Post 2243 - Back to the Gym

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.
