Yeah... that's right! I spent an hour there with my friend Jennie after she paid 5 bucks for me to get in to her gym and then she had to leave but I stayed an extra hour and worked out even more. We used the treadmill, the bike, the exercise balls and hand weights, the crunch board, some kind of arm squeezy thingy and something for your calves. I probably spent the most time on the treadmill though for sure and the bikes. Once I figured out how to get the fan to turn on by working out harder and making it blow harder i was in heaven. lmao.
I took some pictures for you guys. <3
Waiting in the parking lot for Jennie to show up. lol

After me and Jennie worked out.
It's hard to take pics when you're running. lol
Even harder to get non blurry stat pics. lol
Dripping sweat like crazy on the treadmill
working it on the bikes
Churning my feet as fast as they could go. lol
After I finished working out.
I also worked out at home doing roughly 40 minutes of cardio yesterday morning and then the Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout after dinner. :) When I stepped on the scale this morning I saw 184.0!!! Lowest number to date. It was only 184.4 when I first reached it. lol. So HELL YEAH!!!!!!!! I'm finally back on track!!!! I've lost 5.8 lbs since last Friday when I weighed in at 189.8 lbs. I feel on fire!!! :D
Oh and for those of you wondering how my lunch at Applebee's went yesterday. It was probably the best meal I've ever eaten in my entire life. OMG! soo good. And I was guilt free knowing it was 550 calories and being able to easily schedule lighter meals and snacks the rest of the day. :)
7 oz. sirloin grilled and topped with succulent shrimp in a light cream sauce and served with herb potatoes, seasonal vegetables, fresh bruschetta, sliced almonds and chopped parsley.
For whatever crazy reason, I wasn't expecting broccoli to be on my plate or else I would have asked for something else. But since it arrived that way I figured I better give it a try. I've hated cooked broccoli my entire life after being forced to eat it as a child and not allowed to leave the dinner table until i had 'eaten' it, or in my case stuffed it in my cheeks and chewed it into tiny bits just long enough to get up and go to the bathroom and spit it out. However, recently a group of friends were all eating raw broccoli and offered me some. I took it and ate it because I hadn't eaten anything since the night before and was really hungry. It didn't taste too bad. Well this Applebee's broccoli was apparently steamed and didn't feel too soggy or gross. It was covered in juice from my steak though as well and that made it absolutely delicious! I not only ate it, but I liked it!!
