The "About Me" that wouldn't fit in "About Me"

I'm a wuss. I'm the girl who always got a "C" in P.E. because she got a "D for trying" on every test, and the extra points for dressing in the damn uniform every day. Although I'm not what you'd call overweight, I am astonishingly out of shape. I get winded taking two flights of stairs. Recently, I started planning a big huge vacation in New Zealand, and then got it into my head that I might want to do vaguely adventurey things -- things like hiking and whitewater rafting, and perhaps scary things that involve free falling in the general vicinity of a canyon.

Now, I'm nothing if not a planner. I've recently joined a gym and started actually going to it. And the past few weeks have involved some rather momentous occasions in my life -- like My Very First Hike and Swimsuit Shopping (not at the same time). It dawned on me that it might be a good idea to keep a journal of my (hopeful) transformation from Couch Potato to Adventure Woman, and then top it all off with entries from my (hopefully) successful trip.

That's the plan.

The whole reason I started a journal (That's why it's called MyFitnessJournal but my working title is What a Difference a Day Makes!) was to keep track of my fitness progress. Well, it quickly took a turn into more entertaining thoughts. I figured, I'll just let my bathroom scale and new GAP jeans be the judge of my fitness.
