I have been on it. Just on it. The workouts are going great!! I am so excited to post my recent accomplishment. I have been wanting to really get a good intense workout on the elliptical machine. Well, that machine is a beast. A freaking franking BEAST. The first time I got finished 3 mins and thought, BUMP This!! I tried again yesterday and was able to do 5-6 mins before almost passing out. Well today........Yes, today......I went in thinking, "Yes I Can. Yes I Can. Yes, I can!" And I did!! I mastered that bad boy. I fought through the pain and completed 23 mins!! Oh what a happy day. Yeah, I did a happy dance when I got off. Yes I did.

I have started doing other works for the last few days and it's going well. I did some weights, crunches, and lunges. I also used another piece of equipment that I can't think of the name for, but I liked it.

So Not A Morning Person!

Yesterday morning I got a really good work in. I spent most of the evening glued to the tube watching the election. Big Congrats to President Obama. I voted! (I still got my workout in though.)

^^This was my line. I know, "What line??"^^ It was lovely.

Today it was hard as nails for me to get out the bed to workout. I am a true pillow hugger and a snooze queen! I am soooo not a morning person!! I was pressed for time when I finally got out of bed. I did a quick 20 min workout on the treadmill. I raised the incline and Oh My Word, that kicked my butt. I felt like I was running up a freaking hill the full workout. I was going to give up and reduce the incline until Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing came on the MP3 player. Yeah, I felt like old folks in a cafe'. I yelled out, "This is my jam!" and kept walking. (Thank goodness this came at the end of the workout and I wasn't running!) Special thanks for the good ole oldies!! I will get another workout in tonight.

From this morning workout. I dont think I post to many more pics. They all will pretty look the same as long as I keep doing the preset workouts.

I am still on it. I have changed the preset on the treadmill from 20 mins to 30 mins. I took a day off today and it was nice not thinking about my next workout or eating right! I had Bar-B-Que and a snickers. Tomorrow is a new day. I will be on the treadmill bright and early and eating correctly!!
