Going to the gym
Tuesday, January 19, 2010
So after having foot surgery Dec. 4, today is the first gym day for me. I get to do the stationery bike and lift some weights. I never thought i'd be nervous and excited about this!
Before the surgery, i lost 40 pounds. Eating right, exercising... i was doing it the right way. Since the surgery, the holidays hit, and i was in a wheelchair most of the time. I went back to the gym last week just to weight myself, to see where i was.
I had lost five more pounds. WHAT? Granted, it's probably mostly muscle, but still...
i am SO jazzed to be going back to the gym, even if it's on a limited basis. It grounds me, makes me feel good and helps me sleep at night.
Something clicked, and it's still clicking.
