Then, when I started exercising, I realized I was getting back to the place where it was actually fun. I started with half an hour on the elliptical. I was able to keep my heart rate right around 140 for most of the time and still breathe through my nose. It felt really good. I did two 45 minute sessions on the bike to finish up the exercise. On the bike I was able to keep my heart rate around 130. It was a great exercise day!As I keep going on this journey, I’m finding out more about myself, my priorities, and what I really can do when I work at it. All my life I’ve been really good at accomplishing my goals. At school and at work, whatever I decided I wanted to do, I did. But losing weight was the one thing I couldn’t do. No matter how many times I tried, I just couldn’t do it. But, now I am realizing that I always gave up too fast. When it got hard, it was easy to say that I just wasn’t capable of it. Now, I realize that when it gets hard, I have to work harder. And this time, I will succeed.
