Starting 2008 off with a bang

There's nothing like starting off a new year with a great day! I had such a good day yesterday that I managed to jazz myself up again. The last time I felt this pumped was my last doctor's appointment when I was showered with kudos.

My husband made us a great breakfast (multigrain toast, poached egg, sliced orange and a glass of milk). I made a list of my 2008 goals (see below). I made a new chili recipe in the slow cooker. I got on my exercise bike (first time since September!) and went for 75 minutes. While pedaling, I also finally got around to reading my Prevention Magazine's Biggest Loser special edition. After that, I had a nice long bath with my favourite bath oil and a trashy romance novel. I even shaved my legs so that I can stare at them more at the gym. Dinner was finished by the time I got out and wow, was it ever good (I'll post a separate review of it later). And finally, we ended the evening by watching the new season of The Biggest Loser.

What a great day. And this morning my weight is down to a more respectable figure. I'm still up, but not as much as before. Whoo!

I almost forgot! I did something else yesterday that I'm very proud of. I threw out ALL of the Christmas treats. Every single last one of them. In the garbage and gone for good.

Hey! I'm excited to hear you're going to try spinning too! I found out there's still some availability in the class I wanted so it looks like I'm going to do it...kinda nervous though cause I'm REALLY not an athlete...I hope I can survive the first class, eep! You'll have to keep me posted and let me know how the first one goes for u (mine starts on Jan 11).
