Happy Anniversary!

I joined the YMCA exactly one year ago.  In that time, I've:
  • Spent 97 hours, 32 minutes and 20 seconds (approximately) pumping blood to and from my heart to the rest of my body (doing cardio)!!!
  • Burned at least 66,000 calories
  • Spent an average of 45 minutes in the cardio room
  • And 30 minues lifting weights
  • Lifted a at least 413,160 total pounds
  • Completed at least 8,593 reps
  • Routinely "run" (on the elliptical trainer) anywhere from 2.5 - 3.5 miles per session
  • Logged nearly 30 hours, burned at least 9,000 calories and "ran" 117 miles!
  • Experience one spin class.  (I thought it was a beginners class but was actually an advanced class.  It was all I could do to keep peddling, but I couldn't sit down for a week after!)   
I wish I'd used a tape measure on myself when I began working out, so I could give an update on how my body has changed.  But I didn't honestly want to know how big I was.  All I know is that I've dropped a whole size in pants/shirts.  My face is becoming slimmer.  I've gained confidence in myself which I never knew existed.  I've changed both inside and out.  I'm eager to see what the next year brings!

HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO ME!


Here are before and after pictures thus far.... do you see a change?  I certainly do!
