I am proud to say that not only have I met that goal, I have exceeded it!! I just got done with 50 minutes on the elliptical - on a SATURDAY no less! I also got 40 extra minutes of walking in yesterday when, due to time delays, Jonathan was going to be late picking me up. I texted him that I was just going to start walking to the bar in north beach and he could pick me up along the way. I walked from Salt House almost all the way to Kennedy's Irish Curry Bar - a full mile and a half away - on a wonderfully warm late summer evening.
Now I'm not all elated because of YAY WONDERFUL HEALTH BENEFITS - pfffffsh, whatever. I'm elated because I set a goal for myself and I have followed through with it. Don't get me wrong - I still HATE waking up early in order to get my ass on the elliptical. I still would MUCH rather lay in the sun reading instead of walking around on my lunch. But I feel so proud that I have accomplished this goal and feel like I can keep it up (and even add more to it!) as I continue.
Also - last night was AWESOME. It was Jimmy and Jonathan's combined birthday bash at Kennedy's Irish Pub and Curry House. I had some shrimp sagwala that I almost left Jonathan for. I got to hang out with tons of people who I haven't seen for a while and even meet new ones. There's some photos floating around of me that are pretty priceless. I drove home a very drunk Jonathan who wins points by not throwing up until we got out of the car. Overall - it was a great night out.
Now to find a place to live in a month...
