I am happy to say that even though it wasn't a big change, it was a change in the right direction. :) I lost 1 pound last week which brings my grand total to 17 pounds. Yeah! I would really love to lose 3 more pounds by the end of the year to bring it to an even 20 pounds, but I think that might be stretching it.
My self-imposed exercise challenge is going well. I have now exercised for at least 30 minutes for 23 days in a row. A week from today I will have made it to my goal of 30 days in a row. I have to admit that when I started, I wasn't really sure I could do it, but now with only 1 week left, I think I will be able to do it with no problem.
My trip to the gym was as bad as I feared. I couldn't even find the machines I was looking for and couldn't find anyone to help me, so I wound up just getting on the EFX for 25 minutes which is fine, but I had already walked for 45 or 50 minutes that morning, so I wasn't looking for more cardio, I wanted to do some strength training. I think the Y offers a program for people "new" to working out that I am going to take advantage of. Once I get a feel for the equipment, I don't think I'll have a problem using it. Until then, I am doing squats and lunges at home, so hopefully that is better than nothing. :)
