Last night I just dragged at the gym.   I did 10 minutes on the rowing machine – fine.  Then I was going to walk/jog on the treadmill for 40 minutes.   After five minutes, the idea of spending another 35 on was just killing me.   I felt bored and physically strained.   I normally have a better mental attitude towards jogging, so I just commited to doing 30 minutes on the elliptical instead.    My whole workout just felt like torture.  

Ok, so numbers.   I realized that I am so close to so many different weight milestones.   This morning I weighed in at 206.8 (goodbye junky carb water weight gain!).   That puts me: 0.8 pounds from my lowest recorded weight since August 2004, 2.8 pounds from losing 50 pounds!, 7 pounds from being under 200 (assuming I don’t round up!), 11.8 pounds from my 195 birthday goal, and 19.8 pounds from my weight when I started college (187).

    Keep going. remember that if you need to change your workout up at all, you can do interval training on any of the machines, or even a circuit. This would have the benefit of woking a t a higher intensity so that you burn calories after the workout has finished.
