Beginning Week Six

I almost forgot to step on the scale this morning...because I knew I was getting to go to my new gym. I think that's probably a good attitude adjustment.

I only lost a fifth of a pound this week, and I promise, I've put away all the leftover Valentine's Day candy. And I will get back to cooking dinners instead of snacking for supper.

Elliptical training is getting easier and easier. I did the weight loss program on the elliptical this morning, and while it was hard, my heart rate didn't go above 171 (it averaged around 163)--I consider this pretty awesome, as the resistance and incline was intermittent, and even on the low setting, higher than I've ever set it, and my heart rate usually peaks at 185 (yes, I am grossly out of shape).

Other perks of this gym? The ridiculously cute front desk guy. And my new green gym bag. And the old ladies there that positively kick my ass in endurance AND speed.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

A fifth of a pound lost is better than a gain any day! It sounds like you're doing a great job with the exercise, keep up the great work, if for no other reason than to checkout cute front desk guy!
