Welcome back!

So, I’ve missed blogging. It’s been too long. For some crazy reason, I’ve deleted all my old posts. Not sure why. Oh well. I guess I’ll start over. Kinda exciting, ya know? Sometimes a new start is just what you need. This blog has had so many versions it’s pathetic! Well, I guess that’s me. It’s how I roll.

So what’s new? For me, a lot has changed. I’m getting back to the gym. 🙂 Its been a struggle since August. I gained all but 10 lbs of my 45 lbs I lost. It was a hard pill to swallow. However, after feeling sorry for myself for about three months, I just realized that I need to get over it and make it happen. And I did. 🙂

I’m happy to report that I’m down 10 lbs, which makes it 20 from my original starting weight. 🙂 I’m very very happy about that. This time, it’s been coming off slower than before. I think it’s a good thing. I have been doing the elliptical a whole bunch. When I first started going to the gym, I couldn’t do the elliptical. It was too hard for me. I could tire too easily. Now, I’m doing at least 5k on it daily!!

In May 2010, I ran a mile for the first time ever. It took about 17 minutes on the treadmill. Now, on the elliptical, my best mile (today, 3/29/2011) is 5 minutes and 10 seconds. My first 5k was in June 2010. It took about 45 minutes on the treadmill. Today (3/29/2011) I did it on the elliptical in 19 minutes and 50 seconds. My stamina has vastly improved.

I’m seeing results! It’s so rewarding.

Hmm, what else is new? I’m an assistant manager now. That’s good.

Well, I’m beat and I’m going to the gym in the morning. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon!!!
