So for my birthday this year I am giving myself 2 gifts:
1. A smaller body
This is probably the better (and definitely cheaper) of the two gifts. I started this journey on 7/27/09 at 286lbs and by the 3 month mark 10/27/09 (4 days before my Halloween birthday) I expect to be down below 250. The weight loss and the positive healthy habits I have formed are the best gift I could give to myself.
2. A kick-ass elliptical
For years I have tried ellipticals and not liked them, too hard on my knees, too lopsided feeling and on and on. Then on a recent trip to Boston, in the hotel gym I found my best new friend, an elliptical from LifeFitness - I felt like Gillian Michaels was kickin my butt, I had such a good workout. So yes, it is a splurge, and no I am not totally sure I can afford it, but winter is coming and I need every bit of help I can get to push myself and stay on track. So there it is. I ordered it tonight and I don't feel any buyer's remorse. I am tickled pink and I can't wait until it arrives
Pretty good birthday plans don't you think???
