Is it love?

I think about him all the time. I find myself wanting to spend more and more time with him every day and the more time I do spend with him the better I feel. Any day that I haven't seen him is a day that I feel lost and out of control. Sometimes our time together leaves me disappointed, but sometimes I come home feeling like it could not have possibly gone better. He makes my heart race. He gives me faith in myself. He makes me stronger. He makes me proud. He makes me see my potential. He makes me feel like there's hope for my future...that there's nothing I can't do.

Is it love...or is it a psychotic break from reality brought on by 7ish weeks of calorie reduction? Things are getting serious between Gym and I. Our initial plan was only to meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and to see other people the rest of the week. I can't live without him (literally). Today is Thursday and I found myself at his doorstep for an unscheduled rendezvous. If feeling this way is wrong...I don't wanna be right.

So pick yourselves up off the floor kiddies, mamas pushin' all her limits. Not only am I consistently going, but I'm busting my pasty pale tail. No, really, I'm even sweating...errrr "glistening." Yesterday I even tackled my arch nemesis...the elliptical. If you'll recall, I've tried it only once. I lasted all of three seconds. I had to hold my weight up myself (uh huh, I do realize the world record I broke pulling THAT off) and was going so fast that I thought for sure I would fly right off the thing. I didn't know how to use it and didn't set any resistance or incline. I am now aware that this is a critical component of successful elliptical workouts. I managed 15 minutes yesterday and did 30 today. Tack on the other cardio I'm doing as well and all those Barbie lookin' Phi Beta Delta Kappa Gamma Ho's better watch their backs. I'm bringin' my "A" game, bitches. You're goin' DOWN!

Before I go, I want to give a HOLLAAAAA to all of you that read this and especially those that post comments for me. It really keeps me motivated to finish this journey when I know I have the support of all of you. You are loved!
