I know I do this every once in a while, that post where I'm all, "Oh my gosh! I totally just did something physical that I didn't think I could do!!". Sorry, this is one of those posts again. I can't help it, I'm positive sometimes :)
I got home yesterday, feeling the need to do some kind of physical activity (it had been a while). So, I broke out the running shoes and got on the elliptical (I had tried it once since I got it back, but only for a few minutes). I think I did about 15 minutes, broken with 30 second/one minute breaks to stretch and relax my ankle. I knew after 15 minutes that my time on it was done, but I wasn't done. So, then I hopped on my bike and did another 15 minutes. I was actually sweaty and had an increased heart rate! This is major for me. Both physically and mentally. I know that the one workout session didn't make a huge change in my body, but I do feel stronger just having accomplished that.
Oh, and my jealousy of my dog is going away as I am taking the afternoon off with my mom and doing some ice-fishing of my own! AND, it is a totally beautiful day outside :) Bliss.
