I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that it's almost the end of January. i cannot imagine where the time has gone!!! i went to the gym last night... yeah!! It was 7pm and i knew i had 2 hours before bedtime. i had two choices to make... sit at home and read my Kindle & watch television or go to the gym... since what i would've done at home i could do at the gym, i changed clothes and went to the gym.
I love the feeling when i get up on the elliptical and the skinny chicks on either side of me look at me like 'seriously woman?' Then i outrun their butts on the elliptical and smile as they gawk at me. Do people really think fat chicks can't use the ellipticals? One of the girls actually told me 'you go girl' as i busted my butt in the last 10 minutes of the workout. i seriously wanted to get off right then, but i kept going till the end of my 35 minutes.
Calculated time this morning. My yearly goal of 5000 fitness minutes breaks down to 416 minutes a month. Due to the crazy of January, i've only done 135 minutes, which leaves 281 minutes left for the last 8 days of this month. That means in order to reach my goal, i need to do 35 minutes each day in the next 8 days. Now, i don't want to set myself up for failure but i am not totally sure it's going to be possible, but it's definately something i'm going to strive for. If i don't make it, then it's more motivation for next month. Honestly, if i would just do a minimum of 15 minutes a day, each day, then i know i'd make my goal in a month... *sigh*
Okay... so onward and upward and away we go!
