If this doesn't motivate me... I don't know what will.

So today I was at the gym. I was using my favorite elliptical (never thought I'd say that, haha) when a seriously 400 pound man got on the one beside me. I had my resistance at a level 8, and I peeked to see that he kept his on 1. However, he seriously was running so fast on that thing... that the elliptical messaged "warning:do not pedal any faster" What??? I didn't even know this was possible. I usually keep at a steady pace, however today I vowed to stay with this man. He ran for a solid 40mins. I usually only do 30, but hell if he could do it, I could do it.
I didn't tell him this, but he really motivated me. He worked so hard, and it made me want to work hard.


  1. Excellent post. Keep up the great work!

  2. Wow, I imagine that would motivate me as well! Good for you... sometimes it can be hard to push harder and this kind of motivation is priceless!

  3. Thank you! I just hope I keep up, it is so hard not to slip back into bad habits!
