Year 1 Day 130 (Day 495)

Hi all! What a dreary day outside, it's rainy and very foggy. But thankfully it is warmer today, we have a high of 53. It is suppose to cold down over the next few days though, back to typical January/February weather in Wisconsin.

Today feels different than most days in the sense that I just don't have the motivation to workout. No matter how much I lacked motivation, I still got my workout in. Day 13 has been completed. :) Like always, I feel so much better after my workout. It's always the same, and this is why I didn't skip my workout this morning. I know better than that, and hey, I've got my final weigh-in of the month on Thursday and I'm hoping to see some good results. So far this week, I'm right on key to do that.

I have already completed one of my goals for this week! :) Once my mom faxes this worksheet for me, then all of my paperwork I needed to start school will be complete. And then once they process it and I get my official acceptance, I can start classes :) I'm so excited about this, because as you may have seen in previous posts, I do get rather bored during the day. There is only so much that I can do around the house each day.
