The Gym ::dun dun duuuunnnn::

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Went to the gym last night for the first time in years and I actually enjoyed myself. Seeing as how it has been forever and a day since I've done any excessive activity, I took it easy and just went for 30 minutes. And I kicked butt on the Elliptical and burned over 300 calories.

About 15 minutes into my workout, my legs started screaming at me to stop. And even though I was listening to music, I was chanting "mind over matter, mind over matter, mind over PAIN!" in my head. And it worked for me. At the 20 minute mark the pain had subsided and I was able to finish the originally planned time frame.

I'm pretty stoked. I know this is a slower process versus some fad diet, but this isn't a diet, its a lifestyle change. I'm re-training my mind and body to be healthy.

Can't wait to hit the gym again tomorrow night!

    I'm impressed that you fought so hard and didn't give up. So much opportunity to come up with excuses, and you didn't choose that path.

Plus "stoked" is a great word!
