Hello hello. I am in a happy happy mood. I finally joined the gym and today was my first day. I took it slow today - 20 mins treadmill at 5 kph, 15 mins cycling and 15 mins of cross-trainer (or whatever its called) and some mins of stretching (cool down). This is not including the 15 min walk to the gym (I took a cab on the way back. I was late for office and tired out. Besides, I didn’t want to reach office and collapse like an overburdened fat cow.

Oh, but I did enjoy the exercise. It amazes me, really, how much I do enjoy exercising (after it’s done) and yet it is such a task to get me moving. You know I have been talking about doing something for the past 6 months and finally got around to joining the gym only now. The problem is that I start enthusiastically but can never sustain the momentum. And I have started and left exercising so many times in the last 10 years that I could just not motivate myself to start this time. But now that I have, I’m glad!
