It’s been a great day today just as I had hoped it would be. My Texas relatives came in this afternoon, and I was able to workout at the YMCA again. When I started my weight-loss journey I couldn’t last much more than 30 seconds on the elliptical machine. Today my goal was to do 30 minutes, and I exceeded that with a lot of sweat and just a little effort.
I love how my body feels these days. My workouts feel much more intense than they did a year ago, but my energy level has increased astoundingly. After not working out last week I thought I might be tired when I got back into my routine earlier this week, but getting back into my routine has has the opposite effect. My heart loves working out, and my mind loves the clarity it finds at the gym. It is so clear that my body craves exercise!
The water challenge has been over for almost a week, but I’m still drinking at least 8 glasses per day. Today I’ve consumed almost 18 glasses, and it’s safe to say that I’ll have had at least 19 before bed.
Dad and I enjoyed dinner at Texas Roadhouse with a couple of our favorite family members, Tom and Linda. Have I mentioned how happy we are that they’re here? 🙂 Tomorrow we’re going to dig a pit so Tom can grill dinner for us. He doesn’t mess around when it comes to grilling! I haven’t taken any pictures with Tom yet (though I will tomorrow.) But trust me, you’d rather look at Linda. 🙂 Tom and Dad are sitting near me right now, and they agree. Ha…
I think it’s going to be a lovely weekend, and I’m looking forward to making memories that I’ll keep for years to come. I’ll be back to share those memories soon…Until then, drink water and enjoy your weekend!
