Admittedly, not the best pic of me - but despite my makeup melting and looking like I just got out of a pool, I was so happy when I took this at the gym today.
Here is why I was happy:
My 11:00 meeting ended early
My 1pm meeting cancelled
Yup - 11:30-2pm UNEXPECTEDLY FREE
I walked the mile from work to the gym and hit it HARD!
30 minutes Elliptical
15 minutes Rowing
30 minutes Arc Trainer
15 minutes Jacob's ladder stairs
45 minutes bike
WOOOOT - I earned that sweat!!!

Today is day 20 of continuous exercise. I can absolutely tell that my body is settling into a groove. My muscles feel tighter and leaner. I forgot how much energy I get from working out. It is a much better addiction than chocolate! When I first started this journey I went 365 days with over 45 minutes of exercise each day. Right now I am not thinking that far in advance - I just want to get through the first 100 days and then I know the future will take care of itself.
Regarding weighing in - I haven't weighed myself in nearly 3 weeks and I am planning my first weigh in for October 31st (the end of the month, and also my birthday). It has been both a positive and negative experience not getting on the scale each day. On one hand, it is definitely easier for me to keep positive with no scale disappointments. On the other hand, I spend so much time wondering what I weigh, it somewhat defeats the purpose. I think moving forward into November I will try something in between and weigh in every two weeks.
Finally, it is my birthday this week! I love all things Halloween and we generally have a big party to celebrate. This year, with the hurricane and storms coming up the coast we are anticipating winds in excess of 30 mph, so no outside decorations (bummer). I am spending the day decorating inside though and I am looking forward to celebrating my birthday, the weight (pretty sure I am in for a BIG loss) and all of my small steps forward.
Thanks for listening to my rambling!
