Weighed again: 193

Alright so I knew I had to beef up my workout because I went to a restaurant with my boyfriend the other day so I used the elliptical in conjunction with the recumbent bike. Using the elliptical was the hardest part of the workout probably I'm burning the calories like 7 times as fast as I would on the recumbent bike. I used the bike for 50 minutes and used the elliptical for 14 minutes. Eventually I want to be able to do half and half but for right now I'm not feeling like I'm ready.

Totally surprised myself by my weigh in. I thought I would weigh the same or more since the dinner I ate with my boyfriend the other day was well over 1500 calories. I weighed 193 and I am proud. I feel happy that as long as I maintain exercising it's ok to eat at restaurants occasionally. I wondered what the drop would have been if I didn't eat at the restaurant but I'm happy I'm exercising every night.

I really want to look good at the holiday parties this year so I'm going to fight the temptations of having too much food over the holidays.

Thanks! :) I am getting more excited especially since I found really cute fabric that could be turned into EGL clothes!
