inspired

yesterday morning, cold as it was, i was excited to start out my new exercise regimen with melissa. what i didn't expect was that, last night, i would say to david, "i think i want to go again tomorrow." so, this morning, when the alarm went off at 5:15, i sprang out of bed snoozed it until 5:30, when david wanted to be up, got into my workout clothes, and made my way out the door.

after shivering in my sub-zero car while the engine warmed up and the frost melted from my windshield, i almost changed my mind. almost. but i didn't. i drove my little car to the gym, threw my stuff in a locker, filled up my water bottle, stuck my headphones in my ears, and i did 2.45 miles on the elliptical, burning 300 calories and causing me to drink nearly all 24 ounces of water in my bottle.

then it was on to the free weights, where i spent a good 20 minutes doing various body-toning exercises. i finished off with a few more body-toning exercises on the machines and was on my way by 6:40.

i think i'm going to like this!
