We WILL miss you guys

Look at us! Geez we look great don't we! Congratulations to Marlene & Dennis, Mary & Bonnie, Ali and Matt... Outstanding! Congratulations to the rest of us, we worked hard, we have real results and real knowledge.! WoooHooo
I was in the gym Monday and Tuesday... No 100day heart challengers there, It was weird, a few of the regular gym folks were there, wheres Marlene, Dennis? I always saw them there, where'd they go? Christy? Lana? Wheres that cute Julianne? Hard to believe the official 100 days are over for us. Sad though isnt it? But happy in all the other reasons; we have lifelong friends that we shared the experience with! We will miss you guys! We'll have the "reunion", and see where were off to, talk about our experiences in greater detail,a nd reminisce about the first days when we got on the treadmill and couldnt't do more than a few minutes to now where we could walk from here to salt lake! You guys are great and I for one am happy to have met you and got to know you.. Take care and see you in the gym...( if i don't see you, i'll certainly be thinking of you)! Rest assured, if I do see you I will saunter over and stop and say hello! Thats what I do!

The End of the Beginning!

Well kids, it's officially the end of the beginning, we weigh out tommorrow at 7:00, and the celebration dinner is Wednesday ! We made it, in my mind, its been one of the best things both Kathy and i have done in a long time. I need to re-set my schedule now, what am I going to do...I get off work and go to the gym, now what? I know get off work and go to the gym! Its been a pleasure getting to know you all, the personal trainers and the other folks that werent part of the heart challenge but were in the gym every day as well. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, and best wishes!
We all are looking great arent we? I wouldnt belive that only 100 days ago, we were wondering what are we supposed to do, what changes will we see, will the changes be good, bad, unknown.
We have added another notch in our experience belts, we now know what to do, and best of all how to do it!
We have built ourselves a little niche of the 100day heart challenge club, its been an honor getting to know all of you, and we hope to have built a long lastin g friendship with each of you! Take care and see you in the gym! Eric

As we come to a close

As we come to th close of this awsome challenge, I want to personnaly thank all the trainers Riley, Julliane, Catherine, Alicia, Chantel, for your support and patience! You guys have been great! Traci-Thank you too for your encouragement and help! We all really didn't believe you the first day when you said "I don't really like working out, but I love the way it makes me feel!" Well you made a believer out of me, we often quote you now, but HA HA I fooled you.. i kinda like the working out part too!

The bad news, I did a stress test as afollow up to having stents installed last July, It came back with a positive blockage (not agood thing) so I'm blogging from the hospital, they did an angio gram to see if i needed more stents, or??? Well it was a false positive! All is clear YAYYYY. but, the doc won't let me walk, jog, run in the 5k race for the red tommorrow. But i'm going, I want to cheer all of you on! WHat an outstanding job you've done and look at all you've accomplished! We all now know how to do it and I for one and Kathy for one more will continue. It has been an honor to get to know you folks. See you at the race and see you on June 12th! AND--See you in the gym!

Now we know

Now we know what those little white machines are in the gym, 90 days ago we looked at those and thought, what do those do? Am I going to be using one of those? Am I going to be using ALL of those? Now we look at "those" with a whole new respect...some we hate, some we like, (I don't think we could love one), we use them, they don't complain (well except for the old gray eliptical, it complains alot!)

We have learned what they do, what they don't do and some of them we want to smash into teeny tiny pieces! But they're always there for us, we get done, wipe our sweat off of them, and we look in the mirror (don't fib, I see you do it;) and see the changes they've helped us accomplish.

We're glad they're there, glad we learned to use them, and happy for the fitness we acheived. Thanks to all the personal trainers for the education, the support, and the never let up attitude, you guys have been great!

See you in the gym!

Did someone tell you?

I look at you guys and man have I seen changes. They're not subtle changes. You guys are looking good! People at work have made a comment to me regarding weight loss, inch loss, energy, whatever, Did someone tell you? I just smirk, and think to myself ...yeah babyyyy cool!

I could get used to this, I don't know about you, but i'm staying with it. Traci was right, I really like the way it makes me feel. Tell me you agree.

I'm likin' the way I look straight down and I can see my shoes! 1 goal down, now just turn this keg into a six pack! See you in the gym!
