Fitness is new to me

I have really thought that before I had learned how to take care of my body. I had eaten better, exercised, and even started caring about the burden I call diabetes. Now, I see more clearly. I have been seeing a personal trainer now and we had a session on Friday where he looked at my body for imbalances and we are working on a meal plan and workout plan for me. I am excited to see the results of facing my fears and allowing myself to be a bit embarassed to try to become healthy. I am excited about the idea of finally losing the weight I have wanted to lose for years. This weight loss endeavor has really been in action since I was 21. I am now 26 and somewhat lighter but not there yet. I knew it was time to get some help and accountability.

Anthony and I are doing great. We are in this weight loss thing together as he hits the gym about 6/7 days a week too. He is going to start seeing a personal trainer pretty soon as well. I have 10 free sessions and then we are going to pay for my trainer. He has 5 free sessions and that will probably be all he needs. Our relationship is going beautifully as we just celebrated our first Valentine's Day together. He got me a 1 carat Diamond necklace and it's gorgeous. I couldn't be more in love with it but I grow more in love with him every single day! I think this is it, he might just be the one.

Well I am going to start on a paper and finish watching Donnie Darko (weird movie) but I love you all and thanks for reading today!

Updates on EricaVille!

Hey everyone. I am not able to post as much as I would like with job, grad school, working out, eating right, boyfriend, and potential planning for the future. Today I write with good news. Anthony and I invested on Wednesday in 3 year memberships to 24 hour fitness. Yes, we are now members of the gym! I went on Wednesday night and tonight and I am really enjoying the challenge of keeping my body happy! We have been reducing our calories since monday and we are trying to keep each other accountable. We have rewards set up for certain landmarks and small rewards each week for meeting our weekly health goals. We keep food journals with each other to make sure we are being honest and forthright about our intake. We are a health team right now! I am proud of us! I feel stronger when he is with me. Isn't love supposed to be like that?

Anyway, I have a huge project for school so I can't stay on tonight but I thought I would update what is happening in our lives right now. Thanks for stopping in!

Universal Studios and other news

So Wednesday is date day and we switch back and forth on deciding what to do with our day. This week was Anthony's turn so he decided that he wanted to introduce me to the world of Universal Studios Hollywood. I have lived out here in California for almost 5 years now and I hadn't been to Universal. We went in the morning and stayed until about 3 and had a great time together. We took some pictures for memories and really enjoyed our time together. In other news, we have a Saturday date day too and we choose that event together so we are thinking of maybe seeing Charlotte's Web and then going to Universal Studios because we bought year passes.

Anthony has to be the coolest boyfriend ever created. He likes to do "girl" things like watching great movies and making memories and creating things together. He is absolutely the most wonderful man I have ever known. We are going into February as our 8th month together and it is literally the happiest 8 months of my life. I have fought myself on it because everytime I am happy I always feel like something will go wrong. I have decided that no matter how hard I have to fight, I am going to reprogram myself to think differently. I am going to think what is true. I am a great person with great characteristics. Why wouldn't a great man want to spend his life with me?

I will keep the blog updated as to what goes on for date day! We have a great time together and I am having fun making adventures with him daily! :)

I love my boy!
