Feels good...

Do you ever have such a good workout that you feel like you're above the world? Like you can do anything at that given moment? Like all is well with everything? Like you want to scream out to everyone who can hear you that you're getting fit and healthy? Like you can't wait to come back tomorrow and do it all over again? That was me today. I went to the gym this morning (even had to stand outside for 5 minutes until it opened, lol) and worked myself silly on the elliptical and for some reason, it felt extra good today! Maybe it's because I can remember the days when it took all that was in me to do 5 or 6 minutes until I felt like I was going to pass out. Then I'd stop. I'd feel hopeless. I knew those 5 or 6 minutes didn't do anything for me and I knew I'd pay for the pain that day AND the next. Back in those days, I just wanted to jump on that machine and sweat it up like everyone else did though. They made it look so easy. I wanted to go fast. I wanted to pedal forward AND backward. I knew I couldn't though. The pain in my foot was unbearable. But, NOW I CAN! YAY ME! When I got in my car afterwards, I saw my face in the rear-view mirror and it was fire red! LOL! I think it was that way for the next 45 minutes! Felt good though!

Get out of my way people, Nikki P is coming through! :)

Also, tomorrow is my weigh day. I always weigh myself on Sunday mornings and as always, I'm looking forward to it! Tomorrow is also November 1st (how did that happen?!), so I'll be posting my updated weight over there → in the right hand column and will also post how many pounds I lost this month so keep your eyes out. My shortest term goal starting out was 60 pounds by Nov. 1oth (thanks to my nutritionist friend for my goals! Love having something to aim for!) and I think I'll do it!

Love your enthusiasm. I know what you mean about feeling good about yourself after a workout and although you've worked yourself hard and may be worn out, you feel invigorated!

Hi Nicole..I'm Debi... I came across your blog while looking for blogs with weight loss interests. I'm really glad to meet you and I just wanted to say that I too am in the situation you were in...and I have been looking for a way to express my weightloss endevours through blogging in the hopes to help someone else that might be going through the same things I am. I am glad I found a similar story to mine. If you view my blog you will see that I have struggled with how to use my blog. I do have a draft in my head of how I want my blog to be and to make a long story short... your blog has confirmed to me that I can make it happen. So Thank you...and it is nice to meet you.

You are good for me Nicole.
This past couple of weeks I have not gone good on my health or self and I really need to harness my thoughts and goals from the previous couple of weeks.

Thanks for inspiring me!
