Day 8 - Visibly Better

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I made it to the gym this morning! It had been so long that the woman who works at the front desk asked me where I have been. I told her, "I've been in laziness." She asked what brought me back and I told her New Years Resolutions, needing to take care of myself, and planning to do an open-water swim at the end of May that I need to get in shape for.

I did a half hour on the elliptical and felt great afterward, if sweatier than I've been in awhile. I expected the gym to be packed, but it wasn't. Could the resolutioners be dropping off already?

This morning one of my co-workers asked me how the carb reduction thing was going and I told him it's going great. He said that even without knowing that I'm working on being healthier, he can really see in my face that I have more energy and I'm feeling better. I kind of thought my complexion was looking brighter, and he basically confirmed that.

These are the posts I need to come back and read when I'm contemplating falling off the wagon again. I need to remember that this isn't a diet, and it's not a temporary thing. Being healthy is a way of life and I need to stick to it!
