Monday workout and Rice House

This morning, I did 60 minutes on the elliptical. Felt good to complete the hour, though I'm a little tired now.

At the Rice House, I saw a couple of returning Ricers. one from last August and the other who was here back in October. Was fun to see some returning faces. Even so, I ended up sitting by myself for breakfast, to read a few pages and get some focus for the week ahead. Ended up being joined by Florence, then Karen. Enjoyed their company alot. It was a nice way to start the day.

Shorter workout again

I cut back to 30 minutes on the elliptical again this morning. Had a meeting last night, so I didn't get to bed until a little later than I'd like. Tired today. *sigh*

Good workout

This morning I did 65 minutes on the elliptical-woohoo! Been a while since I've gone that long on the machine. Felt strong.

Mid-week workout

I made this a resting day of sorts, stopped at 30 minutes on the elliptical. Planning to get some walking in at some point today. I'm a little tired today, and my left ankle is nagging me a little.

Back to 60 Minutes

Today I got back up to 60 minutes on the elliptical! Yay! Part of the inspiration is that George and I have a new apartment we're moving into the 3rd weekend in June. The lighter and better in shape I'm in, the easier it'll be to move. Also, it feels like a fresh start!

Another week ahead

Saturday I did an hour on the elliptical, yesterday was 40 minutes. I was hoping to get some exercise outside over the weekend, but it didn't work out. Today I did 45 minutes, again on the elliptical.

Friday workout

This morning I made it for 55 minutes on the elliptical, almost back to an hour! Yay!

Hope I can get some exercise outside this weekend, perhaps do some running.

Progress again

I did 45 minutes on the elliptical this morning, and still made it in to work early. The adjustment feels good. Hopefully I'll make it back up to an hour soon.

A little more

This morning I did 35 minutes on the elliptical, a little more than yesterday. I must admit, I'm enjoying getting to work earlier, especially with everything gong on. I need to find the balance between an hour of daily exercise and finding extra time for work as well.

30-minute workout

This morning I did my shortest workout in a while, 20 minutes on the elliptical and 10 minutes on the elliptical. I felt really tired after a busy Monday, needed to get to sleep earlier but had Covenant Group in Chapel Hill, and didn't get home til nearly 10 last night.Planning to get to bed earlier tonight!!!

Shorter workout

This morning I did 45 minutes on the elliptical instead of the usual hour to 65 minutes. I must admit I enjoyed the extra time to jumpstart my trip to the Rice House and the workday.

Friday morning workout

This morning I did 65 minutes on the elliptical. Would love to start getting to the gym earlier to get in some strength training.

Longer on the elliptical

I did 75 minutes on the elliptical this morning. Felt pretty strong through it all. The iPod is helping a lot, keeping me going through podcasts and playlists.

Morning workout

This morning, I did 65 minutes on the elliptical. My ankles are feeling better today, thank goodness. I took some ibuprofin and soaked my feet in hot water last night.

Progress pictures for George and me

The picture on the left was taken of the two of us a year or so ago, and the picture on the right was taken last Sunday. Interesting to see these two pictures side by side and be able to tell that we've both lost weight. I'm still on the Rice Diet, and George has been doing his own thing.

Elliptical again

I spent 65 minutes on the elliptical again this morning. Not a heavy workout, as my ankles are a little tender, wonder if I might have tendonitis. Hope not! I'd hate to have to slow down on my workouts.

Monday morning workout

This morning I did a pretty vigorous 65-minute workout on the elliptical. Missed using my iPod, though, because the battery had run out and I didn't realize it until I got to the gym!

Saturday I did 70 minutes on the elliptical, and yesterday the gyms were closed for Easter, so I had a morning walk around the cross country trail, and an evening walk around the East Campus (of Duke University) wall. It was a little chilly yesterday, but it was nice to "have" to walk outside.

Longer on the elliptical

This morning I spent 70 minutes on the elliptical. I was feeling generally tired before, now I'm even more tired...and run down. I hope to get to bed at a decent time tonight.

Old gym

Was back to my regular gym this morning. I like the elliptical machine there so much better. Spent 45 minutes on it this morning. I'll take a 15 minute walk around the quad today to fill out the hour of exercise. Did that yesterday, felt great!

Had blood work done at the Rice Diet Clinic this morning, will be interesting to see the results tomorrow.

I'm wearing a new pair of pants today, another size smaller! Yippee!

New gym

I went to the "new" gym to work out this morning, and did 45 minutes on the elliptical. It seems bigger, and has good windows, but the elliptical machines aren't as "high tech." *sigh* It was nice to have a change of scenery, but of course, it's farther away. :-( I'll adjust in time, though. The exercise time is important!

More elliptical

I spent 65 minutes on the elliptical machine again this morning. I'm feeling tired today, so I took it pretty easy, as far as effort. Enjoyed listening to a podcast of NPR's "This American Life."

Monday workout

I did 60 minutes on the elliptical this morning.

The regular early morning crowd at my gym is getting pretty sparse. I wonder if New Year's Resolutions are dwindling, or if people are starting to switch gyms, due to the branch I'm going to closing down next month. I made it over to the next closest branch of this gym chain yesterday afternoon, and it seems pretty nice. It'll be fine, but just farther away.

Yesterday morning, I walked around the cross-country trail, and it was lovely! The trees are blooming, so it's beginning to look quite lush.
