I am officially registered to use the equipment at work. They have three bikes, two treadmills, two ellipticals, a rowing machine, and a stepper. Plus weights and such. I will go tonight as soon as I get finished at work. I decided to go after work instead of on my break because I was told my break time is a busy time and when I finish for the day it is empty. I would rather figure out how to use the machines without other people around, plus I don't want to feel rushed like I would on my break. I may only go after work tonight and tomorrow though since I should get home right after work Thursday and Friday to see my parents.
I am quite excited by this opportunity, as long as I don't chicken out. I have every right to be there so there is no reason to be scared. Besides, it's cheaper than a gym membership

Tomorrow I meet with a health coach at work to get cleared to use the equipment at the hospital. I hear they have treadmills, stationary bikes, and an elliptical (yay!). Now when I can't walk on my break I can use the equipment. No more excuses when I'm too tired after work to hit the treadmill at the apartment.
I also may very well be getting my elliptical. I talked to my parents and it came up that my exercise bike is falling apart and the new one I want. My stepdad asked how much it was and said we'd talk about when they got here this weekend. I could handle that as a belated birthday present.
Hard to believe how excited I am about exercise equipment!

So today is day one of the "Drop a Ton" challenge at work. The goal is to have us lose 2,000 pounds combined. So many of us signed up it works out to 4-5 pounds each. No way will I be happy with that! Two months and I plan on losing more than 5 pounds.
For the initial weigh-in I was beyond depressed - my heaviest ever. Too much GF specialty food and not getting my heartrate up enough I'm sure. So today I officially started being grain free, not just gluten free. May try going back to rice, quinoa, and corn after I get my stomach back on track after all the GF bread. Goal is to just eat clean.
Also started my walking on my break today. That was a good walk, even though I tracked it wrong. I'm looking at minutes anyway so it's ok. Tried taking the babies for a walk this morning - they were not fans!
I gave in and went shopping after work for jeans. I have several in the next smaller size and was putting off buying any wanting to fit into the ones I have. Well, I only have one decent pair left that I can wear and my khakis are getting stained so I've been wearing my yoga pants on the weekends. So with my parents coming to visit in a couple weeks I decided to just bite the bullet and get a couple pair from Goodwill. I was really worried because I did NOT want to buy bigger pants. I started with the bigger size, but they didn't fit, so I ended up with my current size after all. Small miracle, but I'll take it!
It's nice being in the competition. I miss that with my old job, so was excited to get started. The kick in the a$$ I need to get back on track. And now I'm not so odd drinking my spinach or kale smoothies
