C & I have been going to the gym almost every night since we joined on the 15th. I have to say at first it was difficult, but it's getting a little easier everyday. He is really pushing me/encouraging me and keeping me going! At first I was just doing the elliptical machine for 30 minutes, but Saturday night I started doing strength training, too. Yesterday morning when I woke up, my legs hurt like hell!! But it's the good kind of hurt, no pain no gain (or loss!) Last night was probably the most difficult yet on the elliptical because my legs were so worn out from the night before. I did 15 minutes on that and then did strength training for my arms for about 30 minutes. C likes showing me how the machines work, so I just follow him around. =) He keeps telling me what I great job I'm doing, and that really helps!
So I got to work this morning and weighed myself. Ready for it??
I know it's not a lot, but I only started this on the 9th, so I feel pretty good with my 6.5 pound loss! To everyone that is working on getting healthy, keep it up!
