Now I know why I stay fat!
Because it's SO much easier! Today I went to my first workout session at the YMCA. All I had to do was exercise on the cardio equipment for 30 minutes. All I had to do! P-sha! It seemed easy enough. She wanted me to get my heart rate up to 143 for most of the time, but that wasn't happening. I managed to get it there for a few minutes shortly after I started, and I thought for sure my heart was going to beat right out of my chest and I was going to die! I did my best, with a couple of breaks in between, and lived to the end of my time. When I finished, I was sure that at any moment I was going to fall over dead. I didn't, but I sure wanted to. I'm supposed to go back on Thursday, but man, I'm scared just thinking about it! I know it's a good thing, though, and that it will get easier with time...if I don't fall over dead first! However, I will mention that I kinda forgot to eat lunch before I went (lost track of the time), and I didn't eat a whole lot for breakfast four and a half hours before. I also didn't bring water, not realizing that I'd actually be working out today. Perhaps that will help the next time.

Oh, I was also told that the 1200-1500 calories that I've been eating each day are not enough. I was told I can't eat less than 1800 until my body and stomach have gotten used to everything and shrunken down some. Do you know that that was the highlight of my day! I immediately went home and had two more bites of everything, which pretty much covered those extra calories!

Okay, talk to you later! Bye!

    Hooray for more calories!

    Just think how proud you'll be when you see how far you've come. Also, this is another reason it's a good idea we're holding off on the aquarium til Friday.

    Who is this "she" and why is she forcing people to work out too hard? Just go for a 30 minute walk. It's a great workout, and you can spy on all your neighbors.
