Back in the Saddle
Tuesday, February 07, 2012
I went to Spinning last night for the first time in over a year... it was really, really HARD. I spent a fair portion of the class asking myself why I was there, but I also knew that the first class back would be the worst. I don't know if I'll go back - on one hand, it was somewhat miserable (and I don't think exercise should be that way), but on the other hand, it was a great workout and I've enjoyed spinning in the past, so it might just take a little time to get back into it. I've also done some cardio at the gym in the last week, which felt really good.
Actually though, this week has been off to a rocky start. I don't know why. I wore shorts at the gym and felt super fat. I have never been confident in shorts or swimsuits, and I honestly felt ashamed of myself over how I looked. It's not something I normally worry about too much at the gym though... I guess 9th grade called and wanted to take up space in my head again. Hopefully I can get past this funk and regain my confidence.
