Too hot to handle

Dear You,

I just went to the gym and I'm so proud of myself!

I worked on the bike for 30 minutes. I got 10.2 miles (10.89 with the cool down) which, according to my calculations is like, oh 22 mph. can be shocked cause I was too.


I went to the elliptical and did like 5 minutes of backwards riding, which is intense, but it was cool that it didn't feel weird (like I was going backward) after a minute or two. But I only did 5 minutes because my legs were so tired and my roommate wanted to do weights and I figured I'd do them with her because I don't really know what I'm doing over on that side.

Holy much fun! I am way buffer than I thought too. Must be picking up those kids all the time at work or something. I was doing 2 reps of 10 (I'm trying to use gym speech, but I don't know if it's right) and I felt good. I did different machines for a half hour. I felt like I was floating. It was so amazingly amazing.

Ainsley, this was mostly for you. I think you may be the only one reading that cares. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me to do this again. It really didn't take long (just over an hour with changing and stuff). Last week was pathetic to say the least. I know I can do better. I just have to actually do it.

Goal: Do this again at least 3 times next week.



  1. yay for beth! and yay for floating beth, thats my favorite kind of beth. I am so so so so impressed with you! way to set goals and be awesome. i love you.

  2. i just can't stop smiling for miles. you are so good at healthy choices!

  3. Dude we should go to the gym together. Also, I think you meant you did two sets of ten reps each.
