Hopping back on the scale…

….was a terriying moment, but then something happened; it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought.

After months of just totally letting go and not caring (getting comfortable living with someone does that, I guess…) I thought I would have EASILY had a 20lb+ gain. I am happy to report that it’s only been about a 5lb gain since October. I’m absolutely flabbergasted that it wasn’t more, especially going through the holidays, but I suppose I wasn’t doing as terribly as I originally thought. It has for sure made me happy today.

I’m also stoked to report that I beat my goal that I set yesterday. Here’s the totals for my elliptical workout:

Time: 20 minutes, 7 seconds

Strides: 1,266 (beats 1,165 yesterday)

Calories: 134.7 (beats 129.2 yesterday)

Average RPM: 31 (beats about 29 yesterday)

It’s the little accomplishments that really add up to alot, I suppose. It’s not a HUGE difference, but I set a goal, and I exceeded it, even by just a tiny bit. That puts a smile on my face that you can’t even imagine. It tells me that I can do it if I take things one step at a time. I am really enjoying these achievements!

Favorite song of the wor out was Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”. The playlist today was mainly newer songs, all incredibly upbeat and fun. Made the 20 minutes absolulely fly by. Watching everyone else work hard tells me that I can do it, too. Maybe someday there will be someone starting out, and they will be inspired by my blog. If I can help one person achieve their goals, that would be an incredible feeling.

That’s about all I have for tonight, guys. Hope you had a wonderful day! Here’s to tomorrow! *raises glass of water*
