I Am Becoming Someone I NEVER Thought I Would Become

What the heck is this world coming to?! Ahhh!!!

Ok so get this...I have become a gym rat over the past 2 months! Who would have thought? I used to cringe at the thought of going to the gym. But now I itch to go every day. Heck I was sick today and I still wanted to go to the gym! If I don't go it drives me nuts and I miss it. Yep, you heard that right, I miss it! I look forward to going everyday. It is so weird to think that I actually enjoy going to the gym! Also I have become very conscious of what I eat...which is like a complete 180 of how I was even back in December. I used to basically live off fast food and eating out with friends. Since January I have eaten at a fast food place once (only because of traveling) and I even managed to eat "healthy" even then. I also only go out to eat with friends maybe once a week..sometimes once every couple weeks. Such an improvement!! You have no idea how happy and proud of myself I am!! I have also managed to lose 17 pounds since January! I feel great and hope to keep it up!! I love this new and improved me! 

Anyone have any tips on things that have helped you to be healthy and stay active? I am always looking for new items and tips that will help me stay on track!

**I have been working on starting another blog to track my daily ups and downs with getting healthy and fit....I hope to get it up and running sometime this week! I hope y'all will choose to follow and give me tips and motivation!**

XOXO,

Courtney,
You are such an inspiration. What a tremendous journey! 17 pounds, that's outstanding. :) what's the secret to learning to like the gym? I can never get myself past the two week point before fading.
