Sleep Biking

I got next to no sleep last night. No, that's not what I'm gonna write about...I just wanted to build up the difficulty of my morning for you. I actually got a wonderful workout today. I rode on one of the gym's newer bikes. It was connected to a computer and I got to choose my scenery and compete against other people on my course. It was fantastic! My heart rate was excellent, the sweat was pouring, my legs were aching!

Before I knew it I had done almost 4 miles. I feel great...and really tired. I worked out anyway!!! This is truly is an achievement for me my friends! I've got Hawaii on the brain, especially since it looks like Fargo outside!

Ladies in their 80's...

So, I decided to shake things up a bit at the gym. I bought a punch card to take the classes. Quick note...must vent. My tax dollars went toward the creation of above said gym. We pay a "member" price for a month pass...which is only $5 less than non-members (non-residents) AND we have to pay extra for the classes. I feel ripped off...but it's convenient to go there and works really well with my done!

I took a water aerobics class today. I DO really enjoy water aerobics as it is low on joint impact (my knees). However, this class wasn't for me. Or was it? The first day is kind of always awkward, new steps, etc. So I took it "easy" and found that it wasn't that great of a work out.

I felt kind of...well...REALLY out of place as I was the only one under the age of 80 in there. Is it weird that I wanted to take this class in the first place? lol...not sure on that one still. It wasn't the shallow "easy" class, either. Anyway, I think I might go back one more time to this specific class to give it my all and then gauge what I wanna do from there.

I really do want to take a WA class, just not sure how to fit the other classes into my schedule yet. I was really looking for a change today...GOT IT! Have a great weekend everybody!

Quick Report

Hey everybody...still going strong! No weight loss yet, as I am taking it a day at a time. I do FEEL incredible. I have agreed to be Weight Watcher buddies with Candace. Weigh-in is next Thursday. We are both pretty excited about that!

Ok, so I have set a new goal for myself. Nathan and I have decided that for our 10 year anniversary we are going to take a Hawaiian Cruise. You know what that means??? NO FAT PICTURES! I have 2 years to achieve my goal. I'm pretty excited about this...I know it is a great deal of time, but I've got a great deal of weight to get off.

Anyhow, just wanted to say...I'm still here and going. Thank you for your concern and encouragement, it really means a lot!

I was doing sooo good...

So, I worked out all last week and I absolutely love it!!! I find that I love the eliptical at 9 am while watching "The Price is Right" with closed captioning. I think the only way I can tolerate that show is in closed captioning! I found myself a few times on there like saying out that's too low!
I'm totally lame! But,'s serves it's purpose! I get my exercise and do some "fantasy" shopping!

Anyhow, I found my groove and really enjoy the routine and the way I feel. I went Monday this week and have been home bound since due to Raven's pink eye. If we are all well and clear of the gunk next week, I can't wait to get back!

Thanks for your support. It means so much to me!
