Day 51

..and I'm over that line and on my way! At least, that's how I feel today. I feel really good about my accomplishments and my progression thus far. I started to get down on myself today when I could not go to the gym. My period is just that heavy. However the reason that I cant go isn't because I'm not capable. Its because I don't want to make a mess with everyone watching and embarrass myself. So I called my brother and asked him to take a walk with me. I find him really easy to talk to, plus he is built like a line backer so I don't feel unsafe walking around Baltimore City after dark. I walked 1.4 miles tonight. Without the treadmill. It totally kicked my butt. You never really realize how much easier on you the treadmill is. Plus, the off treadmill route had hills and terrain changes. I walked 1.4 miles in 35 minutes. I even took the most challenging hill on the way home too. The one I avoid like the plague when it snows or rains. I had to slow down a bunch at the top of the hill, but I kept going. I'm really proud of myself today. It was a cardio day and I got my cardio in!

Tomorrow is a cardio and strength day, so lets hope my issues slack off a bit. We are carving pumpkins tonight, and I'm really excited. I know, I'm like 12 right? I love Halloween, and I always have. I wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood this year, but I don't think that I can afford the costume this year. Plus sizes are incredibly expensive. Next year, if I keep this trend up, maybe I wont need to order a super plus sized costume from online. So I have noooo idea what I am doing on Halloween, but I do have my kitty cat back up. ;)

Cat outfit is great. :o) We love the kitties!

I completely understand why you wouldn't want to use the gym... Every month there are one or two days when I 'can't leave the house', if you know what I'm saying... ;o)
