Seriously, this week long pattern of gloom and doom that keeps happening is really beginning to wear on me. Maybe I need a little more Vitamin D but I have been in a funk in the morning. Today, in particuarly, I actually felt gross and sick. Actually, I'm pretty sure that's just a side effect of my birth control pill, but still, to see the grey and to feel damp and cold... not cool. When do I get my darn summer back???
So sorry for that. it has been, and will be a rough few weeks. I'm having some relationship problems, but what I keep in mind is that going to the gym I don't have to think about any of that. It's me time. It's time to take care of myself and to enjoy myself and to become a whole, strong woman.
I am starting the first phase of "New Rules of Lifting for Women" tomorrow (I think) and am going to see what I can do to take care of my strength, posture, flexibility and physique. What I like about NROLFW is that the reason they pick the exercises they do is because it's for functional strength - not just one muscle at a time with none of the supporting ones. I think that's really what I'm looking for. I have never been "strong" and I have never been "fast" and I have never had a lot of endurance for anything. And I want to fix all of those things. I know it will take time (The program has 6 phases and if I don't miss a single workout I'll only finish Phase 1 by my birthday in June) so I have to keep my chin up and be happy. =
