The awesomeness that is friends

I got the BIGGEST surprise ever today! I had no idea, although I had suspicions that SOMETHING was up. I'm so excited! A bunch of friends all got together me a treadmill and an elliptical!! I'm still just overwhelmed at the generosity. I mean, I never can imagine that people would do something that generous for me. And it just astounds me. Yeah, when I was first alone, I cried. lol I do TRULY appreciate it and I am truly blessed to have such awesome people in my life and supporting me in this weight loss.

I had a huge preconception of starting off doing an yeah ok...I did 10 minutes on the treadmill and was sweatin like a punk. And then...2.5 minutes on the ellip...WOO. And my thighs are BURNING. So preconception is GONE...hahaha, and I'm developing a plan of action to get up to that. Definitely gotta work up to it, but I'm so crazy excited to have the chance to DO IT! The Walk Away dvds were such a great tool to get me started, but I'm ready to ramp it up more, and its so hard when D needs to get to bed early. GREAT JOB, LADIES, you made a great birthday even better!!!

I call this look "Permagrin"
