So tonight, I was supposed to have worship practice, which was going to be my oh-so-convenient excuse for not going to the gym, even though I've only gone once this week so far. In my defense, I was in the car 8 hours on Monday, and I did do some heavy-duty kickboxing last night. Nevertheless, in order to get my three 1/2 hour strength training sessions in this week, I gotta go tonight. Cry. My body is still sore, for crying out loud! Mercy!
And now I'm home I'm sitting here thinking about how this is going to suck up all my time tonight. I'll go to the gym, come home, cook dinner, pay bills and it'll be time to plop back into bed for tomorrow's repeat. Booooo, says I. Joining the gym was part of the process of simplifying life, to be sure, but now I just feel like a workout hermit!
And sadly, one who is not losing weight! Yesterday, I weighed in at my fitness group as 174.
I weighed 175 when I started this time! and I weighed 171 on my bathroom scale this morning, but COME ON. I've been working out harder than I've ever worked out in my life - not a lie - and I am just not seeing the weight or the inches come off this time around. Frustrating to the max!
Oh well, I guess if I just sit here making up excuses, I'm never going to actually go, huh?
Better hop to.
