Well today i went to and worked out in a gym for the first time in my life. I know that sounds crazy but i have always been intimated by skinny runners and buff guys that might stare at my fat ass. Then i realzied that they don't matter and I shouldn't care. That I am even in a gym at all show I have what it take to walk out the door and get things done.
I filled my ipod last night and laid out my workout clothes. Went to the Y this morning after dropping the boys off and show and swallowed the lump and ignored the "you don't have to do this voice" (which i think is fat talking trying to keep itself around) I didn't work out too long. I chose an eliptical machine i wanted something to get me to my cardio output pretty quick and it did. at 15 minutes i had reached my goal. i went on to doing leg press machine i did my reps on there.
I am pretty proud i went past the point of hurt into the endorphine zone. I hope i can keep it up and do it almost daily. I know now not to stop when it hurts. you have to keep on it. I plan to go back tomorrow if it's not busy and do some kettlebell training at home.

    My fat talks to me all the time, it convinces me to sit around and watch tv. My wii is my friend against my fat. Glad you shoved the voices down and went on to work out. emoticon

    I live down the street from the Y here, but since we have no one to leave Adam with I miss out on utilizing it's service. But it's all good. I work out on campus (talk about only buff guys and skinny girls) before class two days a week and am really enjoying doing what I can at home. Adam is even plays my new work out game. He thinks its fun. :D Now if only he'd stop making fun of me when I use it. :(
    I'm glad you swallowed the lump and pressed on! This is the start to a new chapter in your life. You can do it!!!!!!

    Good for you to go to the gym! It shouldn't hurt though. Can you get a trainer to help you figure out a routine just for you? Most gyms help new members this way. Good luck-take care! emoticon
