OMGosh, I have never had one of those before.......

Well I have been exercising since the first of the year!!! I have lost 3lbs total, which I know may not seem like a lot, considering it is 3 months in, but I really just want to tone up and lose some inches.  I have been using the elliptical. I started out only being able to do 3 minutes and I thought I would die, and I gradually worked my way up, 7 minutes, 12 minutes, 17 minutes, and so on until I got up to 30 minutes. Then my next goal was 2.5 miles in 30 minutes, by the end of January I had reached that goal! And I was so proud of myself!!! woot woot! Now I am comfortable doing 30 minutes and a distance of about 2.6 to 2.75 miles! Now I have started a new adventure, RUNNING! I have ran the last 3 days a mile without stopping, which I think is great for me, especially since I have never ran a day in my life!! I would love to be able to run 3miles in 30 minutes. I never realized how much different using the elliptical and running was. I run at about 5.8mph on the elliptical and only about 5.4 on the treadmill and running wears me out!!! This weekend, I am hitting the open road and testing my strengths!! It is supposed to be really pretty, so I am super excited!!!
Oh and in reference to the title I am referring to this!!!


in case you can't tell, I am referring to my calf muscle!!! I am so in love with it!!!!  It really is a lot prettier in person!! hahah

Dont you just love running when its pretty like this. I have class tonight and tomorrow so I wont get to run when its pretty outside like this but I am going to go to the gym when class is over and go on the elliptical for 30 minutes. It helps if you watch TV on the elliptical because you forget what you are doing!
