On Saturday, I managed to get a total of 50 minutes broken into 2 different sessions (not consecutive). Tuesday, I went to the after work and managed 50 straight minutes on the elliptical. OMG. I couldn't believe that I actually did it. Well, I will have to increase my playlist on MP3 player to cover 60 minutes. I had originally done 2 50 minute playlists. And yesterday was the first time I made it through one entire playlist on the elliptical!
I am so excited to go camping this weekend. My boss just gave me off the whole day Friday rather than 1/2 day. I will be able to get in a good cardio workout earlier in the morning at the gym. I know that we will be very active on the trip (primitive camping), but I love my cardio. I will attempt some early morning jogs/runs. There will also be swimming. See the pic below of me from last trip. I was heavier then. I can't wait to compare the pictures after this trip. I have taken any new pictures since December. This is last year. I sure did look miserable.
My DH was laughing at me last night, he caught me checking out my body in the mirror. I have never been one to check myself out in the mirror to that extent. He was in no way making fun of me. He just found it odd that I was standing in front of the mirror for so long. I was noticing changes and had to check it out for myself.
DH also commented on all my new found confidence. He says that it is awesome that I believe in myself! I don't ever remember being confidant and believing in myself.
