Dear Blog Journal,
Another good day! I made it to my workout...I was even looking forward to going in! Of course after today I'm now looking forward to my day of rest whish will be tomorrow...LOL! :)

I surprised myself today by choosing to run around the block instead of rowing as part of the warm-up and the cool thing was that I actually ran the whole way without stopping. Woohoo me!! I didn't like the feeling of all the cold air in my chest afterwards, though, so that made it a little bit harder for me to recover...at least that's what I'm blaming it on at the moment - ha!

The other thing that I did that is something to take note of was to almost make myself sick from doing the side to side jumps...OY! After each round my stomach was churnin' a little bit but I worked through it without any incidents. WHEW!

In just a couple of days I will be coming forward with some workout goals for the New Year. Being that I'm so new to this whole fitness thing I'm really not sure what I should be focusing on, yet. Both Nathan and Tina have told me what they think my fitness goals should be and I am definitely going to take their advice into consideration as I make my concrete goals. So stay tuned for those...I'm hoping to have those posted on January 1st. :)
