When it rains, it pours... awesomeness

I feel awesome today. I am excreting awesomeness, in fact. Today, I went to the gym, and with no hesitation hopped on the eliptical. I kept my heart at its target rate, rarely going above it (it was nice to be in control of how hard my heart beats) and burned 485 calories in 35 minutes. Then I hopped on the treadmill for 20 minutes. 5 of those minutes, I ran. I ran. I runned. It. Was. Beautiful. I am so proud of my self. I called my mom just after I left to tell her the awesome news. Hey mom, hey. Hey mommy hey. Mommy, hey mom, hey. Hey. Hey, hey mom hey! Guess what I did! You'll never guess what I did. Guess what I did! I ran. I RAN. I. Feel Awesome. Its like crack. (I don't know what crack is like.)

Now, I didn't run all five of those minutes together. I sparsed it out over the 20 minutes, but I'm new at this. I haven't attempted to run since some killer shinsplints, and some guys watching me out their window from last summer.


Did I mention how awesome I feel? I will probably not feel so awesome tomorrow, I can feel my knee tighening up right now, as a matter of fact, but I'm feeling pretty awesome right now, so I don't really care. Tuesday. Either in the morning, or in the evening, but I can't wait to try this again.

Current weight: 302.7

*I was going to make this a post about how awesome I am, and how terrible my new roommate is, and the fact that she's leaving in a handful of days, but then decided to just focus on how I am currently feeling. I think I've fully established how I feel, but in case you missed it, I feel AWESOME.
