Things are looking swell this month. Getting to the gym more and more, and I am proud of myself for that. I don't think I realized just how much I would have to ease back into it - I don't think I realized how out of shape I was getting! Sure, I still walked on the regular and that sort of thing, but that's certainly a lot different than working it for an hour on the elliptical! I have gone four times each week these last couple of weeks, plus additional sparkpeople exercises and walking on the other days, and I am hoping to soon be getting there five days a week - every morning before work!
I have forgotten how much I like the morning workouts as well. I feel that they give me a couple of hours of energy right at the beginning of the day, which I don't otherwise get if I sleep in and miss the workout. Sometimes I get a little bit tired at the end of the day - but I think everybody does! And I am still getting back into shape, so I hope that fades out a little bit soon.
I hope to weigh myself tomorrow after the gym (if I remember!) and report my progress. The boyfriend is coming down for the weekend too, and I couldn't be more excited to see him. Every Monday morning sees me looking forward to Friday, when I can possibly see him again! I can't wait to spend an evening alone with him tomorrow. We plan on ordering Greek take-out - I am going with the chicken lemon rice soup and perhaps a side Greek salad - mmm, so tasty. Saturday we are hanging out with my mom and doing some tourist-y stuff around my hometown that he hasn't checked out yet, so that should be fun. And also active, so that's a bonus!
Just got back from a bike ride this evening, and the sky was so beautiful. I am feeling very energized and refreshed and just wonderful about myself and about life. I've missed that feeling that exercising gives me!
Hope everybody has a good weekend! What are your plans?
