I Lost

Well, a little anyway. I measured and stepped on the scale. And there is a very teensy tiny difference. Sooo, I will continue to work at the gym, and try making healthy food choices.

It's hard guys. Some days I go to the gym, and it's all I can do to force myself to stay on that elliptical. And I use excuses not to work on the weight machines. You know, such as, "Well, those men have a routine going and if I go in between and mess with their weights, they will get unhappy." Uh huh. Like they CARE! And some days, I'm so tired in only 15 minutes that I'm just dragging. But, I'm trying to persevere. I did better today. I worked several upper and lower body machines, almost 20 minutes on the elliptical, 15 on something I don't know the name of, and 15 on the treadmill. Now, I know that doesn't sound very impressive, but it was constant for all that time, and I would have stayed on the treadmill longer if my feet hadn't started hurting pretty badly. That's a real issue for me. And I did push myself harder than I have been. Going faster and harder is HARD.

In any case, I'm seeing enough result to keep me on the path. And I find that it is helping my attitude as well. Go figure.

That actually sounds pretty good to me. I love the weight machines. I HATE cardio. I'd rather lift weights than get sweaty and huff and puff, of course, weight's not gonna be lost if I don't get my heart rate up.

Good for you! A little is better than nothing...or gaining.
