I finally joined the gym yesterday. I went on my lunch break and they gave me a great corp. discount. Anyhow...after dinner and going for a walk with my little guy and E I went to the gym. I've been a member of this gym before so I have a favorite elliptical machine I like to use but it was taken. The one I had to use had a ton more resistance than I'm use to. It said it was on level 1 but it FELT like 3 or 4. Anyhow...I was on the elliptical for 30 min. I went 1 and 1/2 miles in 28 minutes. I burned 300 calories. I wanted to go at least for 30 so I finished out my time. I had originally planned on a 45 min. workout but I was exhausted. This was my first day back and I think I did pretty good to start out. When I got home, E and I put in a movie to watch. In the middle of the movie my back/neck started KILLING me. It feels like someone stuck a knife between my shoulder blades. I don't know if it has to do with me working out or if I did it lifting Liam funny or doing something else strenuous. In any case I woke up this morning and my back is still hurting very badly. I'm sitting here at work looking like a hunch back with a stiff neck. :( I was so excited to get back to the gym and I may not be able to go again tonight. We'll see how the day goes.
