I have just had a fantabulous day.
I have been waffling about trying to run sprints on the treadmill at the YMCA for MONTHS. Not so much that I was afraid of running; more like I was afraid of falling off the treadmill! The thought of it just seemed awkward. But Jillian keeps saying it is one of the best cardio to lose weight, so today, I bit the bullet and gave it a whirl. I ran three 30 second sprints and three 45 second sprints. Not exactly a 5k, but man, was I excited! I didn't fall off the treadmill and it didn't kill me! I walked, then sprinted for a mile and this was after 30 minutes of cross training on the elliptical and 100 crunches on the stability ball.
I don't know why I ever let myself get away from workouts because I feel crazy good after I do them! Not to mention that with each new thing I attempt, not only does it keep my body guessing, but it builds my own confidence. Would still love to attempt a 5k one day, and today was a small start towards that. Small, but still a start!
Then my early birthday gift arrived, which was my little Acer Netbook, all pretty in pink. The Brit got it for me early so I could have a computer for the three weeks we are in England. When I was in England last month, I kept having these crazy urges to write. It may be the different way of life or the different sights and sounds, but several times I was just itching for a computer to peck away at, but either it was not an appropriate time or The Brit was using his laptop. Writing is still a very fragile thing for me; thoughts can go quickly, which is why I generally carry notebook and paper in my bag, but I failed at that on this last trip too. So anyway, very exciting.
Then I have finished the Windows Movie Maker presentation for our two grads at church. Found a song I liked and all, so all I need to do is to have The Brit do a fade out on the music as I can't remember how to do it, and then burn it onto three disks; one for the church and one for each graduate.
I adore productive days! And now I am finished blogging so I can chill the rest of the night and play with my new toy.
Did anyone else have a productive hump day?
