Day 3

Today was awesome.  It started out rough again.  My feet were still killing me.  Breakfast was pretty gross, but I knew I needed it for the hike.  I thought my new insoles would help my feet on the hike, but they were so sore after the hike.  However, the "mountain" class turned my day around somehow.  This is a class where you're on a cardio machine, and every 3 minutes you go up a level, 12 times.  To be blunt, I had my a$$ handed to me, but I was so proud of myself.  My feet hurt too bad for the treadmill, and all of the bikes were taken, so I had to use the elliptical, which I HATE.  My feet were numb after about 3 minutes, but we weren't allowed to stop and I didn't want to quit like I usually do after just a couple minutes on an elliptical.  I went the entire 45 minutes, up all levels.  I may not have been going as fast as some, but I did it.  That somehow fired me up for pool, which was really hard today, and then I FINALLY got to do the kickboxing class which was awesome!!!!  And then, dinner was probably the most delicious thing I've ever eaten, and it was SALMON!  Can you believe that, Mom, Laura, Adam, Jill????

I wore my Tyrannosaurus Racks t-shirt today and it got some good laughs!

We also had the weekly Target trip tonight which was so fun.  I of course needed something for my feet, and also got some gum, etc.  NO pop though :)

For the first time since I got here, I'm looking forward to tomorrow.
