I hit a new lowest low this morning!! I'm officially down in the 250's. 259 to be exact. And it feels great!! With ever pound I lose, I gain confidence and motivation and excitement at my new life!!
Yesterday I got a gym membership to a local gym near my house. Its just the basic gym with exercise equipment (eliptical, treadmill, bikes, etc.), free weights, and weight machines. Its only $19.95/mo. which fits perfectly into our tight budget. I was a member a few years ago but... well... we all know where that went. But I went tonight and it was so great! I surprised myself at my endurance! I did 30 minutes of cardio on the recumbent bike. It was exhausting, but it felt GREAT! Then I did 15 min. on the eliptical. I did great which surprised me because the last (and only) time I got on one of those devil-machines, it was pure carnage. I couldn't make my body move the right way. It was like watching a clown run backwards in scuba flippers. But today... today I did it! Only for 15 mins, but I did it! I ended with a 10 minute cool-down on the treadmill on a level 12 incline.
Tomorrow my sister (you know, the super-skinny one) is meeting me at the gym to work out together. I'm actually excited!
In other random news... my bff and I reconciled. I saw on her facebook that she was sick today and I couldn't help myself. I called her to see how she was and left a message saying that I thought this nonsense between us was stupid. When she returned my call we had a great talk. We both apologized and hashed out the major miscommunication we had the other day. Things are probably going to be tense for a while, but I think we're going to be ok. So, thanks for the support ladies.
