getting back in the game.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Yesterday was the first time that I had been to the gym since my dad passed away a month ago. Actually it was the first time that I have really even wanted to get out of bed; really wanted to do more than go through the motions of everyday life.

Not sure what it was that got into me. I think part of it was realizing the weight I have put on in the last month, eating comfort food and laying in bed, and the other part probably realizing that I am my father's daughter. I am a complete mini version of him. From his body structure, to his eating habits, to his way of thinking. And I think if I were to stay on this course, I would leave this earth early too.

So off to the gym I went. I even printed off this weight lifting for beginners routine, and I just have to say that today I am the most sore that I have ever been in my entire life.. from my shoulders to my calves... I can barely walk, barely breathe! haha

Once I actually got into the gym, Im not sure what came over me, but I wanted to make sure that I did all the things on my print out list, and instead of flying through them; I did each set each rep slow and steady concentrating on form. Then after that I decided to get on the elliptical and burn 400 cals.

:) It was good getting reacquainted with the gym.. Ive missed that place.

    Good job - bet inside you feel much better even with the soreness - I know I do, its a great feeling of accomplishment and the sore muscles are like badges of honor for me especially when I haven't been there for awhile - great job getting back on track with your goals.
