Did It

I did it. I talked myself into a workout yesterday. I couldn't hardly judge the "lazy" folks on BL for having a lack of motivation when I wasn't doing it myself, so I went to the gym. I said I'd just do a half hour of light cardio, but you see other people actually sweating and start to get jealous. It just sort of happens. You start of with a light cardio routine, and before you know it, you just have to go harder, challenge yourself to do more, harder, better. I had a good workout, I only stayed for thirty minutes, but I did a good thirty minutes, AND I'm feel so much better today. I'm so glad I went.

I went back this a.m., and I am done for today. I did a half hour of cardio followed by a half hour of training with my PT. It is always good to be done early on a Friday. That way you can enjoy Friday evening. We are going on a double date tonight with some friends, so I have that to look forward to. I don't ever go to the movies, because truth be told, I'm cheap. Once in a while I guess it is okay to splurge.

Oh, and I guess since I went to the gym last night I have a weigh in to report. It wasn't as big of a loss as I wanted to report, but it is a loss. 191.2-which is done 1 lb from last week, and only 2.2 lbs from my Halloween goal of 189. Hopefully I can stay on track this weekend, but we have a lot planned. Hope you are all doing swell, yup, I just said swell. I need to get to work. Have a great weekend. I have Monday off, so I'll see you all on Tuesday!

Good job, Amy. Usually once you get yourself going, it does feel good to do it. :)
I watch BL the other night and your right. I loved it. I was in tears at the end when the man had to say goodbye to his wife. :( He was so sad he let her down by not losing anything. And when the friends lost enough to stay safe...they weren't even happy because they knew one of their friend's were going home. *sniffle* Gonna have to watch it again, now. Crap. Finding time to watch tv with 3 little ones is HARD. ~sigh~ ;)

CONGRATS on the loss....ohh you are so gonna make that go no problem!

I can't seem to bring myself to pay almost $20 for us two to go to the movies either. I'd rather rent one for a couple bucks at the corner store. I'm cheap too but it's ok!

Yay for getting to the gym and working out. And I totally hear you on "only 30minutes" and then you get there and the energy from everyone around you leaves you just pumped to push yourself even harder. Good Job!!!
