy is always more fun. Not only is it more fun, it's really the only way I'll go! So I text messaged Liz and asked what her gym schedule was like.

We agreed on a permanent workout date in the zumba class (which I've been wanting to try, and I know I'll love it!) at 6 on Thursdays! I'm completely excited! AND I'm glad I'll have an excuse to see Liz weekly! We used to carpool to work and I miss her!

All this new motivation and support is exactly what I need! I feel really good already, and I know that the more weight I lose, the better I'll feel. I'm ready to be done having this label of "overweight". It brings me down and I hate it! Bring on the "Fitness Kate!" Haha that's what my brother-in-law called me last time I was going to the gym regularly.


  1. I had no idea Lidia was behind this! That is so funny that she text you!! I'm so happy she did!!
    I'm excited to meet "Fitness Kate"...I have a feeling she will stick a long this time!! =)
    Date #1, here we go!!!

  2. Fitness Kate and Liz Fo Shiz! hahahaha we're awesome.
    Thanks for the great workout date and encouragement! Fitness Kate will stick around for sure this time, especially with the accountability and pants-kicking from YOU! :)
