It felt good

Friday, December 21, 2007

It felt so good to be back to the gym after a week of the flu. I forced myself to not let the fatigue get me down so I jumped on the Elliptical for 32mins with intervals then onto the recumbent bike for 20mins to keep my heart rate up.

I felt so good after. It's so funny to see people watch me on the machines as if they are saying, this girl is really doing this thang, I better keep up with her.

I actually had a girl last week tell me that I motivated her after she watched me on the elliptical for 16mins. She too was a little on the heavy size but no where near my size. It made me feel really good about what I am doing.

Thanks for the support guys! It's really nice when people do not look down on you in your times of sickness and assume that I am just complaining or being lazy. I am motivated to get this weight off but things happen which are out of my control.
