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!


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