Alright....before this weekend the last time I actually got into the gym was August...AUGUST! When I went there in August I was confronted with the fact that it had in fact been so long since I had been there the gym had changed management....and become a different gym (They even painted the building inside and out and changed the layout etc)! I had no idea...I had to re-register and everything! I hadn't been back there since August until yesterday and I was so afraid of going in there.....confronted with all of the fit thin girls at the desk who would see me and their computer and know that I hadn't worked out in months (which is obvious) as I asked for my new member card that I hadn't botherd to come back and pick up in 4 months...but I did it.
I got up, ate a healthy breakfast and dragged myself there...and it wasn't so bad! I got my new card, winced while they took my new picture and signed in and got down to business. I worked out for about 2 hours and felt great!
Today when I woke up my body was obviously telling me that I am more out of shape than I like to admit with all its aching and creaking. I had a moment of wanting to give up but I sucked it up got in my car and went back for round 2. I knew that I could either not go back and take a few days and let my body regain its feeling of comfort but then I thought I'd just be back where I started so I decided to work through the pain and hit up an hour of cardio. It still hurts but it can only get better!
I've been changing my eating habits for about 2-3 weeks now and this was my first couple of days in the gym in months. I'm feeling pretty good! Tomorrow is going to be my first encounter with a scale since I began my get -healthy crusade... I hope it brings good news!!!
