I didn't want to announce it on twitter or on my FB until it had happened, but I went to the gym this evening after work.
My plan is to go at least once a week for a couple of weeks, and then go up to two, and maybe even three times. I will work on my cardio extensively before I consider weights or other things.
I am mentioning this here on the Blog because I want to put it out there that I am doing this. I must and I will consider my health, which includes eating better and exercising more. I do not have an excuse for not doing this, but make a promise to you now that I will do this.
The spin class this evening was challenging. I hadn't done one in 7 or 8 months, and my legs creaked and moaned and begged me to stop. But I persevered, and I felt pretty good afterward. Pretty good and pretty damned hungry. Cardio burns a lot of calories and makes me feel famished.
I stopped off to Costco on the way home and got my glasses fixed. The frames suck; every few months I have to go in and have them re-tightened. After they were fixed, I had one of the famous Costco hotdogs. It tasted like more, but I restrained myself.
When I got home I ate a bagel with cream cheese. Patricia was hungry, and I was still peckish, so I made an omelet at 8 o'clock at night. We shared it. After that, I was no longer hungry.
I have Toastmasters Wednesday night, unless the freezing rain they're threatening comes to pass, in which case the meeting might be canceled. If I can find a spin class Thursday night after work, then I will go to it.
I'm on a roll. A spin. And I will tell you all about it as I progress.
See you tomorrow.
